Praise

“Naylor’s signature ability to coax profound truths out of ordinary characters and familiar events shines, and she avoids supplying easy answers. Change is hard. Familial relationships are complicated. And healing takes time. Buck’s strength is inspirational, and his family’s love and respect are heartwarming.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Writing with characteristic sensitivity, Naylor delivers an engrossing account of a boy’s interior and exterior struggles.”—Publishers Weekly

“Naylor’s novel pulls of a nifty, unusual feat, combining survival in the wilderness with survival in the world of bullies. This is a rare book you could give to readers of Vince Vawter’s Paperboy and also fans of survivalist adventures by Gary Paulsen.”—Booklist

“Naylor offers a well-constructed and well-paced story that will be appreciated by anyone who has ever felt out of place or bullied.”—SLJ
