Do you know this book?
I just finished listening to a great book! Then I went out and bought two paperback copies so that I could give it to others! This is a book the whole family would enjoy reading together when the youngest is about 7 or 8. It has love, friendship and fun, and I found myself laughing out loud at some of the situations. It also includes greed, intolerance and death that made me cry. The characters are very real and memorable as is the entire story built around an historical occurence that took place in 1912 in Maine. Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy by Gary Schmidt was a Newbery Runner Up and a 2005 Prinz Award Honor Book. Try it and let me know your opinion!
