Gone-Away Lake

By Elizabeth Enright
Level 6

This Newbery Honor Book, written in 1954, is wonderful! Two siblings go to the country to spend the summer with their cousin. They end up discovering a mostly abandoned community next to a dried-up lake where they befriend two elderly siblings. I love how this book treats family and shows the majesty and beauty of nature. The writing is fantastic and has a rich, varied vocabulary.
