review 1: Ruby is a girl who just loves life and everything in it. Especially The wonderful wizard of oz. Ruby is always imagining herself in the book. But, one day she finds out she has to move away from her best friend to Florida because her grandma fell and they are nervous about her. So Ruby has to start a new school and find new friends. She doesn't fit in well and her mom and grandma are getting into a lot of fights. Will Ruby ever find friends? Will her mom and grandma be nice? Read the book to find out! I really love this book! I think you will have a lot of fun reading it too. A lot of people move and make new friends so people know how this experience can affect your life, maybe in a good way or maybe in a bad way. But what doesn't kill you will make you stronger. This... more book is all about getting through tough times and really being hopeful and Ruby will eventually lead herself to the ________ path. But, I guess you won't know what kind of path it is unless you read the book!
review 2: A "fish out of water" tale for girls. The book targets the middle-school age, but I read it to my 2nd and 4th grade daughters for our "read aloud time". (maybe in preparation for a future in middle school?!) There was A LOT in here for discussion time - and we enjoyed talking about the shallow behaviors, different personalities, and even mother-daughter conflicts presented in the book. I also had a good time explaining the imagery and symbolisms connecting the story to "The Wizard of Oz". I did think some of the characters and the story were a bit far-fetched - the "mandatory" talent show run by an over-bearing counselor seems a bit of a stretch to me in ANY public school today. less
