Avery’s Battlefield is a sweet historical novel for middle school students. The story follows two years in the life of Avery, a young teen boy, during the Civil War. This book would be a great way to introduce kids to that tumultuous time in American history.
The Woman in the Trees is a story of the apparition, but also the story of a community and family dynamics. The pain and trials of these immigrants is tangible. Adele’s struggles to share the Good News are also realistically portrayed. This is a wonderful story for a family read aloud or for older children, teens, or adults to read on their own. It is appropriate for ages 10 and up.
