Description

A tale of acceptance from the bestselling author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
 
Barnaby Brocket is an ordinary eight-year-old boy in most ways, but he was born different in one important way: he floats. His parents, who have a horror of being noticed, want desperately for Barnaby to be normal, but he can’t help who he is. And when the unthinkable happens, Barnaby finds himself on a journey that takes him all over the world. From Brazil to New York, Canada to Ireland, and even into space, the floating boy meets all sorts of different people—and discovers who he really is along the way.
 
This whimsical novel will delight middle graders, and make readers of all ages question the meaning of “normal.”
