A Newbery Honor Book and Winner of the Christopher Award: A young boy fires a forbidden rifle—and must face the consequences.
Ned Wallis’s minister father made him promise not to touch the rifle until he turns fourteen. But the eleven-year-old can’t resist sneaking outside and trying it out, just once. Ned takes aim, and fires—just as a dark shadow passes in front of him. When he looks up, a flickering face passes across the attic window. Someone was watching.
When a feral cat appears outside the house of an elderly neighbor, with dried blood on its matted fur and a missing eye, Ned begins to wonder: Could he have shot this animal that night? Full of guilt and terrified that his secret will come out, Ned starts caring for the one-eyed cat. But will he be able to come clean about his broken promise and the shot in the dark?
Spring brings the chance for redemption and a surprising revelation from an unexpected source in this New York Times Outstanding Children’s Book of the Year.
