The Night Gardener


Although we liked  Nazi Hunters and I'll Give You the Sun, The Night Gardener will have more of a mass appeal to the students we teach. We were more engaged with the characters in The Night Gardener than with the other two books.  The writing in I’ll Give You the Sun was captivating, however we really don’t believe a fourteen year old would sound and behave like that no matter how mature and eccentric he was.  The Night Gardener gets our vote.
