Nicole Stevens Time frame 2000-2010 maybe? I thought it might be A Painted House but it does not look familiar. The boy goes to live with his grandparents. (Can't remember if he was orphaned or if parents are there but more in background) Seems like there was something about a mysterious neighbor and another boy he befriends nearby that has more money than them (boy and grandparents are poor). There is a scene where the boy runs away in the middle of the night then has a moment of clarity and turns around and goes back. Something strange happens here though- he goes through something mystical or there is a threat to his life or something. That's all I can remember. Thanks for your help!

Here's the Google Books preview of A Painted House by John Grisham - https://books.google.com/books?id=Eua... There are different cover images.

Here's the Wikipedia summary (with Spoilers) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Paint...

Do you want to rule it out?

Nicole Stevens Yes, I've ruled it out. Thanks!

Nicole Stevens I figured it out! It was The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck! All of a sudden, I started thinking that it might be a Christmas book and started looking into it. Thank you. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with this post. I looked up directions, but I'm not sure.
