The Red Abalone Shell is the perfect story for any middle grade reader who loves fantasy, mystery, historical fiction, and adventure all in one book. This second book in The Last Crystal Trilogy is the perfect companion to the first book, The Black Alabaster Box, or as a stand-alone novel. The book is set during early 20th century American life. Historical accuracy is obviously paramount to Schoonmaker and lessons on inclusivity and bullying are seamlessly woven in to create a story with rich detail and life lessons. Children won't even realize how much history they are learning while reading this epic tale.

Review quote

The second installment of The Last Crystal Trilogy is
even more engaging than the first as Grace's son, James,
sets out on a journey full of danger, discovery, memory,
and maturity. Schoonmaker skillfully and meticulously
weaves even more history into this story, as we watch
World War I unfold and witness how individual liberties
can be so easily and tragically curtailed in the name of
narrow-minded nationalism masquerading as patriotism.
An important message for today perhaps.
