Teen Review: Where the Red Fern Grows

image

What’s it about? It’s about a boy named Billy Coleman who wants 2 coonhounds really bad. As he saves his money he gets his two coonhounds, which now he can have many hunting adventures with him. But sadly as they (dogs) get older and have more dangerous hunts the dogs die. 

Would you recommend this? Why or why not? Yes, because it’s a very mysterious story and very emotional too. Others would enjoy it I think.

Kayley R. (age 11) gives this book five stars.

What a loss the children’s and young adult literature world endured today. We will always remember you, Walter, your legacy of diversity and inclusivity, and, above all, that reading is not optional.

What a loss indeed. Walter Dean Myers wrote so many excellent books for kids and young adults. Do you have a favorite?
