Description: Eighty-year-old George Castor promised he would never let his best friend Ralph die alone at the Silver Gardens Nursing Home--but Ralph passed on while George was away fishing. Distraught, guilt-stricken and seeking redemption, George buys a broken-down mansion in Looking glass, Oregon, paints it fire-engine red, and begins searching for other old folks to share it with him. Because George has made a new promise that will alter the course of the rest of his life. And, with the help of a miraculous old woman named Grace, he assembles a ragtag bunch of aging strangers, determined to make their last days on earth--and his own--an adventure.

One of five siblings, Gregg Kleiner grew up in rural Oregon splashing in creeks and climbing trees, milking goats, and playing the French Horn. At age 16, he spent a year as an AFS exchange student in the mountains of northern Thailand, where he lived in a Buddhist monastery for a month. Although he didn't wear a lot of pink as a boy, the color has grown on him, and he hopes we might all wake up tomorrow and see the particular shade of pink featured in this book - his first for children (and their adults). His novel for adults, Where River Turns to Sky, was a finalist for both the Paterson Fiction Prize and the Oregon Book Award, and was optioned for a feature film by Fox Searchlight.
