Childhood favorite!

I haven't read this book in years, but as a child it was one of my favorites! Every word I read I could imagine the scenery in my mind. I've tried to find it for so long and I'm so happy it's on here! I'd love to read it to my step daughter. :)

Avid Reader, aspiring writer ,

Please, please read!

The first time I ever read this book was in 6th grade. Ever since then, I have read this book almost every year (except 7th grade). I cannot tell you how amazing this book is. It's been 7 years now and I still learn something new each time! As a child I related to the characters age wise. As a teenagers I understood why bullies were the way they were. And now, as a young adult, I see the historical aspect. I strongly recommend that you read this book no matter how old or young you are! Thank you Mary Downing Hahn for writing this amazing book!
