The Moon Over High Street (Hardcover)
Mr. Boulderwall, a millionaire, has big plans for orphan Joe’s future, but Joe has dreams of his own. (9-12)
— From Coming of Age
Joe Casimir needed help with the 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. Well, 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. There are a lot of good things just waiting. You'll see.
