Hobbs is such a wonderful author, especially for boys. If you like Gary Paulsen, you'll love Will Hobbs. This is the story of 14-year-old Cloyd, a Ute Indian boy who has been sent to a group home in Colorado. For the summer he is sent to a farm owned by elderly Walter Landis. Walter and Cloyd struggle to understand each other, even as Cloyd seeks to understand himself and his heritage. A wonderful story set in the beautiful Colorado mountains. Starts a little slow, but picks up quickly. A very enjoyable read.
