Review By LAWonder10:

First of all, I have to say that I am impressed with the motivation of a High School student to write and publish a book!

This is a story set in the late 1939e during a time when many people were experiencing financial problems and depression. It Is also a time when people were more trusting, trustworthy, and more willing to help others.

This is a story about a loving, attentive wife and mother, who after several miscarriages, became pregnant later in life. The husband was stressed, working several jobs. Their only daughter was old enough to help a lot. 

The mother went into labor and delivered her baby but ended with severe postnatal depression.

This is a story of the determination of a young girl, with the help of several good people, and love with no bounds.

The characters are defined well and are realistic. The scenes are described quite well. The Title and Cover image are chosen well and are eye-catching.

Some of the scenes were abrupt and some of the conversations were not plausible. The ending felt incomplete. Otherwise, it was a very inspiring story.

I offer a Three and a Half Stars rating.

This book was gifted me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.

What I Think Makes a Good Story

I think what makes a good story differs for each reader and writer, but to me what makes a good story is the effect it has on me after I am done reading. Some books I can close, tell myself, “that was good.”, and then move on, but the books that keep me thinking about them for days, weeks, and sometimes months afterwards are the ones that I consider truly amazing.

Maybe that book had a character that I really connected with, or maybe the way the author was able to connect different ideas and emotions together was astonishing. Every time I finish a book, emotions either roll over me all at once, affecting my mood, forcing me to dissect every part of the book in my mind for ages, or I put the book back on the shelf and think about it every now and then. I listen to music so much, and even though it seems strange, I know a story was thoughtful and well-planned if I can thoroughly associate a song with it.

After reading “The Ballad of Song Birds and Snakes” by Suzanne Collins, I listened to “I Bet You Think About Me” by Taylor Swift for weeks after, associating every lyric with every single scene in the book.

After a good book, I can sit in my bed with my little pink journal, and write cohesive poems and songs about it. If I can tell someone else that I wish I could erase my memory and read a book for the first time again, I know that book did its job of being an astounding story.
