Katherine Paterson is one of our finest young people's authors. Don't look for happy solutions and easy to cope with stories. In this multiple award winning story about man's inhumanity to man the many facets are woven together into a story that will grab your attention and lead you into situations that are surprising but very much a part of the story. If you get it for your young person be sure to read it for yourself or you'll miss out on a reading treat. If I could give this book 6 stars I would.

Jip could not understand why no one had claimed him after he tumbled off a wagon on the West HIl Road when he was a small child. Brought to the town poor farm, Jip was content to tend the animals and do chores-until the day the lunatic arrived.. Put's rages in his padlocked wooden cage terrified the residents, but when the old man was lucid, he sang sweetly and let the boy take care of him.
