Leaving Fischers- Margaret Haddix


This is a realistic fiction novel. The girl that this book centers around is the new kid in school and looking to fit in. It deals with the ideas of cult-like religions, and blind faith. This is another book that I would recommend perhaps for individual reading, but not as a whole class read. This book is most appropriate for 7th-9th grade based off of content and skill level.
