Read full description of the books ... und dann kam Joselle:Ten year old shy, red-haired Blaze Werla is hurting. Losing his mother to cancer has a profound impact on him. Added to the trama is the fact that he was badly burned and scared from a freak carnival accident.
Each year he returns to the ferris wheel hoping he can have the courage to overcome his fears, and each year he fails.
He has a strong support base of a loving father and grandmother, but still his imaginary friends are the ones to whom he turns.
When Joselle Stark arrives in the neighborhood, his life is turned upside down and he struggles to share and develop a relationship with a real life friend.
Abandoned by her near do well mother and dumped at her grandmother's house, Joselle is not exactly the best choice for a trustful friend.
A liar, cheat and sneak by nature, Joselle's insecurities prompt her to harm anyone who tries to befriend her.
