The Moon Over High Street

Joe Casimir needed some help with a tough choice he had to make. But how do you choose the person who will help you choose? Mr Boulderwall, the millionaire, knew exactly what he wanted Joe to choose. And millionaires are experts at making choices, aren’t they? But Vinnie, the number-two man down at Sope Electric, didn’t much approve of millionaires. He said to Joe, “Listen, kid, all of ‘em act like they’re the only ones with a ticket to the show!” But he didn’t have any real advice to offer. Joe’s Gran didn’t either, as it turned out, and neither did Aunt Myra. The good advice was there, though. Right across the street. Just waiting right across the street…

Chance encounters, distant relatives and secrets on the high street combine to weave together an engrossing mystery in this new novel from the author of Tuck Everlasting.
