9781599554075: The Hoarders

When nine-year-old Cheyenne Walker and his younger brother lose the mother they love and the aunt they trust, they go underground to survive. But they've spent years on the edge already and they've developed some skills. They know what kinds of foods will take them the furthest, what kind of people to avoid (Grey Tooth), and how to watch adults to get the clues as to which ones will help them. What they have yet to work out is whether Dead Uncle Dick is a good ghost or a bad one, and if the monstrous-looking lady in the hospital bed is really someone they love. The brothers' story is an adventure and a mystery with a sprinkling of kid jokes.(BTW, The Hoarders is NOT about people with messy houses like the TV show.)

From the Author:

A Song for Every BookAfter living with my characters for so many months, I begin to hear the songs they sing.  I've written each song with vocal lyrics and piano accompaniment for you to enjoy.  Just go to SheetMusicPlus.com to download your copy of Cheyenne & Joaquin's rap song, "My Joke About a Worm." If you've tried performing the music, please tell me all about it. I'd love to hear from you.

From the Back Cover:

For Cheyenne and Joaquin, two brothers who are expert hoarders, the future has always been uncertain.  That's why it's important to keep a food hoard.  After all, you never know when Momma might forget about eating for a few days.  But as things get more and more desperate, the boys realize they'll have to rely on each other and the lessons they've learned together to get them through.

This captivating coming-of-age novel is vibrant, alarming, and yet full of joy.  With characters who are as true to life as they are heartbreaking, this is one book that will stick in your mind and make you appreciate something as simple as a meal at a table, with forks, knives, and plates.  Like a hug that's a little too tight, this story is unforgettable--a potent mix of enduring themes and quietly brilliant writing that's sure to become an instant classic.
