This is a list of vocabulary words from the novel The Boy Who Dared. There are a couple hundred words with page numbers on this list that I have compiled. All words are higher level and suited for middle grades or beyond.
Use context (e.g., the overall meaning of a sentence or paragraph; a word's position or function in a sentence) as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
