The Journey Back by Priscilla Cummings, 224 pages, read by Leslie, on 09/15/2013

The Journey Back

After breaking out of juvenile detention, fourteen-year-old Digger stops his trek across Maryland at a campground where he recovers from injuries, cares for little Luke, works with smart and pretty Nora, and begins to understand how his behavior and choices shape his life.

This a companion book the The Red Kayak, continuing the story of Digger.  I liked the story and feel compelled to read the previous story to find out what led him to the decisions that landed him in a juvenile facility.  Digger learns a lot about himself in his journey to get back to his mom and siblings.  His heart is in the right place, if he only learns to control his impulses and think of the consequences of his actions.  Highly recommend it to any reader.
