“How do I get back to where I came from?”
This was an entertaining middle-grade story, and I liked the Alice-in-Wonderland feel.
I liked Evaline, and I liked the way she thought about other people first, and attached value to things. It was nice that she immediately felt like the bobble-headed woman was being very rude, and nice that she could pick the good people from the bad.
“Afterseveral quiet minutes of Bobblehead Haras evaluating Evaline’s faded yellow sundress and brown tattered Mary Jane shoes, she finally declared, “You are not good enough for this town.””
The storyline in this was good, and I liked Evaline’s journey, and the imagination in the different places that she travelled to and the different people she met.
“I am searching for my home. Or, maybe not my home, but a place I can call home.”
The ending ot this was a little different, but it was a satisfying ending. I thought it was good that we were left knowing that Evaline would have a happy future.
7 out of 10
“All I want is to find a place I feel safe and happy… I want to find a real home.”
A quick read that will leave you reflecting deeply, relating to both Evaline’s journey and the characters she encounters along the way as well as identifying with the challenges she faces. Enlightened: Evaline’s Journey is captivating and thought-provoking, a true gem. This is one of those rare finds that you will want to peruse over and over again. A must-read for ALL ages, young and old alike.
