Pax - Sara Pennypacker


Pax by Sara Pennypacker is the story of a fox and his boy who are separated because of a war.

Plot 4/5: While the plot wasn't what I was expecting, I found this story to be very moving.

Characters 5/5: The characters are very well written.

World building 4/5: This story is mainly set in two places, the woods and one of the characters homes.

Pacing 4/5: The pacing is steady.

Writing 5/5: This story is written in the point of view of the fox and the fox's boy.

Overall 4.4: Although this story wasn't what I expected, it is a wonderfully written story of two lives that become separated and them trying to find each other again. 

Favorite Quote: 

"We all own a beast called anger. It can serve us: many good things come of anger at bad things; many unjust things are made just. But first we all have to figure out how to civilize it." - Vola
