I remember this book about a boy living in a steampunk-ish town with a wall of mist that nobody is allowed to go through. The boy finds that his guardian passes away and leaves him with this knowledge that pushes him to go across the mist with the mayor of the town's daughter. He finds this weird world and a dragon who lives in a hollow.

See the complete Country Boy series book list in order, box sets or omnibus editions, and companion titles.   I remember reading it in the early 00's, probably It's a series- the first book is about a boy who finds a weird book at a store/library that catches his attention and finds out that it is a magic book that introduces him to a whole new society. I think the book looked like something ordinary but had a peculiar detail.

Both books could have been spliced together, I think, so that the reader could experience the picture as a Reviews: INTRODUCTION. Originally published inand set in the s, A Boy’s Own Story is a masterful exploration of sexual identity, a coming-of-age novel equally remarkable for its sexual candor, acerbic social commentary, and gorgeous prose.

This much-praised first novel relates in vivid vernacular the intense inner life of Sam Marsdyke, a bright but disturbed rural adolescent, tracing his journey from oddball isolation to fully. Although Cutting for Stone was fiction, My Own Country is a memoir, focusing on the years when Verghese, born in Africa to Indian parents, is a young infectious diseases doctor in rural Eastern Tennessee, right at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic.

This book is like an version of "The Dangerous Book for Boys". It really gives insight into what boys did before television and video games.
