Flynn hates the outdoors. Always has. He barely pays attention in his Outdoor Ed class. He has no interest in doing a book report on Lost in the Barrens . He doesn't understand why anybody would want to go hiking or camping. But when he gets lost in the wilderness behind his parents' friends' house, it's surprising what he remembers--insulate your clothes with leaves, eat snow to stay hydrated, build a shelter, eat lichen--and how hopelessly inept he is at survival techniques.
