Review this title!
Parent of a 2, 8, 10, 11, and 14 year old Written byNothingofwater March 31, 2013

Great adventure read!

I loved it as a kid, and I love as a parent. Has a lot of the simplistic feeling as 'The Giver', but without all the weighty moralizing. Straightforward plot, with clear progression toward a goal make this an easy read. The book is some forty years old, so the prose is clean, focusing on the story rather than trying to be 'edgy' or 'gritty' like so much more recent books.
