Crossing Stones by Helen Frost

Crossing StonesCrossing Stones by Helen Frost

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Helen Frost has written a compelling, sweet and sad novel about two families that live across the river from each other during World War I and how the war affects each family member. Frost uses three characters (Muriel, Emma and Ollie) in her novel in verse to tell the story of war, soldiers, death, and the fight for women's rights and peace. I highly recommend this beautiful novel, the verse is so great and the stories of four young people will stay with you long after you close the book. I loved all the research Helen Frost did, I learned so much about this time in our history. A must read!
