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 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.
