This is a story about a twelve year old boy named Jack. It takes place in a Campground called Seawall Campground on Mount Desert Island in Maine. When Jack’s mom has one of her spinning moments, Jack gets left behind at the campground with only his souvenir money.
He has many difficult, exciting adventures and learns many lessons. It is an exciting adventure you will never forget. As you go deeper into the story you don’t want to stop. Jack goes from being comfortable to being scared out of his wits whenever he sees somebody.
My favorite part was when Jack learns that his grandmother didn’t want to take him away, and that she really she cared. I also liked the parts where Jack took out the small elephant for hope. I did not like the parts when Jack got hurt or when he cried. I felt like I was feeling (emotionally and mentally) what he was feeling, but that means that author did a good job writing this book if you can take on the emotions of the characters. I would recommend this book to my friends.
