Almost Home by Joan Bauer
Book review done by Caitlyn Wletzky
Almost Home was an interesting book to read. Although it started out kind of slow, Almost Home picked up the pace towards the middle and finished with a great ending. The story was realistic-fiction and started with a mom and her daughter, named Sugar, getting kicked out of their house. Desperate to find a new home, they move to Chicago. I thought that the author of this book used a great voice in the story and that the book really connects to some kids today. I recommend this book for kids ages 10 and up. If you read Almost Home you won’t be disappointed!
This book will be published on September 13, 2012.
