Runa by J. Alison James

In this “vivid and compelling tale” (Kirkus Reviews), a series of accidents and a discovery in a medieval church suddenly change Runa’s carefree summer on a Swedish island into three tense days as she finds her life caught up in the rites of her Viking ancestors and subject to the implacable will of ancient Norse gods.

I found this book to be un-put-down-able. I read it in one sitting, and stayed up past midnight to do it. I am a middle-aged lady, but I enjoy young-adult novels. I disagree with the editorial reviewer who said that the ending was unexplained and confusing. I found it to be perfectly clear.

I just read this book for a 6th grade project and I thought it was very captivating and exciting! However, I would not recommend this book to horse lovers because a horse sacrifices its life. I will always remember the book.

I read this story when I was around the age of 12, and I still ponder some of the things brought up by the author. I found the information on the vikings to be fascinating, and the selfless and sacrificing acts of Runa linger in my memory. Definately a book to read.
