Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore.

Book Review: Where You've Got To Be by Caroline Gertler

Set in New York, New York, Where You've Got To Be by Caroline Gertler is about a tween girl named Nolie and her path to growing up, learning that relationships will change, and various life lessons.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Greenwillow Books for an Advanced Readers Copy of Where You've Got To Be by Caroline Gertler in exchange for my honest review.

Well written, it's reminiscent of Judy Blume's Ramona Quimby books. Even as an adult, I can definitely empathize with what the main character of Where You've Got To Be. Who didn't experience friendships that changed and people making fun of them in some way during middle school? The pacing was perfect and kept my interest the entire time. 

It's definitely a perfect book for children between the ages of eight and twelve. This children's novel reassures the reader that things will work out for the better, even though it may not feel like it at the time. I think this is a perfect book for parents to read with their kids as a family and have a discussion about it. Five out of five stars is what I gave Where You've Got To Be by Caroline Gertler.
