Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

There are lots of books that follow this same story…child has lost their mom, and someone is (often very unsuccessfully) helping them to find her. I was feeling pretty meh about this one (I don’t love the illustrations) when I got near the end where it had a moment of beautiful cleverness (I won’t spoil it!) that definitely bumped up my opinion of this book.
