The new novel by Natalie Babbitt, author of Tuck Everlasting

Joe Casimir needed help with the choice he had to make. But how do you choose the person who will help you choose? Mr. Boulderwall, the millionaire, knew exactly what he wanted Joe to choose. And millionaires are experts at making choices. Well, aren't they? But Vinnie, the number-two man down at Sope Electric, didn't much approve of millionaires. He said to Joe, "Listen, kid, all of 'em act like they're the only ones with a ticket to the show!" But he didn't have any real advice to offer. Joe's Gran didn't either, as it turned out, and neither did Aunt Myra.

The good advice was there, though. Right across the street. Just waiting right across the street. There are a lot of good things just waiting. You'll see.

Joe Casimir has lived with his grandmother in northern Ohio since his parents were killed when he was a baby. Now his grandmother has broken her hip and he is sent to “Aunt” Myra in the southern part of the state until the hip has mended. When a neighbour’s dog escapes into Mr. Boulderwall’s garden, Joe comes to the attention of the old millionaire who believes that Joe has Polish roots as he does himself and he decides that he will take control of Joe’s life. Joe must decide who he should please – himself or others. This is an interesting dilemma with a satisfactory conclusion. Reviewed by BPL volunteer EE.
