Charlie No Face

Front Cover
Savant Books and Publications, Jan 21, 2011 - Fiction - 270 pages
When eleven-year-old Jackie meets every kid's greatest nightmare -- disfigured hermit Charlie No Face -- his life is changed forever. Despite nagging questions about the death of his mother when he was an infant, the summer of 1959 is shaping up as the best vacation of Jackie's short life. He has friends, baseball, his father's unanticipated vacation from work, and the hunt for Charlie No Face to fill his days. But in a few short weeks, Jackie's life is turned upside down. He moves in with a distant relative whose shadowy boarder holds the key to Jackie's past and, perhaps, his future. Who is this man who won't go out in the light of day but who roams the woods at night? Could it be? Charlie No Face is a coming-of-age story in which a misunderstood recluse and a young boy redeem each other's lives through a most unlikely friendship.
