This is a wonderful novel. It has two charming and likeable lead characters, Early Aulden and Jack Baker, two boys suffering from some of the greatest losses imaginable. The boys going on a adventure in the Appalachian, to search for someone who is lost. And what they find there is truly surprising.
This book is filled with tons of heart, adventure, and even surprising to me some shocking twist. At times I got teary-eyed, at times I my heart raced with thrills, and at times my mouth was hanging open in surprise. A truly delightful adventure.
