Publisher's Summary

One of the finest novelists of her generation, National Book Award nominee Lisa Graff returns listeners to the world of A Tangle of Knots, where a camp for Talented kids just might be a recipe for disaster.

In this magical companion to the National Book Award nominee A Tangle of Knots, it's summertime, and everyone is heading off to camp. For Talented kids, the place to be is Camp Atropos, where they can sing songs by the campfire, practice for the Talent show, and take some nice long dips in the lake. But what the kids don't know is that they've been gathered for a reason - one that the camp's director wants to keep hidden at all costs.

Meanwhile, a Talent jar that has been dropped to the bottom of the lake has sprung a leak, and strange things have begun to happen. Dozens of seemingly empty jars have been washing up on the shoreline, Talents have been swapped, and memories have been ripped from one camper's head and placed into another. And no one knows why.

With a camp full of kids, a lake full of magic, and a grown-up full of a secrets, A Clatter of Jars is story of summer, family, and the lengths to which we go to win back the people we love. Perfect for listeners who loved Katherine Paterson's The Great Gilly Hopkins or Louis Sachar's Holes.

What the Critics Say

"Graff is a master of the magical realism genre, and this offering is worthy of a spot in any middle grade collection." (School Library Journal)

"Graff's vivid character development and world building makes for tight plotting and nicely negotiable complexity. A great fit for fans of Louis Sachar's Holes." (Booklist)

    Such a wonderful listen! This is a magical story. I listened in the car with my kids - 7 and 10. A cross between Harry Potter and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
