The Boy on the Bus by Deborah Schupack
In The Boy on the Bus, Meg Landry's 8-year old son, Charlie, is clingy and asthmatic, and she's often found herself wishing at times that he was different. Then one April day the school bus comes and the boy on the bus looks like Charlie, but Meg isn't certain it really is him. Her absentee husband, the local sheriff, and townspeople all threaten the status quo within her family as Meg tries to come to grips with this psychological mystery. Deborah Schupack tackles the themes of family and parenthood in The Boy on the Bus. The Christian Science Monitor says, "Meg's peculiar situation resonates with deep, universal tones in this carefully constructed novel. Schupack has wisely kept her story short and avoided any easy resolutions, but her cool, poetic voice offers a steady flow of startling observations about marriage and parenthood - and those most temporary beings of all: children."
