In this section of my podcast of “Pushing Back,” Boone is still entirely on his own, has lot to figure out, and doesn’t have many tools to work with. After how badly Nancy’s first visit to his house ended (Chap 12), he gets a surprise offer from Mr. Everett at the end of Chap 13 and things start to get interesting again. In chapter 14, released today, Boone goes back to school (in a way), and his relationship with his neighbor Mr. Everett keeps changing. The old man acknowledges Boone in a couple of surprising ways.
