“The Strong Girl” by Molly Hurford

The latest book from Molly Hurford, “The Strong Girl,” is all about how strong girls can really be—and it’s a great adventure story that will subtly introduce your middle grade reader to strength training, endurance sport and more. The book is set in the 1860s, when opportunities for a young farm girl on the outskirts of Montreal are slim. Lizzy has two choices: Take an apprenticeship and save her family farm, or run away to save herself from the life that’s been decided for her—and follow her dreams. When the circus comes to town, the choice is easy—but she quickly realizes that no decision is black and white. As mysterious things start happening within her newfound family, she’ll have to fight to save her friends and herself. This book is perfect for middle grade readers—especially those who may not have embraced their strong side just yet.
