I thought this book was okay except for I didn't understand how they talked.

Peter is a newly orphaned boy who gets adopted by a very religious Quakers. Peter hates them and tries to go bondsmen hunting for a reward of his freedom. When he finally catches one he realizes that the bondsman is his age. Now he must chose which is more important his freedom or the bondsman¿s life. The way Avi expresses the characters feelings are sensational, only out matched by the incredible rush you get when Peter is on the hunt. Peter is a young boy who has no parents to guide him through life. He is a ruthless individual who will stop at nothing to get his freedom. Avi¿ knack for expressing Peter¿s hatred toward the Shinn¿s is almost scary that one human could ever feel that way toward anther. While reading Night Journeys I visualized and made connections to our world. The way Peter was hunting down the bondsman reminded me of the way the U.S.A is hunting and searching for Osama Bin Ladin. Night Journeys, was an easy read book that I would recommend forto an age group of people from 11-14. Right from the start to the very end this book gripped me in a way that I was unable to put the book down. Avi, a New Berry Award winner doesn¿t fail to bring her A game in writing this story and certainly doesn¿t disappoint the reader either.

I thought this book about a boy helping two felons escape was very well written. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a good adventure!

I was in a fifth grade, ILA classroom one day last school year, and the students were in four groups of six. The groups were chosen by the children chosing the book they wanted to read. One group was 'Night Journeys' by Avi and the kids in the group had so much fun doing the project. As well as the other students in the other groups had just as much fun watching the 'Night Journeys' act. I would have to say that 'Night Jouneys' was the best book out of them all. I make that decision by the applause the children in the 'Night Journeys' group recieved from the other children. I have to say that it is a great book for fifth graders and 'KIDS LOVE IT!!!'
