"This is a story about William Noone, troublemaker, who suddenly decides to leave town at the age of thirteen with two girls from school named Ace and Worm. They are going to give up their "education" and look for William's father, who just drove off one night in a battered old Hudson and never came back. William tells the reasons for their quest in a flow of memory, anger and fantasy. The adults in his small town want to keep William in one world and he wishes to live in another. Their world is dull, homely teachers, fake talk about love and duty, weird rules like keep off the grass and lead a sensible live. William's world is the darkness of a movie theater, a winter night full of roses, a white butterfly with sad and sleepy eyes: the happy anarchy of all our child-hoods. "; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
