Wringer, Paperback


Palmer LaRue is running out of birthdays. For as long as he can remember, he's dreaded the day he turns ten, the day he's supposed to become a wringer.

In Palmer's hometown of Waymer, a boy's tenth birthday is the biggest event of his life.

It marks the day that he is ready to take his place as a wringer at the annual family fest, Pigeon Day.

It's an honour and a tradition. But even though he would rather stay nine for the rest of his life than become a wringer, Palmer can't stop himself from getting older.

Then an unwanted visitor arrives on his windowsill, and Palmer knows that it is a sign.

Somehow, he must find a way to break tradition. He must learn how to stop being afraid, and stand up for what he believes in.
