    its hard to believe that I read this book last year and that I'm currently an 8th grader now. I remember joining this website when I was a little 4th grader and was obsessed with everything about it. It was my first type of "social media" as you could say. anyways "of mice and men" was a great book and it's hard to believe that its been 4 years joining this website wOW

    pipermc11's book review was featured in Lucky Broken Girl.
    Ruthie is just a young girl living in New York City, trying to achieve the American dream until those dreams are put on the line after a car accident that leaves her very injured. The story follows Ruthie's journey to recovery, forgiveness, hope, and love. I loved this book so so much for not only the thought provoking bits and life lessons, but for the melting pots of cultures that were conveyed. Because this is largely based off of the author's own experience, it has a personal touch that couldn't have been added otherwise. First of all, the life lessons and thought provoking bits. I loved Ruthie and I think anyone could sympathize with her hopefulness and kindness. I also loved how her recovery process was used in such a way that Ruthie had to grow up fast and learned so many life lessons like forgiveness, following your dreams, etc. The one complaint I would have is that I felt that sometimes, because Ruthie was bedridden, the story dragged a little. I also loved the other main component I took away from the book, which is that America is a melting pot. One of her friends was Indian, another was fluent in French and English and was from Belgium, their apartment neighbor was from Mexico, and Ruthie's extended family (all Cuban) were featured heavily. I also loved how whenever these cultures were brought up, they were always very warm and celebrated their culture (her parents dancing, their culture of food, her friend's mother making pastries, etc.) and I felt like I learned something about each of the cultures. Ultimately, this book showed one girl's story of recovery while learning about forgiveness and hope, and was able to celebrate cultures from all over the world without making the book all about culture/religion. The book shows that you should always follow your dreams because in America, it's a melting pot- anyone can achieve anything.

    This book really intrigued me because it reminds me of Peter Pan and involves some of my favorite elements of a story combined, astrology and magic!

    pipermc11's book review was featured in Warren the 13th and the Whispering Woods: A Novel.
    Warren the 13th and the Whispering Woods is a creepily enchanting story. I liked that it jumped right into the story directly from the last novel, so that there wasn't a gap in between. Tania del Rio did a great job of giving some context from the last book and transitioning to The Whispering Woods so that those who didn't read the first book won't be confused. The walking hotel was definitely one of the enchanting aspects of the novel, and I was happy to see Warren's progression from the last book to be happier. I also loved how his friends picked up people from all around the country to join the hotel. I loved how each setting (either the hotel, the forest, etc.) felt different from each other and had a distinct setting. I felt like the book did a good job with having multiple plot lines, yet it didn't feel rushed or strange. I also loved the pictures in both books, so it can be appealing to elementary age kids but still provide a valuable story for middle schoolers. I would definitely recommend this to elementary age to middle school age, and it was a great read!
