pleasantly entertained, educated and represented. Thanks for a great read. Enjoyable!!!
Age Rec: Booksellers market this for 3rd-7th grade. Personally I think the content may be a bit over the head of a 3rd/4th grader. It's not that it's inappropriate. I just think that many of the issues in the book are probably not that relevant to most girls at those ages, nor should they be. I personally think this is a better choice for the Upper Middle Grade (5th/6th Grade) age range. I also think it is very much on point for 7th graders as well. The MC is 12 and in 7th grade. Basically, I recommend this for girls in 5-7th grades.
I loved so many things about this tender book.
-The main characters, Alberta and Edie. Two very different girls from very different worlds, but with one important thing in common. They are the only Black girls in seventh grade. Now that Edie has moved in across the street from Alberta, she has someone who can understand how she sometimes felt alone in her class.
-Their families. Edie’s mother, recently divorced, has the courage to move across the country and follow her lifelong dream of opening a B&B. Alberta’s dads and her biological mother couldn’t love her more or be more supportive, as they carefully lead her through life.
-The realistic growing pains Alberta and her best friend suffer through as they mature differently and begin to follow their own interests will offer comfort to MG kids.
-The sadness Edie experiences when her busy dad can’t seem to find the time to call or visit, will help kids of divorce know they are not alone.
-The civil rights secrets Edie and Alberta learn when they discover some mysterious journals will prompt both surprises and perhaps a desire for kids to learn more about civil rights history.
-Edie and Alberta’s determination and resourcefulness in their search to find the owner of the long lost journals
This is a story you won’t want to end!
