About this title
Warsaw Junction has a lot of secrets. Who could guess that Augie Knapp has collected most of them in an old suitcase? No one, until Lydie Rose Meisenheimer blows into town and signs up for sixth grade. Driving a broken-down convertible, wearing a black straw hat, and proclaiming herself Augie's new best friend, she turns his days into embarrassing nightmares. But she also fills his nights with bright-shining visions of Gypsies -- Gypsies who could make Augie's dreams come true . . . if only he'd dare to dream a little harder.
This title is included only in Juvenile 10.About the Author:
Stephen Roos was born in New York and grew up in New Canaan, Connecticut. He attended Loomis School and graduated from Yale. After a career in publishing, he turned to writing. His first novel, My Horrible Secret, was published in 1983. Since then, he has written nearly two dozen other books for children, including Twelve-Year-Old Vows Revenge, Confessions of a Wayward Preppie, and You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone. Stephen Roos now lives in New York City.
About The Gypsies Never Came, he writes: "For most of my writing, I have drawn on the lighter, goofier sides of my childhood. When I came to write The Gypsies Never Came, I knew it was time to turn to a side that I had always shied away from. Like Augie, I was born with a physical handicap. Lucky for me, I fell in with Gypsies. They weren't Augie's Gypsies. My Gypsies made music and acted and did all sorts of wonderful things. They included me. They taught me. They became my home."
