Read full description of the books:
14-year-old Burl Crow has a father who is violent. His mother struggles with mental illness. When he follows his father to his secret fishing spot he learns that his father is having an affair. Burl's cover is blown and his father beats him. As his father strikes blow after blow, a helicopter flies overhead, carrying a piano, distracting them both.
Burl runs into the woods, relying on the skills of survival he learned from his brutal father. He discovers a man in a poorly outfitted cabin, with a piano. The man is composing. He's upset at his lost solitude but can see the bruises on Burl and allows him to stay. The rest of the journey for Burl is a long, tough one but the reader knows that Burl is made of tough stuff and will survive, one way or the other. The writing is beautiful and the story holds you to it to the end.
