Suitable for ages 10 and up, Lavender-Green Magic is another AR book, so your child can get credit at school for reading the book and taking (at school) the associated AR test. Sadly, you may have to purchase a used copy, but the good news is that it's available on Kindle (click on the smaller image to find the Amazon page).
"A mysterious maze
"Eleven-year-old Holly Wade and her twin siblings, Judy and Crockett, are sent to live with their grandparents in the small town of Dimsdale, Massachusetts when their father is declared missing in action in Vietnam. Dimsdale is nothing like Boston; there are only two other African-American children in the entire school. Even worse, Grandpa and Grandma Wade live in an old junkyard!
"While exploring one day, Holly, Judy, and Crockett wander into an overgrown hedge maze—and find themselves transported back in time to Dimsdale’s past. Can they right an ancient wrong and free the town of Dimsdale from a witch’s curse?"
