Zora was chasing us.

Mooooooooo. Mooooooooo.

When we reached the gate Luke scrambled up and over it instead of through it and I was trying to follow when Zora’s ENORMOUS HEAD loomed up below me and bumped me into the air

When twelve-year-old Reena, her little brother, Luke, and their parents move to Maine, Reena doesn’t know what to expect. She’s ready for beaches, blueberries, and all the lobster she can eat. Instead, her parents “volunteer” Reena and Luke to work for an eccentric neighbor named Mrs. Falala, who has a pig named Paulie, a cat named China, a snake named Edna—and one very ornery cow named Zora.

From Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech comes a lovely and uplifting story of how a little kindness can change lives, reminding us that if you’re open to new experiences, life offers surprises.

Was there room inside for the sights and sounds and smells of Maine?

Would I know what to do and how to be in Maine?

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

THIS BOOK
The truth is that this book was
A M A Z I N G.
Displaced children are a common theme in a lot of
middle grade novels but this one was special.
And not just because it is Sharon

(although she really knows what she is doing)
Two children are taken out of their metropolitan setting and forced to
Adapt to a more rural one.
They are out of place, outside of their comfort zone
Yet they adapt. And they make friends
Animal friends
Human

And they grow as characters
As people
And transform.
There is s a d n e s s and heartbreak
and change but these kids come out on top and win your
HEARTS.

Rashika

Rashika is a mysterious creature who likes to hide in the shadows. It's impossible to get to know her but if you must know, she is a huge bookworm. She also happens to have a huge sweet tooth so you can always lure her over the dark side by offering her something sweet (or bribing her with books).

    I DIDN’T KNOW THIS WAS BY SHARON CREECH. SHE IS STILL WRITING? SHE IS MY CHILDHOOD FAVORITE. Well okay I read one book by her.

    I like the way you wrote this poem Rashika. Does it in any way reflect Moo? I want an animal friend
