When a young boy reluctantly becomes involved in his school play, he takes on not just the role of 'the old crone' but also a journey of discovery about his family. As the novel unfolds, a wonderful drama ensues, both in school on the stage and at home as the boy's relationship with his father becomes truer and more honest when some secrets buried in a dusty box in the attic are unveiled. A delightful novel told with the masterly control and calm excitement that we now expect from award-winning Sharon Creech.
