In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
”Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share”.
Life on Mars by Jennifer Brown – Realistic Fiction, 4th grade and up – Publ. August 2014- Well, I wasn’t sure what to expect about this book but I just fell for it hard. Couldn’t stop reading. What a quirky, touching story packed with humor and wonderful family interactions. I’ve read another book that also has a slightly obsessed about space character but this one takes the cake. Loved how a relationship developed right through the story, with barely any words but so powerful and important. Just fantastic. Plus the fact that this book deals with economic downturn, moving, sibling rivalry, boys breaking the mold, girls breaking the mold, morse code, and more really kept me reading. I see this book being quite popular! Highly recommend.
Goodreads Summary: “Twelve-year-old Arcturus Betelgeuse Chambers’ quest to find life on other planets seems at an end when his parents decide to move to Las Vegas, but while they look for a house he stays with his neighbor, an astronaut who soon becomes a friend.”
About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
