It's never too late for the adventure of a lifetime. In all the ways that matter, Mark is a rmal kid. He's got a dog named Beau and a best friend, Jessie. He likes to take photos and write haiku poems in his tebook. He dreams of climbing a mountain one day. But in one important way, Mark is t like other kids at all. Mark is sick. The kind of sick that means hospitals. And treatments. The kind of sick some people never get better from. So Mark runs away. He leaves home with his camera, his tebook, his dog, and a plan. A plan to reach the top of Mount Rainier. Even if it's the last thing he ever does. The Honest Truth is a rare and extraordinary vel about big questions, small moments, and one incredible journey.
