Book for the Middle School Students

I just finished the neatest book for the middle to upper grade students. I work with students in RTI groups to help out the middle school ELA classes. During RTI this nine weeks, we read the novel Girl, Stolen by April Henry. I used the edition published by Scholastic. I don't normally like to read realistic fiction, but this one was very engaging.  The kids were hooked. I actually got complaints if we were out for snow or had to cancel RTI for testing. Warning!!! It did have some language which I turned into a quick lesson on formal and informal language.  My 7th and 8th graders were spellbound! Yes, even the boys.


This is one I'll be adding to the school's library collection!
