When Alton’s blind, elderly uncle requests his company at his bridge club, Alton agrees. After all, it’s better than a summer job in the shopping mall, and Alton’s mother thinks it might secure them a good inheritance in the future. Yet Alton has no idea what a heady cocktail of romance, glitz and mystery he is about to uncork! Because, like all apparently casual choices in Louis Sachar’s wonderful books, this choice turns out to lead to all kinds of unexpected places. As his relationship with his uncle grows, and he meets the very attractive Toni, deeply buried secrets are uncovered… and a romance that spans decades is finally brought to a close. Telling a gripping tale of friendship, luck and destiny, this is another cracker from the superbly talented author of Holes.
