Books For Middle-School to Adult Readers

"This book was the best book I read over the summer. I usually don't read historical fiction. However, it was very interesting because of how the main character, Silas, lived within so many different cultures throughout the book. I liked how the author took a few pages to begin some chapters to explain each culture...I would recommend this book to anyone that likes adventure, emotion, and pure historical facts. Overall, this book was amazing and I couldn't put it down!"
