Parker Santé has seen “perfect sadness.” When his father died five years ago, Parker became mute. He is now drifting through life, spending time in hotels stealing from the rich rather than focusing on his future. Events take a dramatic turn when he meets the latest victim of his thievery, the beautiful, enigmatic Zelda, who claims to have been born in 1770. New York Times best-selling author Tommy Wallach, we’d like to say Thanks for the Trouble (Simon & Schuster, $17.99) and for this finely crafted, sardonic, but romantic tale that speaks to loss and the beauty of human connections. Ages 14-18.
