The Birthday Room
Benjamin Hunter receives two things for his twelfth birthday: a room and a letter. The room -- an artist's studio -- is a gift from his parents. The letter comes from his Uncle Ian, whom Ben hasn't seen since he was two, and whom his parents never discuss. Ian's letter sets in motion a chain of events that change Ben's family in unexpected ways. Once again, Kevin Henkes turns his sympathetic, acute eye on a boy and his family and creates a quietly unforgettable story.
