Gone from These Woods
Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
Daniel adores his uncle and that's why when they go on Daniel's first hunting trip he wants to please him. Instead he finds it hard to take the life of the warm, living rabbit his uncle wants him to shoot. In his confusion and disappointment he makes a mistake that takes his uncle's life and changes his own life forever. Will his friends and classmates forever see him as a killer? Can his father ever forgive him? Can he ever forgive himself? This is a gut wrenching exploration of how an event that lasts only a second can have life long consequences. This is one that you will want to talk about or even read with someone you trust.
