A novel by

 
 
James is a championship diver, with a shot for the Olympics. But where did his talent really come from? His adoptive parents cannot tell him--so, after years of unanswered questions, he does the unthinkable. He breaks training, and runs off to the farmland of his birth, with nothing but a mysterious stone shaped like a snake. Can he use it to unlock his past? An important book for anyone who has wondered about the emotions surrounding issues of adoption. --School Library Journal, starred review
