A Really Weird Summer
Margaret K. McElderry Books' description: They never discussed the divorce, the Anderson children. Twelve-year-old Nels, the oldest, knew it was on Stevie's mind, but he wondered if Jenny and Rory, the two youngest, even grasped what was going on while the four of them put in the
lonesome days at the strange old Inn that was
home to their great-aunt and uncle. It was exile to them, with no friends, no swimming, no parentsnot even yelling, fighting parents. Maybe never two parents again, Nels kept thinking. Then one morning he discovered a long-unused
room, glimpsed a mysterious image in a mirror, and found his way into a secret world so secure
and happy that the miserable real world Stevie
and the others still lived in faded around him. But surely his secret world was real, too? And Alan, his mischievous, puzzling new friend? "What do I mean by 'real'?" Nels finally asked
himself desperatelyand there came a day of terror when he was driven to find the answer.
This sensitively told story of a boy's flight
from reality under severe stress is distinguished
by its remarkable understanding of children, its skillful characterization and its unusual approach
to the contemporary scene.
