About this title

Synopsis:

Summer
Baseball
Car Baseball
Sock Ball
Wall Ball
The Time Tower: can you get older faster?
The speed of light: can it be measured?
A carp, washed up in the riberbank: what's inside?

Larry, Witt, and Rafferty have a whole summer to play all the different kinds of baseball, to build structures in the backyard, to find out what makes the world tick. "We've got to keep busy," says Witt. I want to know everything. Not just part."

Larry doesn't want to know what keeps him heading for Witt's backyard, rich with weeds and rotting appliances, whenever he's not at baseball practice. All he knows is that there's no one he'd rather be with than these two friends, that the chaos of Witt's universe offers refuge from his own orderly home and an entrance into a world of change, growth, and unpredictability. THE HOTEL EDEN author Ron Carlson's first novel for young readers is a heady immersion in the first moments of adolescence, when nothing is as it ever was before.

About the Author:

Ron Carlson grew up in Salt Lake City. He is the author of seven books of fiction, most recently At the Jim Bridger and The Hotel Eden, a New York Times Notable Book and Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year. He is a professor of English at Arizona State University. He plays infield, mainly second base, and bats right and throws right.
