This book reminded me of a recurring nightmare that I had as child when I was running and hiding in the woods from some unknown enemy. Set "slightly in the future" during a world-wide war, a family of children are left to survive on their own when their mother leaves for some unknown reason probably related to the war. It did keep my attention and at times I was fairly riveted to the page. Not the best I've ever read, but certainly not the worst.

2005 Michael L Printz Award BookI have a love-hate relationship with this book. I thought it was very well written, however, I will be very surprised if a lot of teenagers read it and like it. There were times when I wanted to put it down and not finish it at all. I did like the ending. I think it might make a good discussion book, however, I would have a really hard time trying to sell a book I didn't entirely like.
