Skylark and Wallcreeper

Skylark and Wallcreeper.jpgI loved Skylark and Wallcreeper (Little Bee/Yellow Jacket Books, 2018) by Anne O'Brien Carelli so much!

Two historical events (at least to children) in one book. Two twelve-year-olds: Collette in France in 1944; Lily in Queens in 2012. One is helping the resistance against the Nazis and the collaborators. The other is helping her grandmother and others in the nursing home deal with Hurricane Sandy and the aftermath. But the best part is that Lily is Collette's granddaughter and neither Lily, nor her mother, know about Collette's past. That changes through a circumstances of events and Lily's own determination.

The book is a CYBILS (Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary) AWARD Finalist and a Mighty Girl's 2018 Best Book of the Year.

I'm hoping we hear about more books from her soon.
