Last night, I stayed up until 2 am finishing "Icefall" by Matthew J. Kirby. When I first picked this YA book up I quickly dubbed it a “boy book” judging by its cover. That’s what I get for generalizing (note the long blond braid on the hooded stranger's shoulder). This is a great read for anyone, boy or girl, because the main character, Solvieg, is a young girl struggling to find her voice in the world, a concept that everyone can relate to.
Question: "My child is in 4th grade and is already reading books located in the Teen section. Should I be concerned?"
