I often read Middle Grade fiction because I’m still a kid on the inside.
I just read Conch Bearer by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.
As you can guess by the author’s name, the story takes place in India.
The book about a poor boy, Anand, who is given the responsibility of caring for a conch shell that has magical powers.
The plot is so exciting that I read all 265 pages at one sitting.
I also learned something about the culture of India.
I hope to read more books by this author in the future..
