Product description


"The conclusion is a satisfying one. . . Timely." VOYA"

* "Strong characters drive the carefully crafted novel. . . Hubbard's sparse, elegant prose captures the rural landscape's desolate beauty as well as its dangers and palpably expresses the family's escalating tensions. . . [An] atmospheric, ultimately hopeful novel."--School Library Journal, starred review

"The conclusion is a satisfying one. . . Timely."--VOYA

"Hubbard gets Jory's emotions just right. . . The pacing moves smoothly, balancing the everyday with the impending Crisis, and the ending ties up every loose thread. An excellent choice for discussion."--Booklist

"Haunting, tense, and moving. . . Caleb's efforts to safeguard himself and his family will stay with readers."--Publishers Weekly

"Hubbard writes fluently and accessibly. . . An absorbing tale."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
