More White Pine!

Take a Break from Performance Tasks and READ!

Here's another White Pine book to consider
The Pain Eater by Beth Goobie:  What if one person was responsible for taking on the pain of everyone else?  This is the subject of a collaborative class write for students in English class;  however,  it's also a story that starts to parallel the life experiences of Maddy who, along with 3-4 other students in the class, know about the pain she suffered and that she is determined to keep a secret.  But the secret continues to come to the surface over and over again and Maddy's starting to realize that she can't be a victim any more.
