Check out this recommendation for an Adventure book perfect for literature circles — Hatchet. My son read this in school and loved it. The story is about Brian Robertson, who is on his way to visit his father when the tiny bush plane that he is on crashes in the Canadian wilderness. You'll also find new teacher recommendations for historical fiction, fantasy and realistic fiction books.
Francine Rivers, a Christian, historical fiction author. This is my favorite all time author, favorite books. I reccommend these more than any others. In turn I have reread them more than any other book as well.
Told from the perspective of a five-year-old boy, Room is the story of a mother and her son who are being held captive in an 11x11 foot shed. This creative novel is eerily captivating. Jack's naive narration brings a light-heartedness to an otherwise appalling story. One of the best books I've read in a long time!
Beata: One of the most romantic, touching, moving, heartbreaking (in some places)and inspiring Christian historical romances I have ever read! Very touching story focused on faith and redemption. I love it!
