Maybe a Fox

The Teen Review: "Maybe a Fox" by Kathi Appelt, Alison McGhee

Cover: 'Maybe a Fox'


A compelling and emotional (almost depressing) novelette about two sisters. Plus a semi plot involving a boy and his older brother. It's the type of book that has you wanting to get to the end and see how everything turns out. Maybe books make you cry all the time, or maybe you think crying is for weaklings, but no matter who you are this book will tug on your heartstrings and play a song. Whatever that means. Just read it. Trust me.
