The Outcasts by John Flanagan

Reviewed By: N.W.
In this book the main character, Hal, lost his father when he was very young. He has one friend named Stig who's father was a thief and stole from his own people. Both of them are outcasts. Stig is bigger and can fight those (mainly Tersgood)who make fun of him. Hal is an inventor and a good navigator and not a large boy so he can't fight back. When brotherband training (how Skandians become real men) starts, Hal, Stig and 6 other boys who are also considered as outcasts form a group called the Herons. The other two groups, Sharks and Wolves, have 10 people and outnumber them. The Herons have to try to beat the Sharks and Wolves with courage and cunning.
Why I Picked it Up: I wanted to expand my reading "horizons".
Why I Finished It: This book is a little lengthy but, it is a very good book. It is not hard to finish and its exciting plot keeps you glued o your chair.
I’d Give this Book To: I would recommend it to anyone looking for a series about courage and bravery.

**Librarian Side Note** Did you know this is the first book in the series?? It's the beginning of the Brotherband Chronicles, which is written by the same author who wrote the Rangers' Apprentice! So far there are 3 books out in the Brotherband Chronicles, so get reading today!!
