I am very excited to share that I wrote today's post on The Nerdy Book Club blog. My post is a retro review of one of my favorite middle grade books ever, Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene.
Fun fact: when I was a camp counselor for girls ages 12-14, I kept a small shelf of books in the cabin for my campers to read during rest hour and pre-lights out quiet time. Summer of My German Soldier was always the top pick.
Please head over to The Nerdy Book Club--a great resource for teachers, librarians, and readers alike--to read what I have to say about Summer of My German Soldier and the value of historical fiction in young readers' lives.
