Day 13: A fictional book.
I got this book from my aunt when she was cleaning out her classroom, probably when I was 11 or 12 years old. I was drawn to the book as it it was a mystery story, a brother and sister searching for a treasure, as well as two children who vanished many years ago. The book had an element of fantasy that intrigued me, but what hooked me on it was the weaving of transcendentalist thinkers and ideology into the story. It was very different from anything else I had read at the time, so it stuck with me. I still have the same copy I got all those years ago, and take time to read it about once a year. It’s a great book for children, but I would recommend it to anyone.
