Item Description...
While living on a Vermont poor farm during 1855 and 1856, Jip learns his identity and that of his mother and comes to understand how he arrived at this place

Publishers Description
After tumbling off the back of a wagon, Jip was brought to live at the town poor farm. He has been content to do chores and tend animals -- until the day the lunatic arrives. Put seems terrifying and less than human, but as the weeks pass, Jip sees the man he truly is. So, when a menacing stranger comes to town, claiming to have been sent by Jip's grieving father, Jip turns to his new friend to make sense of his past. Jip is another triumph from Katherine Paterson -- and fans of her Lyddie are in for a special surprise. " Like Paterson's Newbery-winning Bridge to Terabithia and Jacob Have I Loved, this historically accurate story is full of revelations and surprise...The taut, extremely readable narrative and its tender depictions of friendship and loyalty provide first-rate entertainment."-- "Publishers Weekly," starred review " Maintains its riveting pace from the opening chapter to the final moment when the protagonist triumphs over adversity...Evokes the attitudes and social conditions of the times A1855-1856? in lucent prose."-- "The Horn Book," starred review

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Jip, a character who will make you cry  Jan 7, 2008
Jip, his story is a book for children and young adults. Again Katherine Paterson does her best to offer her readers a really touching story.
Jip, the cental character, is an orphan who suffers from the cruelty of all adults around him in his struggle to discover his real identity. His adventures, his metaphorical journey towards self - identification captures the reader from the very beginning.
It's a historically accurate story placed in Vermont, in the mid 19th century. It presents vividly this dark period of America, dealing with the major theme of slavery and man's quest for freedom.
Undoubtedly, it's a novel which not only entertains but also informs and makes people think ...
Jip his story about nothing  Mar 14, 2007
This book was lame. The only part I liked was when Sheldon got shot.The lunatic was not crazy. Why did Jip have to fall of a wagon? After a while it got a little better.I am never going to read this again .I can not relate to this story.Jip got adopted by his school teacher.That was real good for him.
Jip his story  Mar 14, 2007
This story is kinda confusing but it gets beter in the end. I don't like how Sheldon goes boom. He shoudn't die. I've only read 13 out of 19 chapters and i plan on finishing it but it can get very confusing at times. I hope Jip can find or find ourt about his mother. And i'll write another review when im done mabe but I just want to enjoy the book for now.
Ryan my story  Mar 14, 2007
This was lame.I only liked it when Sheldon got shot........actually that and the town drunk was the only excitement.Everyone knew this was the most predictable ever. You knew the teacher was going to adopt him as soon as the words "I like you" fell out his mouth.overall I didn't like this book.Thats why I didn't rate this book.
JIP  Mar 14, 2007
This book is pretty confusing. I read the first 5 chapters and it was kind of confusing i didnt get some of the words and they were talking 'Country Talk' which made it hard and wierd. I really didnt get the book.
