5.0 stars by ca2mccarthy

i read this book (Iam a parent) because i always read the books assigned to my kids so i can "go over" the material with them. well, this is one of the best books that i have read as well. it is assigned in 5th grade (usually in TAG or gifted programs) and also in 8th grade! the content is probobly too over a fifth graders head, no matter how "smart" they are, but for an 8th grader it is perfect. i would recommend this to ur child even if the school doesnt require it. there are 2 other books that go with it. and the author louis lowry is a newberry medal winner for childrens lit. i also recommend "number the stars" about the jews that had to hide.. its great reading
