Y/A CORNER ~ THE CARDTURNER!

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."

  1. AS you have read The Cardturner, could you please give some assistance. He is slated to be in our area and our independent book store, University Book Store would like to have him present to our area schools. Would any of the content be inappropriate for a middle school level audience- 6th-8th grades?

  2. The book is quite layered, but I'm fairly conservative and don't think there is anything inappropriate for a middle school audience. I was fairly picky about what my son read when he was that age, but I wouldn't have had a problem letting him read anything by this author.
