You would think this book would be for kids.I mean, a book about a boy and his deer?Hardly reading for adults. That would be a correct thought if this book was only about that, but this book isn't mainly about a boy and his deer.It is mainly about the hardships a family living in Florida face, from starvation, to poverty and even the deaths of friends and neighbors! This book really brings to life its characters and makes you think as the family in this book struggle to survive in such an uninhabited part of the woods. Young readers may not fully appreciate this book, certainly kids may not,as it may be too graphic a tale for them, but I think anyone above the age of thirteen should give this book a chance and sit and read it! It really does pull you in, so that you can barely put it down.
