What Do Fish Have to Do with Anything? : And Other Stories
by Avi




Overview -
In this masterful collection, Newbery Award winner Avi charts the turning points in the lives of seven young protagonists.

In the overlapping years when childhood and adolescence blend and shift like waves and sand, nothing is certain and everything is changing. In this extraordinary collection of stories, Avi, one of the most innovative authors writing for young people today, charts the turning points in the lives of seven protagonists in their restless middle years. Here you will meet, among others, the subject of the title story, who wonders why he shouldn't ask questions that have no answers -- is it because he might discover the truth? You'll also encounter a "bad" minister's son who is dared to be good, and a chilling tale of a girl who is haunted by the ghosts of her cats. Always with a surprise built in, an angle unseen, these are stories that step just beyond the edge of the everyday.
