Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild. At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.
Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own. . . .
My 25 cents...I am a dog lover, so any animal relationship book is high on my list! I loved this story. The reader can feel the love Peter has for Pax as well as his determination to get him back despite his father's instructions to set him free. Peter learns some lessons along the way, as does Pax.
