    3.5 stars This is a charming little story, and I liked how it focused on both understand one s self and shifting your perspective on what you really see about yourself and the world.

  5. Chelsea says:

    okay but like why did this make me shed a single tear kids books are so frickin sad sometimes 3 1 2 stars because the dialogue was kinda cringey at points and I struggled for the majority of the beginning to connect with the main character, but it did get an emotional response from me in a non emotionally manipulative way, so kudos on that.read for class

    Middle grade books are very hit or miss for me I mean, I m an adult, so that s probably to be expected, but I ve found that while most children s books and most YA hold up perfectly fine, middle grade often hits a very particular level of this is how the world works that really only works below a certain age But the few books that don t do that tend to be very good, and this is one of them It was surprisingly deep for a middle grade novel, without being overwhelmingly negative or intense W Middle grade books are very hit or miss for me I mean, I m an adult, so that s probably to be expected, but I ve found that while most children s books and most YA hold up perfectly fine, middle grade often hits a very particular level of this is how the world works that really only works below a certain age But the few books that don t do that tend to be very good, and this is one of them It was surprisingly deep for a middle grade novel, without being overwhelmingly negative or intense We needbooks like this books that actually address serious issues in a realistic way, rather than either pretending they don t exist or being overly melodramatic and basically a huge downer.It s easy to like Tillie She often feels left out or limited because of her disability, but she s also mostly comfortable with who she is and what she s been through She s faraffected by the way other people treat her for her disability than by the disability itself, but she s not some perfect cherubic kid with no complaints, either And the way she turned to photography to help her cope, and the way she uses it to feelcomfortable with being on the outside looking in, is done really well.The whole plot is woven together artfully Typically, in children s middle grade books, the A plot and B plot are either almost wholly separate or it beats you over the head with how connected they are Here, they re both literally and symbolically connected, but that connection is shown naturally Middle schoolers might not consciously get the symbolic connection, but I think they ll get the gist of it simply from how the story is told.Surprisingly, it also addresses potential concerns about constantly taking pictures of people without their knowledge or consent, without condemning her passion for photography While of course taking as many pictures of people as Tillie does isn t healthy, I honestly hadn t even thought about it until it was brought up, because it s so in line with the slightly over the top behavior we constantly see going unchecked in fiction.While the characterization of everyone besides Tillie was a bit weak, it s entirely possible that s deliberate, given that one of the underlying messages is about thinking you knowabout what s going on than you actually do In that case, what we see is Tillie s idea of the people around her, which is naturally shallow, exaggerated, and occasionally inconsistent I m not sure if it was fully deliberate or not, because it did feel legitimately uneven at times, but most of the characters did show substantial growth, at least.I did find myself wondering if Tillie was implied to be gay bi There are several instances throughout the book where she longingly admires how beautiful a particular girl or woman is, and aside from one sentence saying she d never kissed a boy, there s nothing suggesting attraction to boys whatsoever I feel like I should say it doesn t really matter, and in a way it doesn t since, obviously, there s no romance in the book , but we re only just now reaching the point where LGBT presence is barely acceptable in middle grade I get why the author didn t explicitly say Tillie likes girls, if the implication was intentional though I suspect it wasn t it s still too controversial outside of subject novels at this age level but there s enough for a young LGBT kid to latch onto for much needed representation If we assume that she is, it s refreshing to see a book about an LGBT person just existing, rather than it being entirely about their sexuality And, if nothing else, at least we have a book about a twelve year old that doesn t end up with her dating the boy she s been hanging out with Note to authors publishers Yes, twelve year olds do date, and some even go well past sheepish pseudo dating, but most twelve year olds are, you know, single Because they re twelve Stop pairing them off in every mid grade book And you re fooling no one with all the aww they like each other but aren t officially a couple endings
