Throwback Thursday is a new feature at Reading Lark. We'll still be doing some Book Boyfriend Posts and Book BFF Posts on Thursdays as well, but the Larks wanted a little variety on Thursdays. Throwback Thursday will allow us to celebrate some of the reads we loved way back when...
Across Five Aprils
By: Irene Hunt
Release Date: 1900
History was my first love, but reading was a close second. As a kid, I loved combining my two passions. I remember having to read this novel in one of my classes. I found Jethro's story to be enthralling - even as a middle school student. It truly saddens me that so many people who were forced to read this one ended up hating it. I found the story to be poignant and well researched.
