Wreath, by Judy Christie.


Wreath Wisteria Willis is an orphan. She's never known her father, and her mother has just died from the cancer she's had for years. Wreath is heartbroken, but she and her mother Frankie have been preparing for this. Months ago, Frankie gave Wreath a card for the foster agency, and told her to call and inform them that she will soon need a foster home. Frankie is worried that Big Fun, her abusive boyfriend, will catch up to her daughter, who has evidence for his crime.

Wreath loves her mother. She really does. But she doesn't think she can trust the foster care people, nice as they may be. After all, no one else she's ever trusted has come through. So soon after the death of her mother, Wreath runs away to Landry, Louisiana, her mother's childhood home. Here she will complete her senior year of high school, get accepted to a good college, get a job, and avoid notice. Why must she avoid notice? She's on the run from Big Fun (who certainly isn't fun), and oh yes, one other thing. She's living in a junkyard.

Wreath lives on peanut butter crackers and water bought from the Dollar Barn in town. She takes showers at the state park, and sometimes cleans herself up in the library's bathroom.


Wreath becomes successful at school, and the clothes she wears (foraged from old trailers in the junkyard) are all the rage among the popular girls. She gets a job at a store in town. Wreath slowly starts to make connections, and she indirectly brings an entire town together. Along the way, she even discovers something huge about her father. Wreath starts to open up to those around her, and they start asking questions about where she lives.


Then Wreath disappears for two days. Someone finds her in the junkyard. Now he knows her secret. Will he tell on Wreath, or will she disappear again? Or will he find something else in the junkyard?

Its about a man named Syme who works for the police. One day he comes across a man claiming to be an anarchist. The man leads Syme to tha anarchist hideout and Syme ends up being voted the roll of Thursday. He than meets the other anarchists that have been voted as days of the week and discovers that not all of them are who and what they claim to be.

"Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie" By Jorden Sonnenblick - About a 13 year old drummer who's 4 year old brother is diagnosed with cancer. The novel is funny, tragic, and relatable to many ages. "First They Killed My Father" By Loung Ung - About a child's experience before, throughout, and after the Cambodian genocide. This memoir is tragic, yet it is written through a child's innocent perspective.
