This book is really unique because it is narrated by an oak tree named red. Red watches over a community of diversity. Red has lived for 216 years. Another name for Red is "the wishtree" because once a year people come to Red and tie their wishes to the branches. One day, an odd boy carved the word leaves into Red, which was offensive to a Muslim family.This book is good for elementary school students, but middle schoolers may enjoy this book too.
