Book Review: Almost Home

Almost HomeAlmost Home by Joan Bauer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Joan Bauer has done it again. She creates absolutely wonderful characters, plunks them down in difficult (and realistic) situations, and lets them shine. There is lots of hard stuff here, but so much hope too. If you have a middle-grader who is always wanting to read things you consider "too old" for her, direct her to Bauer's work. She has the ability to create PG-rated stories set in an R-rated world. Oh, and make you laugh, cry, and cheer, too -- sometimes all on the same page!
