What I'm Reading Now
We Ride Upon Sticks is set in Danvers, Massachusetts and follows the 1989 Danvers Falcons who are trying to get their girls field hockey team to the state finals. They are willing to do just about anything--including tapping into some dark powers. For an added twist, team captain, Abby Putnam, is a decendent of Ann Putnam who was an accuser during the Salem witch Trials. This novel is a great companion to Arthur Miller's The Crucible, which we'll read in English 11!
