Summary
Carter Jones is astonished early one morning when he finds a real English butler, bowler hat and all, on the doorstep-one who stays to help the Jones family, which is a little bit broken. His name is August Paul Bowles-Fitzpatrick. He previously served Carter<U+2019>s grandfather and had attended to Carter<U+2019>s father<U+2019>s upbringing. Now, The Butler brings news that Carter<U+2019>s grandfather has died and has left an endowment that will provide for The Butler to come serve Carter<U+2019>s family, while Carter's father is stationed in Germany. In addition to figuring out middle school, Carter has to adjust to the unwelcome presence of this new know-it-all adult in his life and navigate the butler's notions of decorum, including setting up a cricket team at the middle school. And ultimately, when his burden of grief and anger from the past can no longer be ignored, Carter learns that a burden becomes lighter when it is shared. Sparkling with humor, this insightful and compassionate story will resonate with readers who have confronted secrets of their own
