Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
It is more than a book, it is a mini history lesson in how one action can cause a reaction or consequence.
It is also a look at being new to a town and learning to like where you end up. Complaining and wanting to leave all the time can make it worse. It is a book of secrets that need keeping.
The characters are fleshed out enough for the story to come to life. The epilogue explains about the true town and what really happened with Singapore, Michigan.
Adrian misses the life he had in busy Chicago, but finally develops a friendship with a boy, R.T., that can make realistic animal sounds. Jake, the town bully, has it in for Adrian and as fate would have it the land they purchased is right next door to Jake's house.
You may find a change in tense now and again, but the plot will keep you engaged and the characters will cling to your memory.
The characters are very well developed, and the story is just an enjoyable look at thwe daily life for a 12 year-old boy in 1880's Michigan.
Truly a warm, enjoyable read for all age groups.
