Here is the book description: "Peter and Pax have been together ever since Peter rescued the orphaned kit, but when Peter’s father enlists in the military, he sends Peter to live with his grandfather and forces the boy to release Pax back into the wild. The separation leaves the young fox confused, and the boy heartbroken. Each are tested to their limits as they journey to reunite in a country on the brink of war."
