Gone From These Woods Reviews

A Sampling of Gone From These Woods Reviews

"The dynamics of the Sartain family are well-developed and genuine as a result of Daniel's authentic first-person narration. Seagraves' debut should leave readers weighing death, guilt and forgiveness."--Publisher's Weekly

"There is a lot of complexity in this coming-of-age novel. Sensitive younger readers will be drawn in by Daniel's story, which can be likened to a more emotional twin of Gary Paulsen's Hatchet."--Booklist

"Donny does a masterful job of creating characters, especially young Daniel Sartain and his grieving family . . . To have written a book of such moral weight and complexity . . . is a magnificent achievement."--Philip Lee Williams

"When I was in elementary school, I read your book, Gone From These Woods, and it has stuck with me. It was my first favorite book and I still think about it to this day, and I'm now 22. Thank you so much for writing such an amazing book that has stuck with me all these years."--Jaden Scott
