it was amazing

I can see why this book is a Junior Library Guild selection. Strong character development and well paced story telling combine in this historical fiction middle grade book. Will definitely be book talking this one with students.

Karen I was at library, and just happened to check my GR, and saw your rec. The book was in, and I'm only 3 chapters from being done. Thanks so much for the recommendation!!

Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy) I think this would be a good read aloud.

Susan I completely agree! It's on my possible read aloud list for after Christmas. I just loved this book!I've book talked it in several 4th grade classrooms this year and it's getting passed around. :)

Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy) I would like to add Nick to books like Bud Not Buddy, Turtle in Paradise, Al Capone Does My Shirts - I think it adds another perspective of the 1930's.
