Where the Red Fern Grows is a novel written by Wilson Rawls in 1961 about a boy who buys and trains two Redbone Coonhound hunting dogs Love this book! Sad book and movie I cried watching the movie . Read the book
A Child Called "It" Very sad. I don't know how the woman called herself a mother. The Lost Boy & A Man Named Dave are also very good books. I literally read A Child Called It and The Lost Boy in the same sitting.
Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck. Come to think of it.anything by Steinbeck. One can always learn more about writing by rereading Steinbeck. Even after teaching this one about 50 times, I still love it.
