          I like this book because most of us are not brave enough to go live in the woods by are selfies. I think that Sam Grible is a brave boy and i would not be brave enough to do things that he does. I recommend this boo because if you like to be outside then this is the book for you.I f my friend read this book I think she would want to be outside more than she already is which she is outside a lot.

                  This book is one of my favorite books that I have read, because it is very adventurous. IT is also makes you want to read more witch is something I real like in a book. I recommend this book because it is very descriptive and a very meaningful. Also this book is not only about a boy living in the wilderness it is also about family and friends and how they love you no matter what. So this is why I gave this book a 5/5 and recommend it.

                    I do recommend this because it was an amazing story about what it takes to survive in the wilderness. It has hardships as well as fun times. Definitely a favorite book and was recommended by my teacher (Mrs. Backer), it was her favorite book. It turned out to be a favorite of mine, too.
