Lexile measure:

The deep bond between a boy and his grandfather may be the only thing that can save the old man's life when he suffers a heart attack. But first the boy must overcome his feelings of helplessness and guilt.

With the imaginative assistance of Dooley, the nephew of a local nurse who knows a mysterious ritual called "soul switching," the narrator discovers, in a reluctant flight to the farthest edges of faith, the miraculous and healing power of love.

In the best literary tradition of Truman Capote and Carson McCullers, award-winning novelist Bruce Brooks tells this spellbinding tale with a compassionate understanding of the capacity of children to transcend pain with amazing grace.
