Soon Peter runs away, leaving Hank to bear the Olsons' sharp tongues and violent anger. He is sure the loneliness will kill him.

Simply story with a wonderful Protagnist

Hank is a great character. Readers will cheer for him. The story is straight forward but the author does a great job conveying Hanks emotions. Readers will feel his physical and emotional pain from hard work, the cold, and sorrow. A short, great, young adult read. I'm 23 y/o and loved this book. The target readers would be 5-8 graders. Teachers, recommend this book to your students.
