The Seventh Most Important Thing by Shelley Pearsall
Oh so much wowness! When 13 year old Arthur, whose father recently passed away, threw a brick at the neighborhood junk man for wearing his father's hat and was sent to reform school, he had no idea that the junk man would be his source of redemption. Sentenced to help the junk man as his probation, Arthur learns that St. James, as he referred to himself was collecting junk - foil, cardboard, light bulbs and other items to create a work of art. That work of art is real and is shown at the end of the book and is rather amazing in and of itself. I loved the story and the real life historical trash to treasure artwork tie-in. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
