Synopsis:

When his father shoots himself and ends up blind, Nate ChanceÆs world is thrown into a tailspin as the members of his family retreat from reality, but not wanting to become the tragedyÆs next victim, Nate sets his sights on winning the science fair by building the cloud chamber that he and his father had planned to do before everything went wrong.


Review:

"Maynard's narrative style is smooth and natural, and her characterization of Nate as an adolescent caught in a social vacuum...is apt. Readers drawn to quiet, complex character stories will appreciate this emotionally true offering."

Kirkus, 05/15/2005

Review:

"The author's poignant third-person narrative...offers an intimate rendering of emotional anguish and a subtly conveyed meditation on survival and forgiveness."

Publishers Weekly, 07/27/2005
