This is an enjoyable story featuring sixteen-year-old Miles, who cleverly constructs a man-powered vehicle from bicycles and sailboat parts to transport himself, his parents and younger sister to their cabin in the Minnesota wilderness. As they travel, they contend with hostile strangers, such as road bandits and a sheriff who has allowed his relatives to occupy their cabin. In spite of the derailment of the family’s plans, Miles formulates another plan, based on insights gained from an elderly friend he met in a nursing home.

What relatives or friends, elderly or otherwise, could counsel you with regard to living through difficult times? Read Will Weaver’s Memory Boy for the fun of it and draw your own conclusions.
