super10 added a book review.
I really thought this was a barrier breaking book. It helped me to see people who are short in a better light. It helped me realize the world from a different point of view!
In the book Short, a girl named Julia Marks wants to have a summer of just writing letters to her friends and relaxing. But this is dream is crushed, because she has to try out for a university performance, and she makes it! This turns out to be a problem early, but she meets new friends along the way, like a artistic neighbor named Mrs. Chang, and she starts to enjoy and have pride in the performance!
This book helped me learn to see the world in a optimistic point of view. An example of this was when Julia met Olive, an adult who was short. Olive knew that people would look at her often, but she let it go, and didn't get angry!
I would definitely recommend this book to my friends, because I feel that it would inspire them, no matter how tall or short they are. Because of the inspiration I felt when reading this book, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars.
