Hiya everyone, it’s Sarah!
This book was getting buzz for Newbery this past season, which is how it made its way into my reading pile.
Author: Corey Ann Haydu
Something tragic happened last year and Elodee’s family is struggling. Everything that her friends and family do make her angry and she has been getting in fights. Elodee’s twin Naomi has retreated into herself and the twins don’t seem to have as strong of a bond as they once did. The family is moving to Eventown, where they have very happy memories. The town is perfect and has an awesome ice cream parlor. Elodee is excited to move to this new place, but once she gets there, things seem strange. Elodee begins questioning things about the town, causing unrest in this perfect town. Will Elodee be able to fit in anywhere and find happiness like her family has in this new town?
I really thought the twin was a figment of the main character’s imagination…this went on much longer than it should have. Other than that, it was a solid book about a Pleasantville like town.
