After Sylvia

(2004)
(The second book in the Owen Skye series)
A novel by

 
After Sylvia follows Owen Skye when his true love, Sylvia Tull, moves away. Heartbroken, Owen does his best to get over Sylvia by going from one adventure to another: he adopts a slobbering, bouncy, rock-obsessed hound named Sylvester, runs for class president, and joins his brothers in taking revenge against bossy cousin Eleanor. He even tries learning some new life skills, such as getting Horace to show him how to make the perfect fried egg, or asking Uncle Lorne to demonstrate his famous loon call. Gradually Owen's memory of Sylvia begins to fade. As the new school year unfolds, the magic of the Skye brothers' antic adventures is replaced with a different sort of magic - the magic of stillness that inspires clarity and insight. Owen is growing up, but happily for young readers, he never loses his most endearing qualities - his sweet vulnerability, his impulsive courage, and his gigantic imagination.
