The kids and I were super excited to win a giveaway from Darlene Beck Jacobson’s blog Gold From The Dust: Bringing Stories to Life, and receive a free copy of Jane Kelley’s latest book for middle grade readers. Thank you Darlene and Jane!
Here’s my ten-year-old son’s review of The Book of Dares for Lost Friends.
The Book of Dares for Lost Friends by Jane Kelley is a quick and easy read that explores the traits of friendship. Val and Lanora are two girls who live in The Big Apple. Their long history of friendship takes a twist in middle school when Lanora joins The A Team, which is essentially a clique of snotty popular girls. Val feels crushed, but decides to grin and bear it, until something major happens and things become even worse. This is a book boys and girls can enjoy with pleasure.
