Lexile level 660
As the light wanes and the smell of burning leaves replaces the scent of freshly cut grass, it’s the perfect time to read Cecelia Galante’s The World from Up Here. The natural tendency at this time of year is to give into our fears as darkness nears, but Galante encourages each reader to fan the flicker of bravery that resides within each one of us through two sixth grade characters, Wren and Silver. Together they not only face Witch Weatherly who resides in their town on Creeper Mountain, they also find the courage to face the fear that resides within themselves.
