You’ll love joining Avery in the adventures of The Glass Castle where the setting from The Chronicles of Narnia meets the action from Alice in Wonderland.
The king is growing old and is concerned about who will replace him. His new wife wants to produce an heir to the throne. The only problem? Thirteen years ago, the king’s first wife gave birth to a son, and no one knows for sure what happened to him. Rumors swirl throughout the castle. For the new queen, the solution as simple: dispose of all the thirteen-year-olds in the kingdom.
Except, it isn’t that easy.
Avery and her friends won’t go quietly. Avery, Kate, Tuck, and Kendrick take charge of the underground network of kidnapped children, inspiring them to believe that their past does not dictate their future and pledging to do the hardest thing of all. . .reunite the children with the homes they left behind.
When they discover that one among them might be the child of a man who wants them dead, will everything they work for be lost?
The Glass Castle is absolutely enthralling!!
What I liked: I’ve been putting off reading The Glass Castle because I was afraid I wouldn’t love it as much as I love the cover copy. I was wrong. I couldn’t put it down once I’d picked it up!
I loved the characters, the adventure, and the audience. Avery, Kate, Tuck, and Kendrick are terrific, imperfect, teens you’ll want your middle-grader emulating. Even when they make mistakes they maturely deal with the consequences and results. This is one adventure you won’t mind your kids delving into, in a time when you never know what they’re reading you can rest assured The Glass Castle is free of foul language, magic, and steam! The Glass Castle is written for middle-grade Christians, the hyms, verses, and reminders throughtout this book are absolutely wonderful!
What I didn’t like: There’s a little more romance than I’d prefer in The Glass Castle BUT there’s nothing, except some stolen glances and blushing.
I really enjoyed The Glass Castle! It’s a great book to share with your middle-grade and teen readers!
