About the Series

Novel Scenes is a four-book series where each book tells the story of a single character in situations which adult students can relate to and where events - much like regular novels - unfold chapter by chapter. Characters in the story find themselves in unexpected situations that new adult learners can relate to. Ideal for students in ESL, Literacy and ABE instruction.
