I liked this book

Review by Petra

I enjoyed the way this book used two voices in a way that made it seem easy and clear who’s voice way who’s but was not disjointed. I would lend it to a kid who likes contemporary fiction.

Review by Shkudi

This book is fine. Not too good. I did like the way that the author told the story from two people's perspective

detour ahead

Review by dianafaith

Detour ahead is an ok book about a girl who's becoming bat mitzvah and her new friend guillermo, who likes poetry. There is no plot but, if you like an easy read I recommend this to you.
