Homesick is a book by Kate Klise. This book is at a 3.9 reading level, based off the Accelerated Reader scale, however, I feel it is more appropriate for 5th grade and up. I designed this unit based on standards from several different grade levels, however, the pages are easily adaptable and you can pick and choose which ones are relevant for your class and the level of your students.
