          Soledad “Sol” Madrid has gotten through twelve whole years of her life using imagination. Sometimes she imagines herself in a rocket ship, or living in a gigantic mansion, or inside a fairy tale. But none of that is actually true for her. In reality, her mother and one of her sisters are dead, and she lives with her stepmother because her father went to the Philippines a few years ago. He hasn’t come back, and Sol often dreams of running away from their home in Louisiana with her younger sister Ming. But when Ming starts to believe a story Sol told her, about their make-believe aunt who lives in the jungle, everything gets messed up. How will Sol convince her sister to believe the truth? Read this book to find out! Once again, author Erin Entrada Kelly creates a heartfelt, witty, and creative novel that readers will love. The Land of Forgotten Girls is an unforgettable book, and I rate it 4/5 stars.

                This is such a good book about to girls that don't really have anything except their abusive stepmother and their few friends. Their mother and sister died and their father left them and now it's up to them to be there for each other. Their stepmother hates them and doesn't treat them like humans they want to run away but they can't the only have 40 dollars and that won't get them anywhere. The only thing keeping them going is their imagination, whenever they feel lonely they imagine there in a better place with people they love. This is such a touching book that I would totally recommend.
