Good vs Evil in the style of Philip Pullman

The Flame in the Mist - Kit Grindstaff

Looking for a good book for your middle grade student to read this summer?  Consider The Flame in the Mist.


Wonderful new story by a debut author to watch closely. A middle grade good vs evil. Not your average good vs evil...the mist is used to control.

Jemma is 13 year old girl. She isn't perfect, a fact which will make her endearing to kids. Being a child, she (as well as us, the readers) is not always certain who is good and who is evil.

The characters in this book are fantastic. You'll fall in love with her two rats!
