Middle school/young adult novels set in Quebec?
posted by dlugoczaj to media & arts (10 answers total)
My seventh-grader is going on a four-day school trip to Quebec with her French class. This trip is seven hours (one-way) on a bus, and I want to give her some good reading material. I thought she might enjoy some books that are actually set where she's going, but I don't know of any.
I'm looking for fiction for middle schoolers or young adults. My stepdaughter is a pretty sophisticated reader (right now, reading Lord of the Rings). She loves sci-fi/fantasy so it's fine if the books aren't exactly true-to-life, although good historical fiction would also be OK (major bonus points if you somehow manage to combine Quebec and time travel!). Books written in the past 20 years or so would probably be most welcome; she doesn't usually seem as into older books, LOTR notwithstanding.
(Just in case this isn't obvious--these books need to be in English! No way is her rudimentary school French up to otherwise.)
