What Happened to Rachel Riley
Anna Hunt is the new girl at her middle school, and while she must navigate adjusting to a new school, there is only one thing on her mind: what happened to the once-popular Rachel Riley? Why is she the social outcast who sits alone? As Anna dives deeper into this mystery, she learns about friendship, self-advocacy, and how to stand up against harassment. A middle-grade mystery novel that explores topics such as sexual harassment, peer expectations, and social media, this engaging story may encourage readers to think critically about themselves, the world around them, and how these issues may impact them. The book lends itself well as a classroom novel, an addition to a class library, and for literature circle studies.
