The Crying Rocks
Janet Taylor LisleISBN: 0689853203;
Book Description Joelle's height and dark skin set her apart from everyone in Marshfield. It's no secret that she's adopted, but where is she from? Aunt Mary Louise says she came from Chicago on a freight train. The story doesn't sit right with Joelle. There's something more. She feels it. Carlos, the quiet boy in Joelle's Spanish class, sees it. "You know, you kind of look like them," he says, telling her about the Narragansetts, a tall and beautiful Native American people who once lived in New England. Joelle scoffs, until a mural of early Native Americans in the town library sparks a dim memory. When Carlos tells her about the Crying Rocks, where the ghosts of Narragansett children are said to cry for their lost mothers, Joelle knows she must visit them. Neither she nor Carlos anticipates the power of the ancient place or the revelations to be found there.
