Criss Cross

Author:Lynne Rae Perkins
Reading Level: 6th and up

Even though it took me some effort to get into the main part of the story, once I adjusted my own mood to fit the text's, the characters came alive and all the little scenes brought quite a bit of enjoyment: from their humor, insights, or authenticity. Definitely a book speaking for a specific audience -- and there is no predicting whom it might attract.

  1. This was an awesome book! Coming from a kid this may not matter as much, but I loved it! As a Dorthy Canfield Fisher Award I was "forced" to read it for school. Instead of the normal boring textbooks, we read Criss Cross. i got totally into it. 5 stars!
