One night, just before final exams, 18-year-old Franklin Crabbe - smart, rich, yet unhappy and semi-alcoholic - packs his gear and drives away into the woods to disappear completely. Totally unprepared for bush life, Crabbe nearly perishes until he meets someone else who has her reasons to hide.


It's been 20 years since William Bell brought Franklin Crabbe to the world .

It's been 20 years since William Bell brought Franklin Crabbe to the world of Young Adult literature, and yet, Crabbe's story, largely set in the timeless Canadian wilderness, is still an authentic tale of self-discovery and coming-of-age that will resonate with older teens. As in other works from this genre, such as Harry Mazer's "Snowbound," nature is the equalizing force that pares the individual down to the soul before beginning the rebuilding, and in some cases, the healing process. William Bell holds a Masters of Arts degree in Literature and a Master of Education degree.

It can help weak readers understand some more ways to understand novels and stroy lines. I highly advise it to stay in schools. It will help the students that are too lazy to go out to the country and explore how to survive and what possibilities can happen in nature. I also like how that the author made the chapters into journal entries.

Why is it that almost everyone had to read this book for school? Huh? I had to read it too and it was INCREDIBLY BORING. I did not enjoy this book AT ALL. It had a bad plot and alotta swearing(who doesn't swear tho...) But it was somewhat disturbing hearing my teacher swear when reading this book to us. ANYWAY in the beginning I actually had hope but... Something went wrong. Also we had tons of questions for each chapter(VERY annoying). So If you have a choice, I don't recommend you read this book. If you wanna know what it's about, It's about an 18 yr old guy named Crabbe, Franklin Crabbe. He's rich and has good grades but somethings missing. So he secretly and cleverly runs away from home. He almost kills himself falling down a waterfall and is saved by a girl named Mary. He stays with her and she teaches him some valuable things about survival and life... >^,,^<

This novel was fairly decent:it had an alright plot, it was written somewhat well, and was interesting in most parts. I did not like this novel, however, because i had to read it as a school assignment. I think that because of that, it took all of the pleasure out of the novel, and i didn't have time to appreciate certain things about the novel.
I also did not like the ending of the novel. I felt that it didnt explain well enough what happened to Crabbe.
Overall, this book would definitally be more enjoyable if you were not pressed for time to read it, and then have to do a load of work on it.

Am I the only person here who didn't read this for school? Well anyway...

This book I found created way more intrigue at the very beginning than it actually had in it. Immediately I was curious about why Crabbe had gone missing, where he went, why he refused to tell anybody where he went, why he was missing fingers etc. Later on, I was very appreciative of his motive for leaving town and disappearing, as it seemed a very realistic reason someone his age would cook up, and I had a lot of sympathy for him (as I was about 14 when I read the book). It was, basically, intriguing. I was motivated to read on.

And then I find out that the reason behind his missing fingers, his scars, etc. and none of them were nearly as interesting as I'd hoped. A lot of it just seemed random and didn't really fit in with any kind of moral that the author was delivering, or really had any kind of deeper meaning or reasoning. I was unsatisfied.

Not only that, but the climax of the book just seemed like the author scrambling for something to happen. There was the death of a character that was totally unnecessary to the plot, and basically just there to draw sympathy for the characters. The death wasn't really speculated on afterward (that I can remember) and it didn't need to happen. Basically, this book could have been way better than it was.

This is an excellent novel. It can help weak readers understand some more ways to understand novels and stroy lines. I highly advise it to stay in schools.
