Product Description:

Palmer LaRue is running out of birthdays. For as long as he can remember, he's dreaded the day he turns ten - the day he'll take his place beside all the other ten-year-old boys in town, the day he'll be a wringer.

But Palmer doesn't want to be a wringer. It's one of the first things he learned about himself - and it's one of the biggest things he has to hide. In Palmer's town, being a wringer is an honor - a tradition passed down from father to son. Palmer can't stop himself from being a wringer, just like he can't stop himself from growing one year older, just like he can't stand up to a whole town - right?

Newbery Medal winner Jerry Spinelli's most powerful novel yet is a gripping tale of how one boy learns how not to be afraid.

For ages 8 to 12.
