Jack's mom is gone, leaving him all alone on a campsite in Maine. Can he find his way back to Boston before the authorities realize what happened?
Small as an Elephant
Ever since Jack can remember, his mom has been unpredictable, sometimes loving and fun, other times caught in a whirlwind of energy and "spinning" wildly until it's over. But Jack never thought his mom would take off during the night and leave him at a campground in Acadia National Park, with no way to reach her and barely enough money for food.
Any other kid would report his mom gone, but Jack knows by now that he needs to figure things out for himself - starting with how to get from the backwoods of Maine to his home in Boston before Social Services catches on. With nothing but a small toy elephant to keep him company, Jack begins the long journey south, a journey that will test his wits and his loyalties - and his trust that he may be part of a larger herd after all.

When I found this I realized not to judge a book by its cover literally SUMMARY: no spoilers, you find this out in the first 5 pages A mother abandons her child when they are camping in Maine, The boy has no source of communication, and he sets off to home. Twist: HE doesn't tell anyone his mother is missing because he'd be taken away and put in a foster home. An amazing book full of twists, like a police chase and a suspicious girl I've recently read this book and think its really cool. I recommend this book to ages 10 and up, just because there are a few hard words and situations to understand.
His mother suffers from mental illness and has abandoned him. Jack knows that if he tells anyone about this, he will most likely be taken from his mother, and since this has happened before, he decides to try to find her before doing anything else. After discovering that his mother is not accessible, he decides to try to make it home. Once he realizes just how far away home is, he decides to do something that he hopes will let his mom know he forgives her. His struggles to get enough to eat, find a decent place to sleep, keep him from admitting that he and his mother need help.
But eventually, Jack receives the help he needs. Some reviewers think the parts about the elephants are not necessary, but I disagree. Jack's love of elephants and the small plastic elephant he carries for most of his journey, help Jack complete his journey. Maybe it's because I have a similar passion for horses that I can understand Jack's passion and his clinging to that passion to avoid thinking about his mother's abandonment and the feelings that go with it.
Yes, Jack does sometimes behave both older and younger than his age, but having worked with kids his age as well as younger and older, I can say that while some kids mature faster than others, but they all have moments of contradictory behavior like many adults, too. In addition, sadly enough there are all to many children in the world who have to learn to take care of themselves far earlier than they should.
I found this book an interesting, empathy-inducing read. A very arduous journey for a sweet-natured 11 yr old boy of a mother who is afflicted by bipolar I. Young Jack finds himself abandoned at a campground in Maine after having a heated argument with his mother the previous night. Upon awakening to his unwanted solitude, Jack begins his multi-goal'ed journey of finding his mother, evading authorities, and trekking home. Along the way, he's enriched and sustained by his travels, fears, curiosity, memories, and interests elephants, for one!derivid.route1.com/amn-amn-amn-aprende-a.php
