Alabama Moon
by Watt Key
Buy book: $10.40

For as long as ten-year-old Moon can remember, he has lived out in the forest in a shelter with his father. They keep to themselves, their only contact with other human beings an occasional trip to the nearest general store. When Moon’s father dies, Moon follows his father’s last instructions: to travel to Alaska to find others like themselves. But Moon is soon caught and entangled in a world he doesn’t know or understand, apparent property of the government he has been avoiding all his life. As the spirited and resourceful Moon encounters constables, jails, institutions, lawyers, true friends, and true enemies, he adapts his wilderness survival skills and learns to survive in the outside world, and even, perhaps, make his home there.

P.S. Win a copy of last month's book Tangerine. Email Manjot with an answer to one of her questions and you'll be entered to win. I have 20 copies to give away to lucky readers. Send your email to: Teen@emailbookclub.com

political tie in

I am curious to find out what drove the dad to the woods. I would guess he is not a "militia" man--there are no others around. I am ready for the next four emails. I might need to buy it for our middle school library. Sounds like it would be an interesting counterpart to the Brian series of books by Paulsen.

So far, Alabama Moon's been a great read. I can't wait for the next few emails to come. I may even check the book out at my local library or buy it from the bookstore. Does anyone else agree with me? It's just something about the story and the emotions tied in with it that make me want to read more. What about you?
