    My reaction to the novel is that Jacob and Jessi are very tough kids. Also dealing with Virgil was really difficult and hard for the characters to talk to other people after that. At the end finding Pa was what made it really good. I would recommend this book to people who like the outdoors and travel because that's what this book has.
