I'm reading this for the Reading Club challenge.
A dramatic story that shakes up young Joe to such a degree that it shifts hie desires for his future; he realizs that it's better to have ties than to just float about the orld, doing what one desires and having no one to tell him what to do. But then, with no one holding you back, there's no one to know when you've really gone.
