Publisher Comments:

Every morning fifteen-year-old Wil Neuton gets up, brushes his teeth, leaves the house, and rows away from shore. He's discovered the island--a place where he can go to be alone and learn to know nature--and himself. On the island he watches the loons and the fish in the lake, and writes and paints. It feels good to get away from the tension rising between his parents, tension brought on by yet another move to a new town.

But Wil can't stay away from the outside world forever. He must face Ray Bunner, the bully determined to challenge him, and his parents, who worry when Wil decides to stay on the island indefinitely. Can Wil bridge the growing gap between himself and the rest of the world?

I believe the book was overall not too bad It had its boaring moments where not much reqally happened but overall i like Gary Paulsens style of writing. I like how descriptive he is, and how he can make simple stuff seem interesting. However by the time i reached the middle of the book i realized not much actualy happened. The book isnt packed full of action, like some of his other books, but is you are a fan of Gary Paulsen you should give this book a try.
