Clear rating

A teen/young adult trying to find himself story. It's a juvenile version of Krakauer's Into the Wild (without the tragic ending)in that Wil is searching for something inside himself. Like Thoreau, he uses nature to discover the meaning of life. It's esoteric, but concrete enough for struggling readers to enjoy.
