Stone River Crossing
By Kathi Appelt, Newbery Award-winning author
Crack open the cover of this book, and step into the worlds of two different communities—that of the Choctaw, and that of the Plantation. Separating them is a river, but that is not the only thing that divides them. Tim Tingle masterfully shines a light on both worlds, and in his young characters he manages to illuminate the human heart in all of its various bits and pieces. This is storytelling at its best.
