MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK!!!!!,
This review is from: Getting Near to Baby (2000 Newbery Honor Book) (Paperback)
Getting Near to Baby was a heart warming story about two sisters who go to live with their aunt and uncle while their Mom gets her self back together after the baby sister in the family dies. The two girls, Willa Jo and Little Sister, are always against Aunt Patty. They certainly have their differences. Uncle Hob seems like a nobody-character but in the end of the book, he really does sometime outstanding. The thing about little sister is that she doesn't talk. She and Willa Jo have their own code, and Willa Jo tells everybody what she wants. This book is really cool because for the first 50 pages, it tells you about the situation now. They don't explain anything until they have gone about 50 or 60 pages into the book. It is great that way because you can make up your own story in your head about what happened. This book was extremely touching, and when you start reading the last few chapters, you never want to stop reading. I recommend this book to everyone!
