Book Description: 
 
'Hatred combined with lies and secrets can break the world." Grandpa Zach used to say that before he died, but Stuey never really knew what he meant. It was kind of like how he used to talk about quantum physics, or how he used to say ghosts haunted the overgrown golf course. But then one day, when Stuey and his best friend, Elly Rose, are playing in the deadfall in the middle of the woods, something totally unbelievable happens. As Stuey and Elly Rose struggle to come to grips with their lives after that moment, all the things Grandpa Zach used to say started to make sense. This is a book about memory and loss and the destructive nature of secrets, but also about the way friendship, truth, and perseverance have the ability to knit a torn-apart world back together.-- Publisher's description.
