Shadrach's Crossing

Author: Avi
Reviewer's Age: Grade 8

The book Shadrach's Crossing is about a boy named Shad who tries to stop Kinlow, a powerful man, from smuggling illegal goods into his island in 1932. As a result of this smuggling, the islanders' lives are put to danger. This is a great adventurous novel. What I liked in the book was that Shad would never give up trying even though he was getting into trouble. What I didn't like was that Shad's friend would not try to stop Kinlow with him.
