When the main character's mother is arrested for abusing dogs and her son. The main character ends up at a small village in the robust mountains. His uncle takes him in when nobody else decide to. The boy becomes friedns with his uncle and his dog, Gabe. If you wan't to know more about the book... Read it yourself!
I think this book deserves a four star rating. I like the poetry element, the plot, and the description. However, I would not give it five stars because a lot of it was super predictable. I definitely, however, recommend this to whoever you are. Although, there are a few things I should mention...
A Quick Notice
If you aren't in at least 4th grade, this book might not have as much of a meaning to you. It feature some difficult times that the main character must go through, and young people might not be able to understand how bad they really are. If you are going to read this and you are younger than i reccomended, I suggest you have a parent read another copy at the same time.
