It's not easy being 16, especially when you've just discovered that you are suffering from leukemia. Mike Rankin decides that the way he's going to deal with his coming struggle against the disease is by physically testing his strength and resourcefulness. He's not going to submit himself to a barrage of debilitating hospital treatments without first seeing if he can survive a winter hunt in the Swan Hills of Alberta, where he aims to track and kill a white- PDFtailed buck. He secretly heads off into the bush, defying his parents, only to discover that, like the buck, he is both hunter and hunted. And, when he finally corners his quarry, his decision whether to kill the buck or not becomes a sign to him of his resolve in fighting his disease. Hunter in the Dark is a powerful novel sure to touch young readers with its moving portrait of a young man determined to survive. (Ages 10 and older) —Jeffrey Canton
