Book description
[From Back Cover]: Kit is ready for an adventure. Actually, she is ready for anything - as long as it doesn't involve chores, which are all she's been doing all summer long. When a young hobo names Will stops to work in the Kittredges' garden in exchange for a meal, he tells Kit about life on the road. Kit imagines Will has the life of freedom and adventure she longs for - on the move, seeing the world, sleeping under the stars. Then Will leaves without taking food to share with the other hoboes in the hobo jungle. Kit is determined to visit the jungle - and Will. But when she does, she gets more than she bargained for!
