And it is also Cassie’s story—Cassie Logan, an independent girl who discovers over the course of an important year why having land of their own is so crucial to the Logan family, even as she learns to draw strength from her own sense of dignity and self-respect.

Winner of the Newbery Medal, this remarkably moving novel has impressed the hearts and minds of millions of readers.
