About the Book:
"Nobody loves me. Everybody hates me. I'm gonna go eat worms." While Tyler knew he wouldn't really eat worms, he did not feel loved. His parents sent him to live with his grandmother when they separated. Was he angry? You bet. Was he confused? Absolutely. Where did he fit in? He didn't know any more. After an argument with his grandmother, Tyler decided to run away. "I'll show them I can take care of myself." Tyler Andrews doesn't need anyone! Tyler grabbed his piggy bank and his Dad's Navy ring and ran out the back door. He ran until he couldn't run any further. Too stubborn to turn back, he walked further and further into the woods behind grandma's house, scolding himself because he hadn't thought this plan all the way through. And it would be dark soon. Tyler looked up and saw a flash of red. What was it? What luck! It was a flag waving from a window of a tree house. A tree house! Climbing up the ladder nailed into the tree, Tyler's resolve to take care of himself returned. Nothing would change his mind now. Really? What would happen when Cody and Jenna find him? What would happen when he meets Melody? Will these neighbor kids turn him in? What will he do with the wounded sparrow he finds beneath the tree house? Follow Tyler on his adventure to find his place in this world. Laugh or cry with him, whatever you need to do. You might just find you've grown up a little, too.
This was a really good book, it was well written, easy to understand and I could relate to Tyler. Being a child of divorce at an early age and then living with my grandparents, I saw myself all in this story. I had a great upbringing, but Tyler had difficulties living with his grandmother and then ran away, but through all his steps God was with him every step of the way.
While I was reading this I thought oh no what would I do if one of my kiddies ran away, I would be terrified, lose my mind. In the end of the story Tyler was able to meet new friends who guided him along his way.
This book is a wonderful chapter book for elementary to middle school aged can read and understand. I will put this book on the shelf for one of my little readers.
~I received this book for my honest opinion~
