Okay. so this is very engaging and a quick read. I loved the story, I loved the characters and felt we really got to feel what the main character and family was going through in their move to Maine.
Told in verse, Reena and her family have to move to Maine when her parents lose their jobs. They are moving from a city to a country farm in the middle of nowhere and her life is going to change. Then they have to "work" for grumpy old, Mrs. Falala where they meet the eccentric Zora, the cow.
My biggest complaint is to what poetry and verse is becoming today. This could easily have been written as a regular book.
this does not
make it poetry.
And that's really all the "verses" were in this book. But otherwise, I did really enjoy the book. And will absolutely recommend it.
