Benjamin Hunter gets two things for his 12th birthday: a freshly renovated room in the attic and a letter from his uncle, Ian, whom he hasn't seen in ten years. It's an invitation to visit, and Ben has an unexplainable urge to see this man who's been estranged from the family for so long.
From the Publisher:

"Two of the things Benjamin Hunter received for his twelfth birthday took him completely by surprise: A room and a letter. The room was from his parents. The letter was from his uncle."

Ben was just two years old when he and his uncle, Ian, were last together, so Ben didn't remember him. And no one in Ben's family ever talked about the man. Thenthe letter arrived, changing Ben's life, and changing his family in unexpected ways. And there was the birthday room...

Annotation:

The second is a letter from his Uncle Ian, a man whose been out of contact with the family for 10 years. Uncle Ian's letter invites Benjamin to come and visit him and Benjamin really wants to go--but will his mother be able to get past her own feelings about Ian and let Benjamin visit with his uncle?
