I am pleased to offer you the following post written by Ellen, one of my sixth grade students.
Louisa and Maddie live in 2020 when their country is in war. They are running out of gas and fresh food. They are being sent away to a school called Country Side Manor (CMS). They don’t know where this school is or when they can come home, but Louisa knows that she will have the freedom her parents never gave her. Maddie is a little different; she doesn’t want freedom from her parents. She only wants to see her parents who are off fighting in the war.
The two girls get on the bus heading for school. There they meet a very paranoid girl, Eleanor. Eleanor thinks the school is some sort of trap for kids, but she has no proof. Louisa and Maddie also meet a sporty, “too cool” girl named Rosie. Rosie doesn’t talk to them; they just overhear her conversation with some other girls on the bus.
When they get to CMS, some pretty strange things happen. Is Eleanor right? Is this school a trap?
The Tomorrow Girls: Behind the Gate is a riveting read. This book hooks you from the start and never lets you go. It is definitely in my top ten books that I have read this year. The entire series consists of four books that are amazing! Eva Gray did a wonderful job writing these books!
THANK YOU, Ellen, for this post!
