Jack Henry, the hero ofHeads or Tails: Stories from Sixth Grade, is back. It is the summer after sixth grade and Jack and his offbeat family have relocated to Barbados. But even in a tropical paradise, Jack is plagued by misadventure. He gets a violent case of blood poisoning (after chasing a headless chicken), discovers the perils of male bonding (in a pepper-eating contest with his father), and has his heartstrings twanged by an older woman (his sister's best friend)--to name just a few of his trials and tribulations in these eight fierce and funny stories.
