Summary (From the publisher):

John Egan is a misfit ó a twelve-year-old in the body of a grown man with the voice of a giant ó who diligently keeps track of the lies large and small that are told to him. Johnís been able to detect lies for as long as he can remember; itís a source of power but also great consternation for someone so young. With an obsession for the Guinness Book of World Records, a keenly inquisitive mind, and a kind of faith, John remains hopeful despite the unfavorable cards life deals him. John is like a tuning fork, sensitive to the vibrations within himself and the trouble that this creates for him and his family, and when his sanity reaches near collapse, a frightening family catastrophe threatens to destroy them.
