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.

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.

I chosen this book because it looked interesting. I think it would be about 2 boys. No it was about  girl life story. Clare decided she wanted to be a writer in fifth grade and at age 45 her first book was published. (Fiction)  I like this book because it tells you that your dreams can come true and to never give up on  your dreams. Because someday your dream is gonna be true. This book is  very inspiration. I think kids to 10+  year old can read this book. It's about a girl and she had a dream about being a writer then she gruaduated and then she became a writer and published her first book at age 45
