Ethan's Secret

I received a copy of ETHAN’S SECRET by Patrick Hodges in exchange for an honest review.  It is the second book in the James Madison series.  I have not read the other book, but I was able to follow this installment. 

This is a romance geared toward middle-grade readers.  I found that interesting.  I read a lot of middle grade novels during my college years working toward being a teacher, and they don’t usually focus on romance.  Altogether it was cute.  I remember in junior high and high school, my friends were reading adult romance novels to get that romance fix.  When I was student teaching, the kids (as young as 5th grade!) were reading TWILIGHT.  I like how this is an age-appropriate romance.

Of course there is much more to the story than just romance.  Junior high is a tumultuous time and Patrick Hodges captured that essence well.  I am recommending this to my teacher friends and friends with junior high children.
