This book is perfect for teens and pre-teens in Appalachia. I used this book for a 6th grade elective class called Appalachian Authors, and the kids LOVED it. They actually wanted to know if there was a sequel. This is truly a heart felt story about hard work, second chances, and choosing the right path. Readers will fall in love with the characters and the animals in this book. It is an eye opener for young readers, and a great story for all ages. This book is a perfect ten!
