Middle School / Books Rule!
Recommended books for grades 5-8



The story: Ren is afraid her family is about to fall apart–kind of like the tiny town of Fortune, Mississippi: once the pearl button capital of the world, now practically a ghost town. Angry at her mother, Ren runs away from home and hides out at the old/new bed and breakfast hotspot known as the “former Fortune Consolidated School” where she finds a lot more than she ever expected…just as proprietor Hildy’s life work seems to be falling apart. Can Ren and her new friends find the treasure hidden so long ago and save Hildy from ruin?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: No explosions here, but by the end you’ll be rooting for Ren, her family, old lady Hildy, and even cute-but-kind-of-stuck-up Tucker (Hildy’s grandson). If you like stories about regular people and the things that can happen to them, take a look at this one!
