What if the football hadnít gone over the wall. On the other side of the wall there is a dark secret. And the devil. And the Moon Man. And the Motherland doesnít want anyone to know. But Standish Treadwell ó who has different-colored eyes, who canít read, canít write, Standish Treadwell isnít bright ó sees things differently than the rest of the ďtrain-track thinkers.Ē So when Standish and his only friend and neighbor, Hector, make their way to the other side of the wall, they see what the Motherland has been hiding. And itís big...One hundred very short chapters, told in an utterly original first-person voice, propel readers through a narrative that is by turns gripping and darkly humorous, bleak and chilling, tender and transporting.
