Product Description
 

Stuey's story will set imaginations spinning with possibilities about other worlds, ancient sins, and the power of truth.-Publishers Weekly (starred review)


Hatred combined with lies and secrets can break the world. Grandpa Zach used to say that before he died, but Stuey never really knew what he meant. It was kind of like how he used to talk about quantum physics or how he used to say ghosts haunted their overgrown golf course. But then one day, after Stuey and his best friend, Elly Rose, spend countless afternoons in the deadfall in the middle of the woods, something totally unbelievable happens. As Stuey and Elly Rose struggle to come to grips with their lives after that reality-splitting moment, all the things Grandpa Zach used to say start to make a lot more sense. A 2019 Edgar Award Winner, this is a book about memory, loss, and the destructive nature of secrets, but also about the way friendship, truth, and perseverance have the ability to sew a torn-apart world back together.
