Lois Lowry

"Emotionally devastating and infinitely haunting." - Horn Book

Katy Thatcher is the bright daughter of the town doctor. She is fascinated by her father's work and wants to be a doctor too. Perhaps it is her insatiable curiosity, or simply the charm of Jacob's gentleness with animals, that fuels their friendship. Although Jacob never speaks to her or even looks at her directly, Katy grows to understand him. She perceives meaning in the sounds he makes and purpose behind his movements. So when events take an unexpected and tragic turn, Katy alone can unravel the mystery of what has occurred, and why. This edition showcases an all new cover!
