Read in June, 2008

I finished this book yesterday, and it's haunting me. Beautifully descriptive. The boy & the grandfather, who are the main characters, come across as real people, and while I read I was just begging for them to be successful, make good choices, come out okay in the end. But it's a short, thoughtful, slow-moving story. Even though it's a survival tale, it's not really for fans of Hatchet or adventure stories. I'm not sure who it's for. I really liked it, but couldn't give it more stars because it won't be an easy sell to any of the kids I know.
