Feral Youth by Shaun David Hutchinson

On Sale Now!
An OK try at updating the Canterbury Tales for teens. I didn’t really get into this book, but Shaun David Hutchinson is a good author, so I don’t really know what happened here. If this had just been a book of stories, and the escape from the forest plot had been a separate book, I would have loved both, but together neither felt necessary. Rating: Three/Five
