Gordon Korman proves time and again why he’s such a beloved author through the 80+ books and 28 million copies he’s sold. In his latest work, Linked, three friends deal with the consequences of hate-speech vandalism in their school when a swastika is discovered. Michael is the first person to see it, so he’s the first suspect. But Link, who’s popular, is expected by everyone else to figure it out. Dana’s the only Jewish girl in town, and now everyone’s treating her like an outsider. Korman shows readers that the most common question—Who did it?—isn’t nearly as important as why. In an immersive, thought-provoking, and highly-engaging presentation, Korman shares the themes of this compelling new book for middle grade students.
