Engaging mystery told from the perspective of an autistic boy. When his cousin, Salim, visits for the first time in years, Ted and Kat decide to show him the famous London Eye. Unfortunately, they can only buy one ticket, and they kindly give it to Salim. They see him board, but when the ride is over, he's nowhere to be found. What happened to Salim? And can Ted figure it out even with his "differently wired" brain?
I read this book for a class and was shocked by how much I enjoyed it. The themes of being rejected by others for reasons beyond an individuals self-control are the truly haunting themes of this book. I was surprised how much my heart went out to the monster.È
I'm not a romance novel reader, but I read this book because Meg Cabot is my favorite fluff author and I thought the premise of having Princess Mia write the novel was cute (it's the novel she wrote in Forever Princess). It was actually quite a cute little historical romantic adventure story.
A collection of short stories that are equally witty and heartbreaking. In the darkest and most hopeless situations, Moore’s characters can still crack jokes and make the reader smile Appeals: Deep emotive force, stories of strained or broken relationships (both familial and romantic). Offbeat style.
1st in Jane da Silva series 1992 As with all 4 of the Jane da Silva books, I appreciate the Seattle setting, the forays into other nearby regions, her comedic endeavors to satisfy the terms of the uncle's will, her bungling into a clever solution, and just about everything else about these light, humorous mysteries. Very satisfying short reads.
A strong narrative about a group of farm animals that have formed a quasi-family. Another story within thin the framework of the book is shared by Whittington the cat about his ancestry. The owner has a couple grandchildren. The boy struggles with reading. Fearful kids will tease him, he decides not to go to reading recovery. The determination the boy exhibits provides a good example to children. My concern was that children often fear being teased and attempt to avoid situations that might make them the object of ridicule. While the book reveals this fear, it does not show children a way to confront or overcome it. It instead shows children avoiding it is the answer. For this reason I am not recommending the book for children with difficulty reading.
I resisted----I really did. I don't know why, really, because it is as everyone says: beautiful and terrible; up lifting and depressing; hopeful and hopeless. Much of it will remain with me, too. No spoilers here for the 2 of you who haven't read this book yet (you know who you are!). I'm not sure I want to rush out and see the movie, but now I can! Now I want to know what glass coated kite string looks like...and I'm ready to read A Thousand Splendid Suns!
