Book Review: Mayne Island Skeletons by Amber Harvey
Mayne Island Skeletons is not only a fun read for
children 9 to 12 years of age but it also teaches many valuable lessons—such as
how to be a good friend.
Mary Magdalene Sommers’ mother is attentive and reliable;
whereas, Brent Green is the son of a neglectful parent. Despite these
differences, Magda values Brent’s friendship. She continues to believe in his good
character even in the face of negative public opinion. In fact, she works
tirelessly to prove his innocence and to secure his safety.
Through Magda’s example children are empowered to solve
their own mysteries and resolve their own problems.
