    " I read this as a kid. Even through the haze of time and the fog of childhood memory it was still a better story then The Village. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 9/26/2013

    " This was one of my middle schooler's summer reading picks. I love historical fiction and this was an interesting twist on that genre. I enjoyed this quick read very much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ms. Foley | 9/10/2013

    " M. Night Shamalan totally stole his movie idea for "The Village" from this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoire | 4/8/2013

    " It kind of frustrated me how little she knew of the real world (i know that she grew up in the 80s but still) I also wondered if that was what the 60s were really like. I still liked the book though it was also my litrature circle book for school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Batya | 3/5/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Page | 11/1/2012

    " Jessie, a 12 year old girl thinks she is living in 1840 until a diphtheria epidemic breaks out in her town. Her mom tells her it is 1996 and sends her to get help. Very compelling story, written for 5th or 6th graders. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aerodriguez | 10/25/2012

    " awesome book when i was in third and loved it i reread this i was not as impressed "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 10/13/2012

    " This is an amazing story!! It's about a girl who lives in the 1800's and someone gets sick in her village. I won't spoil it, but if you liked M. Night Shymalan's "The Village" you will love this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ac | 9/4/2012

    " I love haddix books, but so far this one has left me least impressed. It seemed as though the plot was incredibly drawn out then ended abruptly! I found myself skimming paragraphs in an attempt to quicken the pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andreen | 7/4/2012

    " The book I believe The Village to be based on--or at least the book that helped me guess "the twist." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannahbanana098 | 2/11/2012

    " A good book about a strange life, but I thought it was a little too short, too quick of an ending. "

    " Interesting concept, as are many of Haddix's books, but I don't know that it was as believable as it could have been. For the future, it seems less... advanced technologically in some ways, although other ways were totally believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 4/8/2011

    " A simple, yet very interesting book. This book is the reason why nothing about Shyamalan's film, The Village, surprised me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 3/31/2011

    " This book. Was totally awesome. I read it when I was pretty young, but even in re-readings as I got older, the general storytelling of a girl leaving her Amish-like existence to find help curing an already-cured disease remained solid. "

    " Read it outloud to my class - they liked it a lot! "
