About this book
A truly original romance, coming of age and mystery novel from bestselling and award-winning author, Louis Sachar, his first since "Small Steps", and now available in paperback. When asked by his ageing, blind uncle to attend bridge games with him, he thinks it's better than his dead-end job, and his mother thinks it a good opportunity to secure their future inheritance. But, like all the apparently casual choices in any of Sachar's books, this soon turns out to be a lot more complex than Alton could ever have imagined.
A novel in which a 17-year-old boy, a rich blind uncle, an attractive girl and a mother who is looking forward to an inheritance create a heady and exciting cocktail of opportunity.
