Small as an Elephant by Jennifer Richard Jacobson

Summary:   Abandoned by his mother in an Acadia National Park campground, and with only a small toy elephant for company, Jack tries to make his way back to Boston before anyone figures out what is going on.

You know how when a kid gets lost, their mom or dad finds them? Well, Jack Martell’s world is turned up-side down when his mom leaves him stranded in the middle of Acadia National Park, and he sets out to find her. Will an 11-year-old survive long enough to reunite with his mom and find his place in the herd?
You’re probably feeling sooo sorry for Jack and wanting to read this book. But I’ve got to tell you, it isn’t any good. I really didn’t like this book. The story moves slowly and it gets boring after the first paragraph.  I had to struggle to stay awake. I was stuck wondering, what’re you getting at? And, what’s the significance here? I got fed up with his little sob story and wanted it to be over!
