** spoiler alert ** Ian is growing up in a world were he has no parental support. His mother is a drug addict and throughout most of the book we dont know where his father is or what he does. Ian is forced to take care of his ten year old brother who is somewhat challenged. To top things off Ian and his brother dont fit in well at school. Ians principle tells him that he is "cleaning up" the school and that Ian would have more success at another school. Later, Ian is harassed by his gym teacher and ends up hitting him. Ian knew that he would be in trouble so he took what he could, including his brother, and set out to find his father really not knowing what to expect. Along the way Ian and his brother expirience alot of hardships that kids shouldnt have to face. They end up finding his father, and as it turns out, his father is a warden for a corrections facility. His father hears about their journey to find him and then he turns them in. This book is great for readers who love journeys into the unknown. I reccomend this book to anyone who loves adventure.
