This outstanding book introduced me to a gifted author.

I used it recently as for "virtual" reading with a student for summer enrichment. It complimented our other selections: "My Side of the Mountain", "The Light in the Forest", "Bud, not Buddy", and "The Red Pony". We were able to compare and contrast all of these well-written coming of age novels. ( )

First words
Brian Robeson stared out the window of the small plane at the endless green northern wilderness below.
Quotations
He could not play the game without hope; could not play the game without a dream. They had taken it all away from him now, they had turned away from him and there was nothing for him now. The plane gone, his family gone, all of it gone. They would not come. He was alone and there was nothing for him.
In measured time, forty-seven days had passed since the crash. Forty-two days, he thought, since he had died and had been born as the new Brian.
Many times he thought he would not make it.
