bookshelves: for-classes
Recommended for: Victorian or children's literature lovers
Read in July, 2012

I made a lot of connections between this 1857 English novel and Robert Cormier's 1977 novel The Chocolate War. I wrote a 20 page paper comparing the two and how they portray Catholic schools negatively, and are really novels for adults, rather than children.
