When Burl finds his father engaged in adulterous activities in the middle of the woods, he decides to run off, and run off he does. After staying in the forest, Burl eventually comes to the den of the Maestro, where he learns lessons he never would have had he stayed at home. Through his experience, Burl gives himself a larger backbone, making him able to stand up to his father. Though the end of the novel does not fix Burl’s problems, he is still given hope, teaching young adults that not all loose ends are tied up at the end of a story. Though I would recommend this book to teenage boys, The Maestro did not really cut it for me. At any point, I could have walked away from the book and not care about what happened to the characters.
