Y/A CORNER ~ THE CARDTURNER!
A NOVEL ABOUT IMPERFECT PARTNERS AND INFINITE POSSIBILITIES
LOUIS SACHAR (author of the bestselling Y/A novel Holes)
The Cardturner is Sachar's first new book for four years and will be published in hardback in May 2010.
The novel tells the story of a 17-year-old boy who is asked to attend bridge games with his blind uncle. The apparently simple task involves the teenager in a "brilliantly plotted" tale in which deeply buried secrets rise to the surface.
"This delightful story of familial ambitions, ageing uncles, teenage boys and romance will delight Louis' many fans as a family secret that has laid hidden for decades is finally resolved."
