Open iTunes to Buy


"How are we supposed to be partners? He can’t see the cards and I don’t know the rules!" The summer after junior year of high school looks bleak for Alton Richards. His girlfriend has dumped him to hook up with his best friend. He has no money and no job. His parents insist that he drive his great-uncle Lester to his bridge club four times a week and be his cardturner—whatever that means. Alton’s uncle is old, blind, very sick, and very rich. But Alton’s parents aren’t the only ones trying to worm their way into Lester Trapp’s good graces. They’re in competition with his longtime housekeeper, his alluring young nurse, and the crazy Castaneda family, who seem to have a mysterious influence over him. Alton soon finds himself intrigued by his uncle, by the game of bridge, and especially by the pretty and shy Toni Castaneda. As the summer goes on, he struggles to figure out what it all means, and ultimately to figure out the meaning of his own life.

Louis has done it again!! Another amazing book from Mr. Sachar. This book is about a high school boy who has to take his Uncle to a bridge studio. I skipped a few pages because I got bored with all the "bridge talk", but overall this book is one of my favorites!! I'm only 11 and I got m teacher and my bff to read it and they both love it!! Read it and you will love it!!
