Clip to ScrapBook #3

Sorry, I haven't read this one, but it is on my "must read" list. Just my humble opinion, but from my recollection it is a bit long for a class read. I love a long book for personal reading, but sometimes class novels just get too long.

A couple of other titles that are used in our seventh grade are: Red Scarf Girl, Watsons go to Birmingham and The Giver. I'm not a fan of the Giver for 7th graders. I think the themes are too mature and the story a bit confusing for a general class.
