In 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade, my language arts teacher assigned our class to read a book called "Up _ Hill" (so, I'm guessing the book is targeted towards younger/preteen audiences). All I can really remember about the book's plot is that the main character is a young boy, and there's a nearby mysterious hill that he wants to climb. As for what I remember about the title, I am almost certain that the title was of the form "Up [name of the hill, which I don't remember] Hill". Whenever I try to think of the name, though, the only things that pop up are the words "Knox" and "Knockturn". Knockturn's likely from Harry Potter (Knockturn alley), so I don't think that's right. "Up Knox Hill" doesn't seem to return any relevant search results.


  • English book (novel) about a young boy climbing a nearby, mysterious hill. I read it around 8 years ago, in school (specifically, I think in 4th grade; definitely somewhere from 3rd to 5th grade).
  • The title is of the form "Up [something] Hill", and I have a vague impression that the hill's name is similar to the word Knox.
  • Book is likely targeted towards younger or preteen audiences.
  • Book's appearance: handheld, the area was about average, but I do remember that it was a little thin.
  • Welcome to the site! You've already provided some good details here, like when you read it and the language and target audience. Just in case you haven't already seen it, let me drop a link to the ID tag wiki which has a checklist to help jog memories of ID askers.
