4.0 out of 5 stars The Center of Everything, January 6, 2010
This review is from: The Center of Everything : A Novel (Paperback)
A friend recommended The Center of Everything and I am so glad she did. I found this to be a fresh and fascinating story told by a precocious and entertaining 10-year-old, Evelyn Bucknow. I thought the writing was excellent, presenting a true feeling of place and time, intertwining actual events into the story. Evelyn's perspective of those around her was honest and straightforward. While she faced many hardships, she never seemed to lose her enthusiasm for life and especially for school. I have the definite feeling that Evelyn will go far in this world and rise above the rather rough start she had in life.

Wasn't this a great book? I read it years ago and absolutely loved it! I am glad you liked it too!

Becca -- I thought I was that friend and glad to be considered one! Read her other books, you will be glad you did. This has been my favorite of all three of hers though, but the other two are very well done.

Julia---Thanks. It really was good.

Pam---I've got her other books lined up in the seriously too tall TBR pile. Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't fall over on me before I get some of them read.
