No movie could do credit to this very interesting story. The underdog wins but how he wins is the wonder of it all.

I thought I would list a few of my YA books in case you want something for your kids to read. This book is aimed at middle school aged children. I read it in college for a YA lit class. I thought that it was very cute. It is the story of a boy wrongly accused of a crime. He spends a summer at a juvenile detention camp. He blames his misfortunes on a family curse. The story of the strange labor camp (where they dig holes all day) eventually comes full circle... Highly recommend for your pre-teen BOYS.

Better than the movie. This book held my interest. I thought it wouldn't because its basically a young adult book (I'm no longer a young adult). I enjoyed reading this book.

A great story about connections and how our lives are affected by our ancestors, ourselves and who we help and who we let help us. Great children's book and even better than the movie.
