This is my FAVORITE SUMMER 2017 READ for any middle schooler. It describes a boy's journey with his estranged father as they follow the Lewis and Clark trail by car, by boat, and by foot. Along the way, Will finds his own ways to be brave and learns shocking news about his mother. At times, Preller’s writing is poetic in order to capture a pre-teen’s emotional perceptions of his family and his own role in the world around him. Parents or guardians need not worry about any sensitive material. ~ Reviewed by Bonnie Winchester
