When fifteen-year-old Paul Shackleford is sent to live on a relative's isolated Virginia farm as punishment for lying and a lesson in character-building, his life is transformed. The unusual collection of people and a surly dog he meets there are still reeling from the death of a beloved farmhand, Hennley Gray. Soon Paul begins to hear talk about the presence of a ghost and then finds himself investigating the life and afterlife of the departed man, who seems to have a mysterious connection to Paul.In A Hole in the World, Sid Hite combines the rich Southern atmosphere of his Dither books with exquisite prose and a soulful story that will leave readers pondering long after the last page has been turned.
