In 1980 s Pittsburgh, Jonathan Schwartz's carefree life is under assault. His sisters seem intent on doing him irreparable psychological harm. There's Nadia, with her schemes, and Olivia, tease and temptress, whose beauty wreaks havoc among his friends. When his father, the acclaimed writer, is accused of stealing the books that made him famous, Jon's family implodes once and for all, and he must set off in search of what has been lost. His is a journey that ultimately requires him to find more than answers. It requires him to find himself.
This book is ancient, ravaged and full of utter nonsense. But the moment it enters Daphna and Dexter's lives, bizarre things begin to happen. Why is their father, who found the book, suddenly so distant? Is the old man who took it form his some kind of hypnotist? Why is a giant, red-eyed by menacing them? And what does their thirteenth birthday have to do with all this? Daphna and Dexter can't stand each other, but they'll have to work together to learn the truth about the Book of Nonsense—before their lives come apart completely.
Jeremy knows all about what it's like to be the new kid, and this time he's ready to do whatever it takes to fit in. But sometimes you can be popular for the wrong reasons.
Will Jeremy come through before he makes a real mess of things?
