The Book of Story Beginnings by Kristin Kladstrup
A very interesting read about the power of the written word. When Oscar, a 14 year old boy writes in a journal titled "The Book of Story Beginnings"strange things start to happen to him. His family believes he has disappeared. Almost a century later, Lucy discovers this mysterious journal as well. After writing in the journal, Lily and Oscar are sent on a journey to save Lily's dad.
I think this novel would make an interesting read aloud for junior students.
