    Reminiscent of adult novels by Yann Martel and Alice Hoffman (



    Reminiscent of adult novels by Yann Martel and Alice Hoffman (Life of Pi, The Red Garden), Newberry Medal-winning author Clare Vanderpool employs the mythic metaphors of Boat and Bear with a grace all her own. in this new coming-of-age tale for middle school readers set just after WWII. When 13-year-old Jack Baker’s distant Naval Officer father dumps him at Morton Hill Academy for Boys following his mother’s death, Jack’s only real solace must be found in his decidedly-odd fellow eighth grader, Early Auden. Thoroughly disoriented by his move from the plains of Kansas to the coast of Maine, Jack accepts Early’s offer of friendship. Surprises abound as the boys explore the mysteries of competitive Crew, Billie Holiday, frontier mathematics and what really lurks in the forest. This is a satisfying read with profound meaning that never comes on too strong; highly recommended for Grades 5 through 10, especially for students dealing with parent loss.

    Fabulous

    If you enjoy middle grade novels (10+ ages) you will love this gem. Historical, adventure, and heart--it has it all. If you liked Ms. Vanderpool's first novel or books like HOLES (with a story within a story) this will be a perfect fit for you or your young reader.

    OMG OMG OMG!!!!!

    This book is very good. It took me a bit to get it all read but it was worth it. I love the lumberjack and how Early acts. Although it is quite displeasing how his dad and brother died. T.T
