Editorial Reviews

Review

“Themes of accepting change and learning to let go are woven into this winning tale of boy and dog.” –School Library Journal

“Sturdily conveyed, the lessons are telegraphed on each page…it stand out are the deftly folded-in gun lessons and easy acceptance of the way of life they accompany.” –Kirkus Reviews

I recently bought this book for my nephew. He had to choose a book from a list his teacher gave him and this was one that he thought looked interesting. He's not a very enthusiastic reader, but this book really caught his imagination and he read it quickly. His favorite part was telling everyone about the chapter he had just read. I recommend this for any boy who doesn't care for reading. It could change his mind. :)

Erick life is on a down hill slide. His parents have just been deployed to Iraq. This means that he must move across the country to stay with his grandparents that he barely knows. When he gets there learns that his grandfather is an angry man. He is still dealing with the grief of losing his son in Iraq. Erik has had enough and decides to run away with a hunting dog that he has found. When the grandfather finds out that his grandson has run away it causes him to reevaluate his own life. He starts to make a change for the better.

The novel moves at a fast pace. This book would be great for boys that are interested in wild life and survival stories.

This is the best book of all times and it almost brought me to tears. I have always longed for a dog as quill and now know to cherish what you have because it does not always last forever
