How much do you have to give up to find yourself? When Pete first sets eyes on the Man, he's convinced he's an ax murderer. But at the revival meeting, Pete discovers that the Man is actually a savior of souls, and Pete has been waiting all his life to be saved. It's not something Pete's parents can understand. Certainly his best friend, Rufus, an avowed atheist, doesn't understand. But Pete knows he can't imagine life without the Man. So when the Man invites Pete to join him on his mission, how can Pete say no-even if it means leaving behind everything he's ever loved?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Powerful.” New York Times Book Review 
“Poignant and perceptive.” Booklist (starred review)
“Her characters are adults and teenagers who are neither good nor bad, but richly, heartbreakingly human.” Publishers Weekly
“Few books have explored young people's fascination with God and their soul. Rylant's subtle telling has a hymn-like quality, sung in a melodic, soulful way which reverberates within the reader's compassion.” School Library Journal
“Simply but beautifully written…a tale with enough suspense to hold readers till the end.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
