with no parents He never really knew where he belonged so he acted out about his situation His behavior landed him a spot at the Blue Canyon Youth Detention Center His 6 month sentence there was cut short one day when Rick made a run for his freedom Eventually, he found himself living with a biologist, Lon Peregrino, in the canyons of Arizona Rick learned that sometimes in life people can be misjudged He learned so because he thought of Lon as someone completely different from him at first Later, Rick found out he and Lon had surprisingly a lot in common Living with Lon didn t come easy Two outlaws living in the same area didn t like the presence of Rick and Lon I wanted to read this book because I wanted an adventure story full of heart I can somewhat relate to this book because my brother has been sent to a youth detention center before What Rick goes through in the detention center is accurate according to my brother s accounts I can relate to the main character Rick because he and I both try to see the good in every situation The book lived up to its promise and went beyond The book was full of emotion and left me feeling satisfied You should read this story if you want an adventure book rich in lessons and full of emotion You should not read this book if you are sensitive to the hardships of foster children Anyone who wants a book involving man vs self would enjoy this book This book isn t for people who don t like emotion in a story Recommended for gr 6 12 This is my all time favorite Will Hobbs book I love his descriptions of the Maze in Canyonlands National

military camp thing for stealing a cd , and it also reminded me of holes in the beginning which I like When he escaped he came across this guy in the middle of the desert with wild, man eating birds and it didn t really go anywhere for then on There was absolutely no plot in this book and the event were random, out of place and just plain boring I had to stop reding it almost This book was

Thank gosh for small miracles.Also, I do remember not liking this book as a child Was not a fan, but I cannot remember why Maybe because there was actually no maze involved despite the title The only part of the book The Maze that I really enjoyed was the last third or so At that point comes some intrigue, political and plotwise, and it sustained me for the end of the book and made up for the drudgery that was the first big chunk A disappointment, really, since I ve read a couple of Will Hobbs other books and enjoyed them much , but this one just didn t do it for me The Maze features Rick

other books and enjoyed them much , but this one just didn t do it for me The Maze features Rick Walker, a delinquent as all of Hobbs characters seem to be who runs away into the wilderness and befriends a bird researcher who teaches him many things but also gets him caught up into a potentially deadly anti government scheme It was indeed this latter part, the conflict between Lon Peregrino and his anti government enemies, that made the book worth reading at all, but I certainly lost interest many times in the pages leading up to that Still a quick, entertaining read, but not as good in my opinion as Downriver or River Thunder It was a horrible bookThese are the reasons it was bad 1 No maze 2 Only 1 main character not like The Blood of Olympus where there is 10 main characters 3 No action at all 4 So hard to get the plot of the story 5 In the book it made him sound like a 7 year old kid when on the book cover he is like 13 years old Drpy Guy I respect Will Hobbs because, like Gary Paulsen, he has experienced every wilderness trail and white water he s written about, and this authenticity paired with the rugged majesty of the Southwest is inspirational Made to order for reluctant readers or males with a chip on their shoulder, the story of Rick Walder, a 14 year old on the run from escaping a detention center in Utah will not disappoint He stumbles onto a truck that

quote from the book is a golden piece of the sun I like this quote because its from Rick s grandma and she used it to represent denver My least favorite character is Nuke because he and his buddy try to ruin the Condor Project by killing the birds The Maze by Will Hobbs is a Young adult, and fiction novel which captures the will of a 14 years old,Rick Walker, to soar the through the clouds Rick
