City of Ember book review #iLoveMG

Welcome to #iLoveMG where I share middle grade books that my fifth graders recommend. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

City of Ember

Recommended by Louis

The Wolf's Curse by Jessica Vitalis is about a young boy named Gauge. If you liked the Golden Compass, this book shares a lot of the same themes and settings but has a completely different plot.

The book centers around the city of Bouge by the Sea, a small town with a corrupt mayor that lives in fear of people like Gauge that can see the Wolf. Eventually in the book, after Gauge’s Grandfather dies, Gauge is forced to come out of hiding and release his Grandfather’s soul to the Sea in the Sky. Before he is caught by the townsfolk he is rescued by Roux, the blacksmith’s apprentice. Together they try to solve the mystery of the wolf and tell the truth about the corrupt mayor. 

Overall I think the Wolf's Curse is a good book for anyone that likes fantasy.
