Lexile measure:
Twelve-year-old Sammy gets lost in the woods, where he meets the "wild kid", Kevin, who is on the run from a local reform school. At first he terrorizes Sammy, a mildly retarded child with Down's syndrome. Then the two become friends, as together they work to survive in the unforgiving wilderness. A middle-grade novel that even reluctant readers will enjoy, this is real adventure in the tradition of Hatchet and My Side of the Mountain.
