Read in September, 2009

In my quest to read some classics and Newbery books that I've never read, I picked this one up. It had a great story, well-developed characters and setting and nice ending (everything I like!). It's suitable for girls or boys but is told from a boy's perspective at age 13 so I think when my son gets older he'll really like it. It teaches a lot of good lessons - faith (in his parents returning), trust (in his newfound friends), courage, responsibility, perseverance, etc.
