Download ➽ I Lived on Butterfly Hill Autore Marjorie Agosin –

I Lived on Butterfly Hill I used this book in my 8th grade Honors English classes They absolute loved it We discussed the historical context, religious aspects, character development, etc The students really enjoyed the book Many of them read the entire book over a weekend 500 pages and then read it a second time in addition to their work The book has many Spanish terms, but it clarifies the meaning of the words in the sentence or in the sentence following the word The kids said this book comes highly recommended An excellent middle grade novel on one girl s experience with the dictatorship in Chile It s written in first person, and takes places between the ages of 11 13 I loved how the author managed to tell a difficult story from the eyes of a child, never sugar coating the experience but leaving out the violence and torture that was part of that time period. An exceptional book WHY don t they have 4.5 stars I can t wait to send this book to girls in 6 8th grade But as an adult, I learned so much about Chili and the trauma of overthrowing and assassinating a beloved president The book has wonderful magic the best kind it s real Capturing the zest for life of the age group is itself masterful, but to create a delightful character like Celeste is an artist s gift to every reader. I have this book on a list of choices for books to read for an 8th grade unit on Latin America The students who have read it have refused to give it back to me because they want to read it again Captures the enchantment of Chile as well as the brutality of the government.
