Review: Although they only see each other during the summers, Wyatt and his friend Augie are close, and this summer they are building a fort. Free wood helps them finish the fort sooner, followed by nights spent cooking over a campfire and days spent hunting and fishing. Then two bullies discover their fort and sully this best summer ever. But when the bullies also start messing with Gerard, a kid who can’t defend himself, Wyatt and Augie set out to befriend and defend Gerard, someone unlike them but worthy of their friendship.
