Gary D. Schmidt

Dear Reader:

Not all quests are about swords and mythical lands and mystical rings. Some are right at home, and when Doug Swieteck—beat up, alone with a broken family—comes upon a beautiful book whose pictures are being sold one by one, he decides that he and he alone will try to bring back all those pages. He will make one thing in his life whole and perfect.

And maybe he will. But there's a whole lot more that needs to be brought back, and his quest is going to be a lot harder and stranger than he had imagined. He's in a new school, in a new town, and the wars at home and abroad will reach close, very close.

A year has passed since The Wednesday Wars, and now it's Doug's turn. He's got a lot to face, and he'll need some companions along the way.

You're invited.
