appropriate to her age. A very short read which was uninspiring and, frankly, immature. I could not recommend this book to a serious reader.
How many more words do I have to say to get you to read this book?? Because I can come up with more, trust me.
WOW!! Just wow. I think I need a moment..............................................ok, I'm good!
Oh, wait I forgot another word: CAPTIVATING! If we're ever going to be awarding someone for literary genius, hands down-feet up I'd nominate Jessica Bell. Wowzer, that chick can write. In just over 100 pages(Kindle), she tells us a story about a little girl trying to understand what love is. It's written in diary-style entries from Bonnie's mom and dad, transcriptions from Bonnie's therapy sessions, and first-person POV of Bonnie as a 5-year-old girl. All of these make up The Book. It holds the reasons why Bonnie's family has come undone.
The most impressive part of those different POVs is Bonnie's. It's written in 5-year-old speak; spelled the way a little kid hears it. Don't worry it's not hard to understand. And there's actually a point to that, it helps back up the way Bonnie's brain works and what "makes logic" to her. The writing incorporates all that is Bonnie- smart, intuitive, clever, scared, funny. Full of life.
She is the BEST character I have EVER read about!!And I read a whole lot.
This is not a romance novel in the sense where boy meets girl and they live happily ever after. No. This is the bittersweet romance of a disconnected family trying to piece their love back together.
Please, please read this book! I'm practically begging here. And mothers( and fathers) have a box of tissues handy because you'll need it.
Oh my goodness. You should feel the chills creeping down my back. That book, wow. Such distinct and lovable voices. The mother is definitely a mother but is somewhat self-absorbed and stuck in a rut. I loved the mother even in all her flawed glory. The father chimes in only once in a while and he has such a strong but pompous voice. And I love Bonnie, the little girl. She was so honest and cute. Her knowledge and wisdom are a bit astounding.
Jessica really managed to show everything even though it was being told. I was held captive the entire time. By entire time I mean that I read the novella in just a few hours because I couldn't stop. Seriously, goose bumps all up and down my arms. This is very stunning work yet again from Jessica. Go get this one, right now.
