Description
From the author of A Tangle of Knots and Absolutely Almost , a touching story about a boy who won't let one tragic accident define him.

Everyone says that middle school is awful, but Trent knows nothing could be worse than the year he had in fifth grade, when a freak accident on Cedar Lake left one kid dead, and Trent with a brain full of terrible thoughts he can't get rid of. Trent's pretty positive the entire disaster was his fault, so for him middle school feels like a fresh start, a chance to prove to everyone that he's not the horrible screw-up they seem to think he is.

If only Trent could make that fresh start happen.

It isn't until Trent gets caught up in the whirlwind that is Fallon Little--the girl with the mysterious scar across her face--that things begin to change. Because fresh starts aren't always easy. Even in baseball, when a fly ball gets lost in the sun, you have to remember to shift your position to find it.

Advance praise for Lost in the Sun

* "Graff writes with stunning insight into boyhood and humanity, allowing Trent to speak for himself in a pained, honest narration. Investing Trent with all the tragic frailty of Holden Caulfield, Graff tackles issues of loss, isolation, and rage without apology. Graff consistently demonstrates why character-driven novels can live from generation to generation, and here she offers a story that can survive for many school years to come."-- Kirkus Reviews *STARRED*

"In Lost in the Sun , Trent decides that he will speak the truth: that pain and anger and loss are not the final words, that goodness can find us after all--even when we hide from it. This is a novel that speaks powerfully, honestly, almost shockingly about our human pain and our human redemption. This book will change you."--Gary Schmidt, two-time Newbery Honor-winning author of The Wednesday Wars and Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy

"Lisa Graff crafts a compelling story about a boy touched with tragedy and the world of people he cares about. And like all the best stories, it ends at a new beginning."--Richard Peck, Newbery Award-winning author of A Year Down Yonder and A Long Way From Chicago

Praise for Absolutely Almost

* "Albie comes through significant emotional hardship to a genuine sense of self-worth."-- School Library Journal *STARRED*

* "A perfect book to share with struggling readers."-- Booklist *STARRED*

* "Achingly superb, Albie's story shines."-- Kirkus Reviews *STARRED*

* "Graff's...gentle story invokes evergreen themes of coming to appreciate one's strengths (and weaknesses), and stands out for its thoughtful, moving portrait of a boy who learns to keep moving forward, taking on the world at his own speed."-- Publishers Weekly *STARRED*

Praise for A Tangle of Knots

" A] blithe magical puzzle."--Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal

"Lisa Graff has created a beautiful world of deliciously interconnected stories that draw you in."--Abby West, Entertainment Weekly A-]

* "Subtle and intricate, rich with humor and insight, this quietly magical adventure delights."-- Kirkus Reviews *STARRED*
