Summary: Ignatius “Brother” Alderman, nearly twelve, promises to help his grandparents keep the family’s Oregon ranch the same while his brothers are away and his father is deployed to Iraq, but as he comes to accept the inevitability of change, he also sees the man he is meant to be.
Thank you so much for considering my book. I see you’ve also listed Jane in Bloom by my fellow Class of 2K9 Member, Deborah Lytton. Our class (22 debut MG and YA authors) is making an effort to reach out to library summer reading programs with free author visits via Skype or a chat room.
We’d be glad to visit your Newbery Club as well. Our goal is to do something special for librarians who do so much to support literacy in the community. You can contact us for a visit from any one of our authors through our website http://www.classof2K9.com or the email authorstogo@classof2K9.com.
