Book Review of My Side of the Mountain (Mountain, Bk 1)

My Side of the Mountain (Mountain, Bk 1)

"Aren't you scared to stay here by yourself?" asks the driver.

"Heck no!" Sam shouts, swinging down from the truck. He's come from the city to live in the forest for a whole year. All he has with him are a knife, an axe, and flint and steel for making a fire--no matches, no food, no tent.

But this first night he can't get a fire going. Hungry and cold, he sits shivering, listening to the wild cries of night creatures...

Now he is scared!!!

Would make a wonderful book for any Middle school child!
