the year we sailed the sun coverThe Year We Sailed the Sun by Theresa Nelson
Recommended for: Grades 4-7

The year is 1912 and Julia Delaney is being sent to The House of Mercy orphanage with her sister Mary.  Their brother Bill swears to the girls that he’ll come for them soon, but trouble with the local gang is slowing him down.  The story moves easily between Julia’s struggle to keep the family together and the web of corruption that spreads over the whole city because of Mr. Egan and his Rats.  Fans of historical fiction will love this one.
