This booked did not leave me with a satisfied feeling. I think that it was also somewhat unrealistic, and not a great read.

Honestly, cannot picture a contemporary child enjoying this book. It is not likely that I would recommend the book to a child.
A boy has a friendship with a man in town whom no one else can understand. It is never clear if the individual has a learning disablity, or what the issue is. Onion John, or so he is called by the towns people has unusual "cures" for problems which involve odd actions like parading through town with burning cedar shrubs and tossing a coat in the river to bring rain. Eventually, the main character, Andy, has to come to terms with his feelings for the future and not let his father dictate plans for his life.
