Gingersnap by Patricia Reilly Giff (J)

Gingersnap

Patricia Reilly Giff (Juvenile Historical Fiction)

After her brother Rob is reported missing in action during WWII, young Jayna, along with her turtle and a ghost, set out from upstate New York to Brooklyn in hopes of finding her grandmother.  Gingersnap is a quick read, making it ideal for elementary-aged kids. Just shy of 150 pages, it doesn’t allow the reader much of an opportunity to get to know or become connected with the characters, but a happy ending during a wartime book is always a plus.  With included soup recipes, this book is wonderful for the body and soul.

Rating: 4/5
