Blown Away with All the Amazing, Magical Detail
Reviewed in the United States on July 29, 2020
I've always loved Lois Lowry's books and this book like all the others, did not disappoint me. Lowry really brought this story to life. This story was simple but Lowry wrote it to become alive and magical. She describes everything with such grace and amazing penmanship I can imagine the story in detail like a movie in my mind! Though some parts in this story I'm a little skeptical about for example *SPOILER ALERT* when the main character talks to and accepts and invitation from an old man who is a total stranger to her at the time and when a young teenager is allowed to watch a birth of a baby. But besides that I think this book is nonetheless special and teaches good lessons. It really dives into dealing with tough situations and teaches about accepting others. This book I think is great for people who love to imagine and love to experience a whole another type of story.
