Toby Wilson is having the toughest summer of his life. It's the summer his mother leaves for good; the summer his best friend's brother returns from Vietnam in a coffin; and the summer that Zachary Beaver, the fattest boy in the world, arrives in their sleepy Texas town. There are heartaches, friendships gained, and old friendships renewed. And it's Zachary Beaver who turns the town of Antler upside down and leaves everyone, especially Toby, changed forever.
“As in her first novel, My Louisiana Sky, Holt humanizes the outsider without sentimentality. . . . Holt reveals the freak in all of us, and the power of redemption.”
“In her down-to-earth, people-smart way, Holt offers a gift.”
–The Horn Book Magazine, Starred
