Review: Dear Sister by Francine Pascal
Dear Sister (Sweet Valley High #7) - Francine Pascal

Title: Dear Sister
Author: Francine Pascal, Kate William
Series: Sweet Valley High, 7
Format: ebook, bind-up
Length: N/A
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: Sweet Valley is stunned by the news: Beautiful young Elizabeth Wakefield lies in a coma, on the brink of death after a horrible motorcycle accident. Elizabeth's boyfriend Todd is consumed by guilt; he was driving and escaped unharmed. He feels totally helpless. All he can do is wait for a change in Elizabeth's condition--a change that might mean the loss of the only girl he's ever loved.
But no one is more shattered than Elizabeth's twin, Jessica. As she keeps watch over the silent body of her sister, she's overwhelmed by despair. Without Elizabeth, can life go on?

 

Favourite character: N/A
Least favourite character: Elizabeth & Jessica

 

Mini-review: This was one of the first Sweet Valley High books I ever read. I’m not that I understand the human brain enough to know if the plot of this book is plausible, but it makes for an interesting read, even if I did want to smack both twins.

Dear Mr. Darcy by Sally Johnson
Dear Mr. Darcy - Sally Johnson

 

 

Johnson takes the best  parts of feel good romance and creates her own masterpiece. Dear Mr. Darcy is a slow burn, delightfully amusing look at love. Will and Alivia are full of great one liners, but each bark is a smokescreen for a lonely heart.  Darcy will make a heart forget itself even as it puts a smile on your face.

Review: A Desperate Road to Freedom by Karleen Bradford
A Desperate Road to Freedom - Karleen Bradford

Title: The Desperate Road to Freedom
Author: Karleen Bradford
Series: Dear Canada
Format: ebook
Length: 359 pages (iPhone)
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis:
A riveting tale of a brave family's last bid for freedom, and the price they pay to find it.
Julia May and her family have done the unthinkable. They have fled from their life of slavery on a tobacco plantation in Virginia, and are making their way north, on foot, where they have heard that slaves can live free. Their story, told through Julia May's journal entries, is gruelling. Their journey takes them through swamps, travelling by night and hiding by day. It is a harrowing, terrifying experience, but determination to find a new life in Canada keeps them going.
The diary that Julia May keeps is another act of bravery. Learning to read and write alongside her mistress at the plantation was her own secret, and strictly forbidden for a slave girl. Now as she records her fears and the extraordinary things she sees during her journey, she is deeply afraid that she'll be found out and suffer the consequences. But her journal keeps her going through the hard times until they are finally free. Readers will be moved as they follow her family's trek north . . . but even here old prejudices die hard.

 

Mini-review:
This was a cute book, set in a town near me and so that was awesome to read about, because now when I go back there I'll see it with new eyes. Also like no books are set in my area, so I'm very excited right now. What Julia May went through due to racism was disgusting and I felt for her throughout the whole book.

Dear Boy,
Dear Boy, - Paris Rosenthal
Just like Dear Girl, this book is pretty amazing! It is a powerful, uplifting book, that puts boys in the spotlight. I think all classrooms, libraries, and parents should have a copy of this book as it informs boys that no matter who they are, they are loved, accepted and important.
 
With a cheerful stance, the book addresses “Dear Boy” as it explains some of the many different circumstances that he might encounter with fun, cute illustrations. The authors explain that it’s okay for “Dear Boy” to not know all the answers to the questions that are presented to him, that being honest is the best choice in a situation, that he don’t always have to play with “boy” toys, and that it’s fun to have different friends for the different things that you do in life. These are just a few of the topics that the authors cover in this book that is sure to give any reader, encouragement and confident to face the day. If you haven’t read Dear Girl, you should check out that book too as they go hand-in-hand with this book. Dear Girl puts girls in the spotlight, giving them the inspiration and motivation to succeed. I highly recommended both books.
