Homer´s parents are a mystery. His father died when he was only two. And his mother refuses to talk about him. Or about anything important, really. Her response to questions is either silence, evasion, or sudden migraine headaches. So Homer´s given up asking. But on an unexpected trip to Maine, Homer finds himself, for the irst time, in a place where his father lived. In this one tiny coastal village, there must be millions of facts about his father he could gather up an sort through. Now Homer must face his biggest fear: Maybe there´s a reason his father is such a secret. Maybe there ar things Homer really doesn´t want to know. But with the help of a new funny, fearless friend, Homer finds the courage to search for the truth - to solve the mystery of his own life.

Noch ein Buch aus dem großen Bücherstapel, der im Zug von Göttingen nach Hannover bei der "BC-Deutschlandfahrt 2007" kreiste.

Schöne Grüße an die Mitreisenden und "Am-Rande-Begleiter", es war eine ganz tolle Fahrt!

It's unbelievable, this book rested almost one and a half year on my shelf, until I finally read it. Well, it was worth it, definitely. It might be a book for juniors, but I enjoyed it a lot, especially mix between the acting (and talking) persons.

Homer's life isn't easy at all, but his summer in Maine changes everything - and everyone. Shopgirl-NY152 is interested in reading it asap and then I'll hand it to friends - it would be a waste to release it wild.

I read Following Fake Man for the challenge to reduce the Mt TBR in february.

...steht nicht mehr im Regal, weil mir an einem stürmischen September-Tag im Watt'n Blick von Schlüttsiel das Cover ins Auge stach.

Ich werde es zu Ende lesen und nach einem geeigneten Platz suchen, an dem ich es "freilassen" kann.

I brought the book from Ockholm via Berlin to OBCZ Heidelberg and hope it will be caught by a traveller, who may treat it to a real journey. I look forward to reading about it. Have a safe trip, Homer!
