Summary "In Scarper Lee's world, parents don't make children--children make parents. Scarper's father is his pride and joy, a wind-powered brass construction with a following sail. His mother is a Bakelite hairdryer. In this world, it rains knives and household appliances have souls. There are no birthdays--only deathdays. Scarper knows he has just three weeks to live. As his deathday approaches, he is forced from his routine and strikes out into the unknown--where friendships are tested and authority challenged"--Back cover.
