Overall this was a good book - a quick read with good characters and plenty of plot to keep things interesting. I wanted to believe that if this situation were really true (a young boy traveling alone across the country on the bus) I would hope that people, with a couple exceptions, would treat him as well as Marcus.

I thought Marcus was a great character and I appreciated his heart of gold. In light of the ending, it was great he had so much to give to Sebastian.

I guess the only thing that really bugged me was Sebastian's deepness of thought. Some of the vocabulary and thoughts attributed to Sebastian were more likely to be those of a young 20 year old than a 12 year-old. I could never imagine being in Sebastian's place in terms of the situation of his life, but I also can't imagine him thinking the thoughts attributed to him either.
