2 of 5 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on March 18, 2002
Format: Hardcover
"North" is a wonderful story of a talented 13 year old boy (North) whose parents don't appriciate. He makes great grades in school, he's a wonderful athlete, and is active in extra-curricular activities but everyone except his parents seem to acknowlenge this gold-mine of a child. This book turns upside-down when North goes on a huge expedition to find new parents; ones that love him. He travels the world, from Hawaii to Texas to Zaire, but he can't seem to find what he's looking for. Read this wonderul book, "North" by Alan Zwiebel to see what happens to North and if he ever finds the perfect parents.

I read this book, and loaned it out... and it never came back. I bought it again, loaned it out... and it didn't come back either. Very fun, very entertaining, and far far better than the movie.
