Awkward, unsocial eleven-year-old Martin knows he's going to have a terrible summer with his weird great-aunt Lenore, who lives on a tiny island called Beyond. But nothing about Beyond is what Martin expects.

Eleven-year-old Martin can hardly imagine a worse summer. Martin's dad wants him to like "normal" boy things--playing sports and exploring the outdoors--so he sends Martin to his great-aunt Lenore, who lives on a tiny island called Beyond. Nothing about Beyond is what Martin expects, certainly not the strange, local boy who unexpectedly befriends Martin. Solo can canoe and climb trees and survive on his own in the wilderness, and Martin's drawn to him in a way he doesn't quite understand. But he's not sure he can trust Solo. In fact, can he trust anything about this strange island, where everyone seems to be keeping secrets?

A wonderfully told com...

A wonderfully told coming-of-age (mid-age, that is) tale. Martin is a one of those not-so-rambunctious boys who have a hard time fitting in. His way of dealing with it is to spend as much time as possible at home, retreating to a make-believe world of model towns, video games and imaginary friends. When his father decides it would be good for both of them if Martin were to spend a month in the wilds of Maine with an older, possibly demented relative (the father, not a stellar character, has an ulterior motive), the boy is forced out of his comfort zone and made to confront his loneliness and, for the first time, to find his own way in the wider world. Trapped on the island, he finds a way to make friends with the older relative (who is only pretending to be senile, in a delightful sub-plot), and also with a wild and very rambunctious island boy, and in the process finds strengths and resources he didn't know he had.
