Product description

Ware wants to spend summer in his own fantasy world, generally being left alone. Instead, he’s being sent to the dreaded Rec camp, to do whatever activities so-called ‘normal’ kids do. On his first day Ware meets Jolene: a tough, moody girl planting a garden in a ruined church. Before long Ware is skipping Rec, creating his own ‘castle’ in the church lot. Ware is the dreamer. Jolene keeps things real. Who’s right? Well – they have to unite! When the precious lot is threatened, it’s up to them to save it. But this is the real world, not a fairytale story. Can two misfit kids fight grown-up forces? And what does a real-life hero even look like?

  • A tale of misfit kids fighting greed and corruption
  • By the highly acclaimed author of the bestseller Pax
  • A gorgeously moving ode to introverts and dreamers
  • This rich story unfolds quietly but leaves a big impact
