From the library catalog record:
Garth Nix is the author of one of my favorite fantasy series, the Abhorsen set.
Picture a high school student named “The Tao,” adopted at around the age of 5 by very loving parents named Jones. You can imagine the remarks when he went to school and announced his name was “The Tao Jones.” After a lot of anger therapy as a result of being abused and abandoned by his birth mother, he matured into a great kid who goes by TJ. He’s witty, incisive, self-aware – a great athlete and very well-adjusted.
