The Cardturner by Louis Sachar (Yep – the same guy who wrote Holes) is a book about a boy who has a very wealthy great-uncle, Lester, or Trapp. His parents are always sucking up to his Uncle in hopes that he’ll leave some money for them in his will. So when his blind-with-age Uncle calls him up to drive him to his bridge games, the boy’s parents urge him to go. As it turns out, his Uncle needs him to tell him which cards he has and play the cards Trapp tells him to. As the story goes on, more is explained about bridge and it leads on to something other than just an old man and his great-nephew playing bridge.
