Lost Cause by John Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Love the concept of this series. A grandfather leaves his seven grandsons specific tasks and adventures in his will.
LOST CAUSE concerns Steve discovering his grandfather's involvement in the Spanish Civil War. The book does a great job at weaving in historical facts and ambiguities. I would say that is a good choice for a reluctant readers, except that sometimes I found the writing a bit patronizing.
The series could be used for literature circles, as well as research on the contexts and locals of each novel.
