Since I did not read that much this week, I will turn my post into a What Am I Reading?/Mini Review post of what I finished this week.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
I did not know anything about this book before choosing to read it. Imagine my surprise when what seemed to be a realistic fiction novel morphed into a fairytale/fantasy. I enjoyed reading about Hazel's journey to into the unknown world of the White Witch (yes, like the witch from Narnia) to save her best friend, Jack who has disappeared. Although presented with dangerous and difficult obstacles, Hazel never turned back or gave up....nice example of "girl power". The book contains 320 pages. I think students in grades 4 through 7 would like Breadcrumbs best.
