Ivy Aberdeen's Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake


Goodreads Blurb:

When a tornado rips through town, twelve-year-old Ivy Aberdeen's house is destroyed and her family of five is displaced. Ivy feels invisible and ignored in the aftermath of the storm--and what's worse, her notebook filled with secret drawings of girls holding hands has gone missing.

Mysteriously, Ivy's drawings begin to reappear in her locker with notes from someone telling her to open up about her identity. Ivy thinks--and hopes--that this someone might be her classmate, another girl for whom Ivy has begun to develop a crush. Will Ivy find the strength and courage to follow her true feelings?

Things I liked:

1) I honestly do not read many books that have lgbtq representation in them. This was for the middle grade prompt and I am so glad I read this.

2) Ivy- Honestly some of the things Ivy did were kind of questionable but by the end of this book I really loved her character.

3) The friend group of this book was just awesome. Yes they had issues as most do but it wasn't the catty girls as I'm used to.

Things I wasn't fond of:

1) My one complaint about this book were the parents. These probably weren't the worst ones ever but dang they made some interesting decisions.

My rating: ❤️❤️❤️❤️
