Summary

Imagine you wrote a story and it came true. That is exactly what happens to Blue Baker who writes a story about a savage living alone in the woods near his home. After his dad’s death, Blue finds comfort in dreaming of this strange wild kid. But when the savage pays a visit to the local bully, boundaries become blurred and Blue begins to wonder where he ends and the savage begins.

ambiguous heart.

I felt moved and heart sore for the main character. it's a special book for young people to think about loss and the grieving process. but I believe it's best given to a child who has not lost a loved one yet.
