Product description

Joseph is fresh out of juvie, looking for his baby daughter, Jupiter. In a galaxy of countless stars and fates, can a broken boy find a new start? It’s probably a teensy understatement to say that Joseph is troubled. He was locked up for trying to kill a teacher. Or so the rumours say. Now he’s come to live with twelve-year-old Jack and his family on their wintry Maine farm. It doesn’t take Jack long to figure out that Joseph isn’t as black as he’s painted. (The cows adore him, for a start.) But he needs something Jack’s family can’t give him: his tiny daughter… A glorious story full of wondrous description: red barns, green shutters, pale snow and all the colours of the heart.
