Description

Life for 12-year-old Ked Eakins isn't easy. The school bully is after him, a lump on his back has made him a social outcast, and his last remaining friend recently abandoned him. And then his dad gambles away their rent money.

Though it seems like he should just give up, Ked determines it's time to take his life back. He hatches a scheme to make enough money to save their home, but the plan is risky, and what seemed like a good idea quickly lands him in deeper trouble.

Ked has his determination and creativity, however, and the school's Maker Space provides him with a place to build. Can Ked and the other Makers save his family from going under?

This contemporary underdog tale about a unique middle schooler is Michael Northrop at his gritty, gripping, unflinching best. It is a powerful portrait of a failing factory town and the families who are being dragged down with it. Ultimately, On Thin Ice is about daring to create when your whole world is crumbling.
