Garvey feels he isn’t the son his Father wanted. His father wants him to excel in sports but Garvey isn’t good at sports. Garvey likes science fiction, astronomy, and reading. He also likes music and singing. A new friend encourages him to join the school chorus and Garvey gets to sing a solo. This novel is written in Tanka, an ancient poetry form which consists of five lines. The poetry style captures the many moods, feelings, and music of Garvey’s world. Get to know Garvey by reading “Garvey’s Choice” and hear the music of his story for yourself. (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Award nominee, 2018)
