Echo Mountain by Lauren Wolk
June 1, 2020 (by Jessica Girotti)
This was my first book by Lauren Wolk but it won't be my last. I read this to my 9 and 12 year olds and we all loved it, even my 9 year old who is usually more of an adventure story kind of guy. Complex characters, compassion and grit along with completely immersive descriptions of rustic life on a mountain in Maine during the Great Depression. If you liked My Side of the Mountain and Little House on the Prairie I highly recommend this one. Perfect for ages 9 and up.
