Love, not just blood, makes families

by LisaLynne on Apr 2, 2008

This book is a classic for pre-teens and teens. It has adventure, love of the outdoors, and a lot to teach about the meaning of family, without being preachy or moralistic. The Melendy family of 4 kids, adds another boy and learns that there is cruelty and death. They also learn that these do not necessarily scar a child. This book has beautifully drawn characters who grow and seem real. It is a book that kids will read over and over. Even adults will re-read it as they get older with fond memories. I think a young reader would enjoy it without the other Melendy books, but it is even better if they have the ones that went before it. Either way, this is a book to savour and treasure for both girls and boys.
