Wolf Creek is reliable. Everyone looks the same, everyone thinks the same, and everything stays the same. For Nora Tucker, aspiring journalist, it’s a little bit frustrating. She’s looking for some excitement m – by when two dangerous convicts escape from the town’s maximum security prison, she gets a little more than she bargained for. At first, the high speed, high-octane thrill is exciting. But people show their true colors in difficult situations, and Nora’s learning a lot more than she anticipated about her beloved small town. As usual, Kate Messner’s writing is engaging, thoughtful, and so helpful in helping younger readers to understand big, complicated issues that they hear about on the radio or the playground but don’t fully understand. Add this to your shelf of Messner “must buy” titles. #stabsummerreading #middlegradebooks #katemessner #kidlit #ireadya #raisingreaders
