Each week students will read/ listen to about 5 chapters. The time it will take will vary on the reading speed of each student.

Mary's parents both die and she is sent to her uncle's estate. This book deals with death, grief, learning how to deal with anger in a positive way, and new beginnings. Racism is brought up in this book but will be addressed as to how unacceptable this is, and we will focus on the main story of Mary finding an enchanted garden and the healing that comes from the magic that is found in that garden.
