About this title

Synopsis:

Todd is living a very troubled life, which causes him to be involved with a gang and do poorly at school, but after he buries a dead fox, a fox-spirit offers him the chance to become a fox himself and Todd must decide what is the best thing for him to do in his situation.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9?In this intriguing novel, Rubinstein combines a compelling family story with spiritual fantasy. Tod, 12, lives with his sisters, mother, and grandmother in a small Australian town. Unable to make sense of his father's desertion, he becomes fascinated by the surrounding countryside and by the fox that prowls there. Eventually, he meets a spirit fox that allows him to transform into an animal himself. Tod relishes his experiences as a fox and appreciates the insight they provide. As a human, he is threatened and courted by a gang; teased; and lost in a family filled with clashing, independent spirits. As an animal, there are no decisions for him to make and he fits in with the world. On the other hand, the violence of wild creatures conflicts with his human feelings. His dilemma is riveting, but Rubinstein's strong characterizations are the true highlight of this book. All of the characters are well drawn and true to life. The ending is dramatic and unresolved: after a friend dies in a gang-related accident, Tod is torn between facing that death or embracing the fox world forever. Readers never learn what he chooses. The lack of resolution may frustrate some readers, but it is thought-provoking and will provide excellent material for discussion.?Steven Engelfried, West Linn Public Library, OR
