A classic tale for children and teens. It is also a beautiful, albeit sad, story about growing up wheter you want to or not. It should be required reading for al middle school age children. I am in my eighties and still enjoyed it. Well written, factual and beutifully told. It shows that bad things happen but we can grow out of the ashes and move on.
There have been objections made because of language. Facee it people, 5th graders are little anials trying to become people. They say the wrong things and forget it the next minute. Admittedly the heroine's parents are not Christian parents, or really parents at all, but the Lord seems to have brought this girl into the life of this boy to bring him into the Light for himself and his sister. Don't question how God works even if it is not your way. His ways are higher.... Some of the greatest literature of the world offends the Christian sensibilities but as with fairy tales, you label them as inappropriate and fictiuonal and get the most out of them.
