"A provocative and challenging parable about human instability."
"Gorgeously lyrical, as abetted by Aitken's translation, and dreadfully bleak."
From the Publisher
Editors Note In a translation of an award-winning Danish novel, despairing seventh grader Pierre-Anthon situates himself in a tree after concluding that life is meaningless, a situation that compels his classmates to prove life's worth by sacrificing increasingly personal objects at the base of the tree.
Editors Note 1 Nothing is the Lord of the Flies for the 21st century
Annotation After declaring that life is meaningless on the first day of seventh grade, Pierre Anthon leaves school and takes refuge in a plum tree. This sets in motion a series of increasingly disturbing actions as his classmates try to get him down with a growing pile of things that mean the most to them. Frequently compared to LORD OF THE FLIES, this Danish import is a 2011 Printz Honor Book.
