Read full description of the books Jade Green:Jade Green was an amazing, frightening, fantastic ghost story about Judith Sparrow, a fifteen year old girl who has just become an orphan and is sent to live with her uncle in South Carolina. Her uncle has only one rule: you may not bring anything green into the house. Judith's mother had given her a picture of her in a green silk frame as a gift, and Judith cannot bear to part with it, so she secretly brings it in the house. What Judith doesn't know is that three years prior, a girl named Jade Green had taken her own life in that very house, and the color green is the one thing that awakens the ghost of her.
I gave this novel at ten out of ten because I loved it a lot. I was hesitant at first because I don't go to sleep very well after reading scary novels, but I enjoyed this one a lot and I think it was worth losing sleep over. I would recommend this to anybody. Literally. I would go walking down a busy street telling everybody I saw to read this book. No joke.
"A man, sir, in my opinion, is moderate in his drink, selective in his women, and does not risk his money over a gaming table." ~Jade Green, page 134
Read information about the authorPhyllis Reynolds Naylor was born in Anderson, Indiana, US on January 4, 1933.
Her family were strongly religious with conservative, midwestern values and most of her childhood was spent moving a lot due to her father's occupation as a salesman.
Though she grew up during the Depression and her family did not have a lot of money, Naylor stated that she never felt poor because her family owned good books. Her parents enjoyed reading stories to the children--her father would imitate the characters in Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer--and her mother read to them every evening, "almost until we were old enough to go out on dates, though we never would have admitted this to anyone."
By the time Phyllis reached fifth grade, writing books was her favorite hobby and she would rushed home from school each day to write down whatever plot had been forming in her head - at sixteen her first story was published in a local church magazine.
Phyllis has written over 80 books for children and young people. One of these books, "Shiloh," was awarded the Newbery Medal in 1992, was named a Notable Children's Book by the American Library Association and was also Young Adult Choice by the International Reading Association.
Naylor gets her ideas from things that happen to her or from things she has read. "Shiloh" was inspired by a little abused dog she and her husband found. The little dog haunted her so much that she had to write a story about him to get it out of her mind.
