I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way. I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.
Friends, Leah, Nicole and Hayley are looking forward to their beach vacation. When they arrive, they find an unappealing surprise. A whale has washed up on the shore and the police are investigating! Someone has poached teeth from the whale. When the girls notice some men acting strange, they decide to act.
This is a great story for middle readers. It brings to light the important issue of poaching that isn't usually discussed with kids. The writing is simple but exciting, helping kids dig into the issue. The characters in the story are easy to relate to and go through the process to ultimately make the right decisions and bring the poachers the attention of the authorities. With a great message and great characters, A Sandy Grave makes an exciting and educational story.
