The Whole Truth
review 1: I had a horrible time getting through this book, which is a huge disappointment as I was a fan of Kit Pearson's books growing up. The overuse of exclamation marks was grating, and the lack of plot made it hard to keep going - I skimmed the last 2/3. I haven't read her other books in years and now I wonder if I would like them. I found these characters two-dimensional and uninteresting. Such a let-down.
review 2: Okay so I wanted to reread "A Handful of Time" and while looking for my library's copy, I came across this book. I loved Kit Pearson when I was in late elementary/early middle school. I devoured her books.I didn't think I'd feel the same way years later, especially when the protagonist was under the age of ten at the start of the book. I feel no sham
... moree in admitting I was wrong. Although the characters seemed melodramatic, I couldn't help but admire Kit Pearson, because what nine year old isn't self centered and melodramatic? The plot was engaging and the characters were well written and had depth. There were flaws in all the characters, but it just made them seem real. I really felt that these people could have existed!So kudos to Ms. Pearson for reminding me of her strong and realistic female characters. less
