Navigating Early

math books for middle schoolThis book, written by Clare Vanderpool, tells of two boys’ trek on the Appalachian Trail during a break from the boarding school where they met. Early Auden is like no one Jack Baker has ever met back at his Kansas home. Early becomes Jack’s friend at the Maine school, even though Jack can’t understand why Early reads the number pi as a story and won’t take anything for granted. Together they hike the trail where they both encounter danger and make amazing discoveries.
