From the Publisher
Annotation Eleven-year-old Journey and his sister, Cat, attempt to deal with their mother's abandonment. Left with their grandparents, the duo finds different ways to deal with their grief--Cat by working in the farm's garden, Journey by trying to place blame--especially on his grandfather.
Editors Note Journey is eleven the summer his mother leaves him and his sister, Cat, with their grandparents. He is sad and angry, and spends the summer looking for the clues that will explain why she left.Journey searches photographs for answers. He hunts family resemblances in Grandmas albums. Looking for happier times, he tries to put together the torn pieces of the pictures his mother shredded before her departure. And he also searches the photographs his grandfather takes as the older man attempts to provide Journey with a past. In the process, the boy learns to look and finds that, for him, the camera is a means of finding things his naked eye has missed--things like inevitability of his mother's departure and the love that still binds his family.
Editors Note 2 Journey is eleven when his mother leaves him and his sister with their grandparents. Angrily questioning, he searches for clues to explain why she left, while his grandfather's photography teaches him things his naked eye has missed in this extraordinary, emotionally charged novel from a Newbery Medal-winning author.
