Rated 4 out of 5 by from Historical fiction Charlie Wilcox is an excellent historical fiction novel. The novel is set in Eastern Canada and Europe. The novel is very relatable, especially to middle school age students. After reading the novel as a teacher, I am excited to have my students read the novel. I recommend this novel to readers in grade 6-8.
