    "Finding Faith" by C.E. Edmonson is set during the Great Depression which is causing business problems for Faith Covington's father. She is forced to leave her comfortable life in New York City and go live with her mother in the Pennsylvania wilderness on her Aunt Eva’s farm. Faith’s previous education at a private girls’ school never could have prepared her for roughing it this way, or for the revelations she will soon discover about her family. Faith is stunned when she learns Aunt Eva is part Ojibwa and part Lenape—and so is Faith. As Faith adapts to her new environment and her aunt’s determination to follow “the way of the People,” she begins to discover new things about herself and her abilities. Faith soon befriends her aunt’s Lenape neighbor, twelve-year old Paul Crow. When the properties of Paul and Faith’s families are thought to be worth fortunes, Faith and Paul uncover a dangerous plot to force the Lenape people from their land.

    Darkness and Light by Kathryn Nichole

    Sun fairies both good and evil, monstrous creatures, adventure, magic, a talking strawberry bush, ant royalty, and an epic battle for the freedom of an entire world are in store in the wonderful young adult fantasy Victor and the Sun Orb by Amy Nielsen.

    Summer Sanctuary by Laurie Gray

    My Take: I really enjoyed this book. I was curious about it when I first read the summary because I homeschool my daughter and homeschooled my two older children all the way through school. Beside a few spots where the author made Matthew a little naive ( seemed that he was that way because of his being homeschooled, Most homeschooled children that I know are more away of the entire world than the average child their age) I thought that the author portrayed a homeschooled child very well. I was touched my how willing that Matthew was to watch after Dinah and how he tried to come up with solutions to her problems. They made a fine team. I was disappointed that he felt he needed to hide Dinah from his parents because I am sure that something could have been worked out that she wouldn't of had to go into child welfare. Over all I thought this was a very enjoyable books and I am going to give it to my daughter to read next.

    "Golden's Rule" by author C.E. Edmonson centers around fourteen-year-old Maddie Bergamo who seems to have it all— looks, brains, mad moves on the basketball court, a cute crush, and true friends. Her life right on track to make her eventual goals of the Olympics and a sports scholarship to her Ivy League dream school. But then life topples her neatly stacked plans, and Maddie finds herself in a fight for survival. As events spiral out of her control, Maddie receives an unexpected gift: an ancestor’s extraordinary diary of life as a slave girl. And what Maddie discovers within those pages changes her world forever.
