I don’t think there is any writer right now more important to children’s literature than Dan Gemeinhart. As a librarian, I am sure that he discovered — as I did– that students don’t want sugar-coated or sacharine literature again. They want literature that helps them navigate their way through the real world and all the sadness and perils that define that world. What Gemeinhart is exceptionally good at is taking these stories and elevating them to the utmost level of upliftment. Yes, this is a sad story of a boy who has cancer, but children want to work their way through some understanding of the problem — not have it swept under the rug. While the mood is sometimes sad, it is always tense, the story is filled with unexpected surprises. Ultimately this is a story of hope and friendship; loyalty and love. It’s a story about taking chances — even when life seems to be at its lowest. Gemeinhart demonstrates just how stories uplift us. The last chapter of the book is simply extraordinarily beautiful. Check it out!

This book is about a kid named Mark who has cancer. It is his dream to climb Mr. Rainer. So one day he runs away from his mom, dad and best friend Jess. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure. Some parts are very emotional and left me almost in tears. I like how descriptive the author is. You really gets picture like you are there. I would also recommend this to anyone how likes survival stories and dog stories. Definitely one of the best books I have read all year! -Read Reviews-
This beautifully written story consumed me in every wonderful way possible. I simply could not put it down and read it in a single sitting. It contained so many life lessons that pertain to us all, regardless of age. I’m reminded that angels walk among us each and every day. They are our neighbors, classmates, taxi drivers, etc. It’s also the story of a boy and the most amazing relationship he has with his dog. Truly looking forward to sharing this book with others and would recommend to any and all who are seeking an amazing, inspiring, thought provoking story.
