I especially love books that embrace outdoor adventure and glimpses into other cultures, not to mention teens overcoming odds by being brave. This ticks all those boxes, and I think is quite inspirational. ( )

This book is about a girl who is trying to survive war in her country. She lost everyone in her family except her little sister. She promises her father before he dies that she will take care of her family and she gets worried that she wont be able to keep her promise. Everyone and everything that she ever loved gets taken away from her. I would not recommend this book for students younger than 8-9 grade. It would be a great way to introduce to students the ideas that war effects everyone, even children.

Gabriel, a young girl in Guatemala, loses everything and survives by climbing trees and chasing her dreams.

This book starts out very detailed and not necessarily jumping into the action. It could take a few chapters to get into for some kids. While it is a YA book, it hits on some very serious scenes the protagonist witnesses and could be a strong trigger for kids who have had trauma. That concern aside, it is amazing that this author took a story he heard of a real girl's experience and turn it into this beautifully passionate version of overcoming the toughest of times. The action doesn't stop and the scenes are vivid. The main character is so completely lovable and rooting for her comes easy. The pace is perfect; this author has an amazing gift of taking a situation and making it a story that hits hard. This book could be used when doing world history focus (6th grade) and discussing civil war in foreign countries, rights of people in America vs. Abroad. This would make a good read aloud with the right group as conversation could enrich the experience. In a theme of overcoming hard times to become stronger (and other SEL themes) this novel would be great. It's accessible to lower level readers while having enough depth to reach higher level readers. The figurative language is affluent, beautiful, and works well for its purpose. This book could easily also fit into the 6th grade focus on figurative language. It is important for young people to see life from different parts of the world in order to reflect on their own life and since this story is loosely based on a true story the author was told, it has a lot of reality to it. I would also use this to discuss the conversation of genocide, civil war, conflict, hope, identity, and current events. It has the potential to be powerful and changing. ( )

Tree girl is a horrifying story that is well written. It seemed to be a quick read and powerful. The topic of genocide in Guatemala was one I knew little about and found interesting to read more about at the end of the book. There are many implications for classroom learning with this book. A middle school social studies class would work well. Learning and discussing war, perseverance, the struggles to survive traumatic events, and Guatemalan history are all topics that would work in a classroom.
