Consumer Critique: The Boy Who Ran

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

The Boy Who Ran is not the type of book I'd expect from someone who has had a career as a physicist. This novel intended for kids in middle grades follows the story of a young Native American orphan trying to find his place in the world six thousand years ago after his village was massacred and he was neglected in his adopted village. He can run through the forest, fast and quietly, like a ghost - and it was his gift, his secret. He meets those who help him - master hunter Raven and romantic interest Morning Song - and a rival, Dark Sun.

I enjoyed the book. It has enough action to move the story along and has characters that are interesting and realistic. It's a great story about trying to find one's identity and working for what's worthwhile.
