JOEL WILL SOON be 12, and he thinks nothing is going on in the small community where he lives. But hes wrong. One day, an incident that could easily have been a catastrophe turns into a miracle. Now Joel believes he owes the world a good deed, to prove that he deserved what might have been divine intervention. He thinks up an elaborate scheme, but it doesnt go as anticipated. Even though his heart is in the right place, feelings are hurt. If he confesses what hes done and why, will things be put right again? Readers who met Joel Gustafson, his father, and their friends inA Bridge to the Starswill follow, with appreciation, Henning Mankells shrewd depiction, in this companion novel, of the surprising changes in Joels existence. Mankell deftly explores Joels self-discovery, his realization that lives can be altered in a single moment, and his new understanding that a choice between telling the truth and keeping silent can make all the difference.
