New York : Dell, 1988.
IL 5-8 RL 7.6
Newton was surviving junior high in Madison, Wisconsin. Just when he started
having things figured out -- which drinking fountain was gummed up-- and
when a cute girl had started to notice him, his Dad moves them to a small
house in the woods. That summer, Will discovered Sucker Lake and the girl
next door. At first guilty about spending so much time on the island, Will
settled in to roughing it with the help of his new friend Susan. Will starts
putting the pieces together in his own life as he starts to pay attention
to what his core is telling him from inside -- not what seems expected
by his parents.
