Has anyone taught this novel before? Did the students seem to enjoy it? I'm thinking of using it with my 7th graders.

I already use Where the Red Fern Grows.

These are my other options:
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Sounder
Call of the Wild
Island of the Blue Dolphins
The Great Gilly Hopkins

I've taught Tom Sawyer in fifth. It required a lot of vocab and background knowledge support, but they liked the story. I think it would be appropriate for 7th.

I've taught Sounder to several seventh graders. I personally love it, but I think it's a difficult one for a lot of today's 7th graders.

Blue Dolphins and Gilly Hopkins are too young, I think. Dolphins is a fourth grade book, and Gilly is 5th.

Call of the Wild is appropriate for seventh too.
