What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Thirteen-year-old Neil MacLeod feels like a fish out of water: he’s trying to adjust to life in a new city, and his mother still refuses to tell him the truth about the father he’s never met. When he uncovers a shocking secret and the truth about his unconventional family sinks in, Neil decides to run away, all the way to his grandfather’s horse farm on the east coast. A sensitive and moving story about growing up, The Disappearing Boy teaches us that every family is different, and love is never as simple as it seems.
