Leaving Fishers by Margaret Haddix
At a new high school in Indianapolis, Dorry Stevens thought she would never make friends when one day she is introduced to a faction of acquaintances. Soon, she discovers that her friends are all a part of a religious group called the Fishers of Men. Dorry is overjoyed with her new companions' attention, but the Fishers make severe demands of their members. LEAVING FISHERS is an intense book written by Margaret Peterson Haddix, who is also the author of Running out of Time. I thought this was a wonderful and very descriptive book that tells a superb story. It has a great storyline and is filled with many feelings and emotions. Audrey C.
