It’s a book that gave our on-line reading group a huge range of responses. I found it read well, the kids were believable in their own ways, and didn’t notice any particular dialogue difficulties, unlike other members of the group. I wondered whether people expected all the kids to speak in the way their own did, or whether there is a ‘standard US kid speak’ outside which kids who copy their elders’ speech patterns are thought to be peculiar. Maybe I read it in a different accent – which is certainly the case. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and the writing, which risked getting mawkish at times, but managed not to turn me off, which was a great feat!
It’s a lovely story, which risks being one of those ‘misfit finds friendship’ tropes, but pulls out with powerful writing and keen visualisation. I could certainly feel the heat, see the river and the woods, and the potential for adventure. Hannah’s adventure is particularly well handled.
Easy to read, and with engaging characters, Bree Wolf guides the young reader through the trials and tribulations of a young boy's summer of self-discovery.
The plot is interesting, and full of fun, but the story also presents more serious issues with a sensitivity suitable for the younger reader.
I would have loved to read this, as a child, and I would highly recommend it.
