Book Review 47:  Stolen Children by Peg Kehret

Book Review 47: Stolen Children by Peg Kehret

Peg Kehret’s books seem to always be on the Mark Twain list like every year, kind of like Mary Downing Hahn’s books do. While they’ve not been my favorites in the past, and I alwasy feel they tend to have some similar trends in them, I decided this was a really good book. The main… Read more »
