If you liked The Wonder by Emma Donoghue, then try News of the World by Paulette Jiles.

Here’s why…

The Wonder and News of the World are historical fiction novels set in the 1800s. Both stories follow an adult who basically become responsible for a young child. In The Wonder, Lib is an English nurse who must watch over Anna O’Donnell to determine whether or not her fast is a fraud. In News of the World, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd is assigned with delivering ten-year-old Johanna to her relatives. In both stories, an unlikely friendship surfaces between the adult and child, and in a sense, they rescue each other.
