Preview of Onion John Summary:

Exciting, suspenseful, and humorous, Onion John tells the story of a twelveyear-old boy, Andy Rusch, Jr., his father, and his adult friend Onion John.

In exploring the development of Andy's relationship with his father, the novel develops themes of the awakening of self-awareness, and of the need to accept persons with very different perceptions and opinions about life. The events in the book are realistic and believable, and the characters' actions and thoughts draw the reader directly into the plot, making the conflict come alive as a universal issue facing all youth.
