I found this book to be a nice follow-up to her first book, My Side of the Mountain. This book picks up where the first one left off. Sam's challenges continued when his family decides to return to the city, but with one less child. His little sister convinces her parents that she wants to stay with Sam for the next year, much to his chagrin. What will Sam do now with a sister who is just as free spirited, if not more, as he is? His challenges are multiplied when his sister runs away shortly after his falcon, Frighten, his confiscated by the local conservation officer . What will he do?

This is the second of a series (starts with "My Side of the Mountain") about a boy, who is a falconer, his falcon (Frightful), his sister, and their adventures. My son enjoyed them all. They were recommended reading in his 4th and 5th grade years.
