A heartwarming tale of survival and adventure featuring two best friends - a girl and her dog.
Max the puppy has fallen in love. From the moment Emi walks into the shelter with her long black hair and bright smile, he knows she's meant to be his forever person. Emi's family has just moved to Maine from Japan, and he can tell that she is in desperate need of a friend like Max. After Emi adopts him, Max goes to live with her high up on a mountain homestead where he explores his new world and spends his days annoying the other family pet, a Maine coon cat named Red. So when Emi goes missing, Max knows that it's up to him to find her, no matter where in the Maine woods she may be. Accompanied by Red, Max takes off on a journey that will challenge him with wild animals, hunger, and an impossible trail to track - but he'll never give up until his girl is safe. This heartwarming tale of survival and friendship by Meika Hashimoto, the author of The Trail, is Homeward Bound for a new generation.

Review quote

Praise for The Trail: Readers will be drawn into Toby's exciting journey and empathize with him as he learns an important lesson about forgiving yourself and determining what's important in life and then fighting for it. - Booklist Readers will relish experiencing the dangers of living on the wild side. Toby's trip of self-discovery and adventure matures him into a more confident, less negative person who is finally able to forgive himself and feel happiness. This action-packed tale of a boy fighting the elements and his own negative self-image never falters. - School Library Journal A must-read for anyone looking for a great adventure novel. I could not put it down. - Roland Smith, author of Peak The Trail brings Toby's epic hike fully to life. It's a journey that's as much in the heart as on the map, and it's not one you want to miss. - Michael Northrop, New York Times bestselling author of TombQuest: Book of the Dead and Trapped In The Trail, Hashimoto has created an honest and tense tale that reminds us that there's more to survival than just living. - Eliot Schrefer, two-time National Book Award nominee for Endangered and Threatened 2018 Maine Student Book Award Masterlist
