Three kids – Jake, Jo, and Jamie – are from unstable environments. These kids, who basically raise themselves, find joy in art and dogs. While Jake, Jo, and Jamie can’t easily change their worlds, they can find the courage to move forward. Gary Paulsen, the author The Winter Room, Hatchet, and Dogsong, is a Newbery Honor winner. ( )
