When eleven-year-old Jack Martel crawls out of his pup tent on the first morning of his camping trip with his mom in Acadia National Park, he notices right away that something isn’t right. Where is his mom’s tent, and their rental car? And where is his mom? Any other kid might panic, might even go to the police. But Jack isn’t like other kids. And his mom isn’t like other moms. Jack knows that it’s up to him to find his mom before someone figures out what’s happened and separates them forever. But finding his mom in the state of Maine isn’t the same as finding her in their neighborhood back in Boston. With nothing but a small plastic elephant to keep him company, Jack begins his search, starting with all the places they’d planned to visit together. But as the search drags on, a dark thought plagues him: once he finds his mom, will he ever be able to forgive her? Download and start listening now!

    " I thought the writing was great, I enjoyed the elephant imagery and facts, and it is definetly suspenseful. It's hard as a mother to read an account, even if it's fictional, of an 11-year-old alone and lost. If you can get past wanting to scream "ask for help!", you'll like this story. I would say kids aged 10-15 would especially enjoy this adventure. "

    " Compelling read. I yearned for Jack to succeed. In the end was satisfied with the ending I did not expect. Bravo! "

    " I definitily loved this book. It took me on adventures through an eleven year old's eyes.Emotional and awakening for Jack, a boy struggling from his mother's inconvenient "spinning" times. To me she sounds like she has OCD or some disorder/disability. But, a wonderful somewhat quick read. LOVED IT. "

    " I loved this book. Jack is abandoned by his mother who is bipolar while on a camping trip in Maine. He is determined to travel home without exposing that he is alone, a mere child of 11 left to fend for himself. He fears going to the authorities will mean his mother will be sent to jail. This book has a lot of action and lots of voice. The ending is precious. "
