Ebb & Flow

(3) 4-6 After a "rotten bad year," which included becoming a bully and stealing from a friend's intellectually challenged uncle, eleven-year-old Jett is sent to the coast to stay with gentle, nonjudgmental Grandma Jo for the summer. In this quiet but affecting verse novel, Jett relates the year's heartwrenching events as he develops empathy and finally makes amends with the man he hurt.
