Last Man’s Reward

David Patneaude’s Last Man’s Reward tells the story of a group of friends that makes a valuable discovery. Realizing it cannot be split equally, the group of boys decides to make  a pact that the last one still living in the temporary company housing wins the prize but will need to cross a ravine to get their reward.

What started as a group that was stuck together due to proximity, small friendships evolve and they end up depending on each other more than they could expect.

I read this with my son’s 4th grade book group and they devoured this story! It was a fun and unexpectedly emotional book.
