One day, you pass strangers by and think, I used to hang out with them.

Set 5 years after Saving Francesca, this book tells the story of Thomas Finch-Mackee, or just Tom (like in that nursery rhyme, Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son). After his uncle Joe died, Tom's family, and life, started to fall apart.

In this extremely heartbreaking novel, Marchetta narrates how a broken down young man slowly puts his life back together, piece by piece, and how a pregnant woman tries to cope with all the troubles that threatens to swallow her.

The Piper's Son is a beautifully devastating book that people can surely relate to. description
