PRAISE FOR The Skeleton Tree:

"The skeleton tree and a bear that seems to stalk the characters give the story a dark and foreboding tone. This is not a typical survival tale . . . the focus is on the rocky and evolving relationship between the two boys. Though Frank is cruel and Chris is innocent, readers come to understand that each boy is much more than he appears. . ." --Starred Rview, School Library Journal

"Fans of Hatchet and Lord of the Flies will be drawn to this harrowing survival story from Lawrence (The Winter Pony), which offers psychological suspense and action in equal measure. The boys' exploration of rugged territory and the mysterious 'skeleton tree' with coffins in its branches neatly parallels their individual quests to make sense of recent losses and the lives they have left behind." --Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

"Unsettling and compelling, a gripping, evocative read." --Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

"Lawrence's firsthand knowledge of his setting brings lush, exhilarating vibrancy to this excellent survival story." --The Toronto Star

"Readers will anxiously be turning pages to see who survives. With great action and a twist at the end, this book will appeal to mature readers ages 10 to 12." --The Calgary Herald
