Overview

The 11-year-old son of a reclusive anti-government extremist finds his life upended after his father dies suddenly, leaving the untamed boy to fend for himself alone in the wilderness. Moon Blake's father never trusted a soul. A paranoid loner, he raised his young son in the deep woods, teaching him everything he needed to be completely self-sufficient. When his father suffers a mortal injury, Moon sets his sights on Alaska. His journey is cut short, however, when a hard-hearted policeman has him shipped off to reform school. There, with the help of his newfound friends, Moon plans his big escape while learning the one lesson that his father could never teach him: no man is an island.

    Very good!

    I loved this book and found it very interesting. About a boy who lived in the woods his hole life, but when his "Pap" dies, he's forced to change his ways. He meets friends, escapes the authorities, and gets a sense of the real world.
    The ending is nice, and just before sad. I heard the sequel is not even about Moon (the main character).

    Awesome book and I recommend it!
