Ten-year-old Moon has lived in an Alabama forest with his Pap ever since he can remember. Pap, a Vietnam vet, taught Moon how to survive-and how to keep away from the government. On his deathbed, Pap tells Moon that he must flee to Alaska to find others like them and continue to live free, without government restrictions. Soon though, a well-meaning acquaintance turns Moon over to the local boys' home. Moon is determined to keep the promise he made to his father, so with Hal and Kit, the first friends he's ever had, he sets off for Alaska. But Moon learns the hard way that you need to trust sometimes-and maybe Pap wasn't right to distrust everyone and everything. Watt Key, a native Alabaman, makes a stunning debut with this novel.

    " This is a fantastic book for anyone who liked "Hatchet" or other survival type books. Although I am not a big fan of these types of books, I really liked this story. The main character, Moon, is loveable and funny without beig annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginny | 2/14/2014

    " Ilove this story of a young boy who has been raised in the woods by his father. Unfortunately, there is some rough language (reform-school type) that makes it unsuitable for young readers--the adventure is great and boys would love this story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake Wavra | 11/27/2012

    " This book started out as a 3 star, moved up to a 4, and ended with a 5 star rating from me. I really enjoyed the author's portrayal of the the little boy, Moon, and his first person narration. Great illustrations of outdoor survival/backcountry living. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 5/25/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Ishtayeh | 5/19/2012

    " This was a good book. Interesting but not the type I normally read. Kind of surprised I added it to my list. I think it must be a "kids" book but it was still a nice little adventure. Can't imagine my 10 year old being able to kill a deer though! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anya | 3/19/2012

    " this book was ok... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 12/12/2011

    " Kind of My Side of the Mountain on the lam. A fair bit of violence and a really evil sheriff, so I would recommend for 6th grade and up. Should be a good pick for reluctant boy readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 11/26/2011

    " This is juvenile fiction, about a young boy who has grown up in the woods and how he adapts once he is found by people. A good story. "
