Do you like novels in verse? Do you know what a novel in verse is? It's a book -- fiction or nonfiction, written like poetry. I just did booktalks and was reminded again how much I like this style.
Rubber Houses is heartbreaking. Kit's younger brother is diagnosed with terminal cancer. How can cancer take a vibrant, baseball-loving 9 year old boy? Kit and her parents try to live without Buddy. The grieving process is shared through the seasons of baseball that Buddy loved. Sad and realistic.......hopefully you won't experience the sadness that this family does.
