Jeff's mother, who deserted the family years before, reenters his life and widens the gap between Jeff and his father, a gap that only truth, love, and friendship can heal.
This is the story of Jeff, whose loving mother abandoned him in the hands of his cold father, where he builds a life based on not interacting much. And then, one glorious day, his mother wants him back, and love re-enters his life...for a while. This story of an isolated child taken on a shattering emotional rollercoaster ride, and how he finds the strength to put himself back together and to distinguish real love from false is a wonder and a joy, and the high point of an excellent series of books. I loved it as an adult, and my kids liked it when I read it to them.
