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. "

    " 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! "

    " This book was recommended to me by a friend. I really liked it, but didn't love it. I do however think this is one of those books I need to put away on a shelf for my son to read when he gets a bit older. "
