The true story of a whale attacking a ship at sea in the Pacific in 1820. There were actually survivors in this tragedy even though they floated in the ocean for three months! When I read the synopsis on this one I was immediately interested. Both my husband and I plan to read this one!
This is a story of an 11-year-old boy who lives in a settlement in Canada of runaway slaves. Elijah is seen as weak until he tracks down a thief.
A great book about a boy in the 1950's. Filled with humor and adventure! Definitely not to be missed.
I read The Westing Game out loud to the boys a few years back during our mystery unit. Great book...the only mystery story to win the Newbery medal! I think it has been long enough that my youngest will be able to read it on his own and enjoy it all over again.
The story of a Quaker boy and an Abenaki Indian and the encounter they have in 1777.
I am reading this one right now. It is a story set in the Elizabethan era of a girl who witnesses her father's murder and then has to hide among the choir boys in a cathedral. Fascinating and gripping!
Any other book suggestions for tween boys?
