The Honest Truth by Dan Gemeinhart a 2 and a half hour read
Okay this book made me cry, not constantly but several times. It is another story about a youth who stages a successful runaway aided by the silence of a friend, his devoted dog, and one adult at the very end of the journey. There are others who might have helped him but he wouldn’t have it, he was determined to make it on his own. The fact that the one adult at the end doesn’t intervene is a little hard to believe, but it makes the story. The story makes me think that sometimes we are certain we have to do things on our own, but maybe we are wrong, and maybe we should let people help us.
