A Week in The Woods

One book I recently read is A Week in the Woods by Andrew Clements.  The book is about a boy named Mark.  His parents are really rich and have almost half a billion dollars.  Since they are always out of town, they hire a couple to look after Mark while they are away.  Mark's family keeps moving from home to home to home.  But because his parents are so rich they don`t move anything.  They just buy new furniture for their next house.  In the book, Mark moves to New Hampshire.  His new house has a forest in its backyard and an awesome view of the White Mountains.  There is a lot of snow too.

Mark didn't want to move at all so he acts bad in school.  His science teacher Mr. Maxwell thinks Mark is just a slacker and a kid who doesn't care at all about school.  When Mr. Maxwell tells Mark about an event called "A Week in the Woods," Mark acts like he doesn't want to go at all.

In "A Week in the Woods," all the 5th graders spend a week in a forest for camping.  After a while Mark feels bad about being bad in school so he tries to start acting good.  But Mr. Maxwell has had enough and ignores him.  When "A Week in the Woods" finally begins, Mark gets suspended and
he runs away in the woods.  Read this story to find out what happens next.
