Raft of Stars by Andrew J. Graff is far from perfect, but it will tick a lot of boxes for a lot of readers. In the mid-nineties in northern Wisconsin, best friends Fish and Bread spent summers in the woods fishing and learning outdoor skills from Fish’s grandfather. When tragedy strikes, the boys run into the woods with a group of adults trying desperately to find them. Raft of Stars is a coming of age, man vs. nature, family drama, and adventure story rolled up together. ( )

A terrific book for those outdoorsy men who think they don't like to read. This tale of two ten-year old boys, thinking they had killed a man, flee to the wilderness where they experience epic storms, wild animals, and a raging river with a grandfather, a sheriff, a mom, and a convenience store clerk on their tail. It is a good, rousing, page-turning tale and would make a cross-county flight fly by. It would have been a perfect read for my late father-in-law, a rugged outdoorsman who discovered the joy of reading at age 72 with Gary Paulsen's Hatchet. Women characters, while heroic are stereotypical mama bears. It does have some lovely descriptions and captures what age 10 feels like to young adventurers.

This is a book that I'd have never picked up -- a coming of age story about boys! Really? I won a copy from Book Browse and knew I had to give it a chance. Wow - am I ever glad that I did. This debut novel was fantastic -- it not only featured the two young boys but also the adults in their lives. I laughed with the two boys and at times their friendship and honesty with each other made me cry. This is a book that I won't soon forget.

It's 1994 in a small town in Wisconsin. Fish has spent the summer with his grandfather ever since his father died three years ago. His best friend Bread lives with an extremely abusive father who constantly terrorizes him. The boys became best friends as soon as they met and they spend their summer in the woods, playing games and making up stories for their enjoyment. Until the summer night that Fish sees Bread's father hitting him and Fish grabs a gun and shoots him. The two boys know that they are in big trouble and head off into the woods to get as far away as possible. They make it to the river, make a raft and set out on their adventure to escape. They are being tracked by four adults who want to help them - Fish’s mother Miranda, a wise woman full of fierce faith; his granddad, Teddy, who knows the woods like the back of his hand; Tiffany, a purple-haired gas station attendant and poet looking for connection; and Sheriff Cal, who’s having doubts about a life in law enforcement. The time the boys spend on the river is full of perilous situations that had this reader quickly turning pages to find out the outcome.

This book is more than a simple coming of age novel. It's a story about the bonds of friendship and the lengths that people will go through to help the people that they love - whether they are family by blood or family by friendship. Thanks to BookBrowse for a copy of this book to read and review. It was fantastic! ( )
