Boxcar Kid Sparks Confidence

Our Gaggle of Girls has written a great review of Norma Charle’s recent book, Boxcar Kid, which is a junior and teen historical fiction novel. There’s a lot to be said about a historical fiction novel that can really mesh fictional tale together with a solid historical background. Our friends at Our Gaggle of Girls had many good things to say about that:

Boxcar Kid“Norma Charles has a wonderful skill for creating characters – each of the main characters jumps off the page, pulling the reader into the story. Facts merge with fiction as we learn about horse care, doctors, schooling, and the object of Luc’s fascination – bicycles! … This is a great read to reinforce the value of family, of being confident in yourself, and in learning some history, too!”Our Gaggle of Girls
