A service of the Walter Reed Middle School Library, Reed Reads Book Reviews are created by students and staff. Reviewers provide a rating: 5 = An absolute must read --- 4 = Very good, highly recommended --- 3 = Enjoyable --- 2 = Passable --- 1 = Don't bother. If you would like to join our panel of reviewers, see Mr. Bobrosky in the library. Anyone may post comments, allowing you to provide your own opinion and rating!
Told in 1840's Ireland, during the potato famine, this story, told by Nory Ryan, is about a family's struggle to survive and eventually make passage to America to escape the famine and the cruelty of the British. Good historical fiction. Reed Reads Score: 3.5
