Jasper Jones

Winner of the Australian Book Industry Award 2010, the Australian Booksellers Choice Award 2010 and the Australian Independent Booksellers 2009. Nominated for the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis 2013, category Jugendbuch

A 2012 Michael L. Printz Honor Book
Charlie Bucktin, a bookish thirteen year old, is startled one summer night by an urgent knock on his bedroom window. His visitor is Jasper Jones, an outcast in their small mining town, and he has come to ask for Charlie's help. Terribly afraid but desperate to impress, Charlie follows him into the night.
Jasper takes him to his secret glade, where Charlie witnesses Jasper's horrible discovery. With his secret like a brick in his belly, Charlie is pushed and pulled by a town closing in on itself in fear and suspicion. He locks horns with his tempestuous mother, falls nervously in love, and battles to keep a lid on his zealous best friend. In the simmering summer where everything changes, Charlie learns why the truth of things is so hard to know, and even harder to hold in his heart.
From the Hardcover edition.
Rezension
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews , March 15, 2011 :
"The author's keen ear for dialogue is evident in the humorous verbal sparring between Charlie and Jeffrey, typical of smart 13-year-old boys...A richly rewarding exploration of truth and lies by a masterful storyteller."
Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books , April 2011:
"Silvey's sure-footed, evocative prose, intelligent humor, and careful plot structuring may well ensure this Aussie import lasting status."
Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine , May/June 2011:
"The mood and atmosphere of the 1960s small-town Australian setting is perfectly realized-suspenseful, menacing, and claustrophobic-with issues of race and class boiling just below the surface."
Starred Review, School Library Journal , June 2011:
"Silvey is a master of wit and words, spinning a coming-of-age tale told through the mind of a young Holden Caulfield."
From the Hardcover edition.
