Cooper Jewett never knew his real parents. His grandparents, who raised him, have both passed away. Now, Cooper has no one, not even a dog to keep him company. All he wants is to keep their New Hampshire dairy farm going.
     All of a sudden, strange and inexplicable things begin to happen. Someone is trying to sabotage the farm, and a challenger to the incumbent president is pressuring Cooper to campaign with him. Who exactly is Cooper Jewett, and what does the government want with him?

“This fast-paced and suspenseful story by Newbery and Printz Award winner Gary Schmidt, set on a New Hampshire dairy farm, creates both a bucolic rural existence and scenes of political greed and ambition . . . the novel is reminiscent of Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Ryder stories and will find a delighted audience of young listeners who like adventure as well as happy endings brought about by hard work and good intentions.”—School Library Journal

“Political intrigue meets small-town New Hampshire in this story of identity, perseverance and love.”—Publishers Weekly

“Political intrigue comes to rural New Hampshire in this quiet thriller. Readers will root for this appealing protagonist.”—The Horn Book Magazine

“It is a timely novel of coming-of-age into a society increasingly divided along cultural lines.”—Voices of Youth Advocates
 
“Cooper’s grief, solitude, and loneliness are poignantly and realistically drawn, and secondary characters add humor to this fast-paced tale.”—School Library Journal

“. . . the political machinations are fun. Best of all, though, are the realistic portrayal of a young teen alone, the unsentimental details of his work, the lyrical sense of the place he loves, and, above all, the meaning of family.”—Booklist

“. . . an outrageous adventure story and a moving tale of self-discovery.”—Grand Rapids Press

“This quick paced mystery thriller will keep readers turning the pages.”—Palmetto Parent
