I have divided up the novel into four equal parts and have provided a quick "who, what, when, where" matching quiz assessment for readers. I like to do this when students are completing a self-directed novel study for me to ensure they are reading the piece and to see their basic understanding. This novel I have used for both my grade seven and grade eight class, but can easily see it fit in with some grade nine readers as well. Great piece for students to understand the hardships of many other young people in other countries. Others I have in my reading selection for this unit are Milk of Birds, Now is Time for Running, Rebels by Accident, Thunder of Kandahar and Trash.
