Palace Beautiful Reviews
I just finished PB. This book is about 3 girls that find an old journal in a bedroom crawl space. They commit to reading it together and finding out what happened to the owner of the book.
My teenage daughter loved this book! She has read it many times
Such a good book! It's hilarious too! I cried several times. Heartwarming story about a girl who lost her mother to childbirth. She finds a journal from a girl her age who makes it through the 1918 influenza epedemic. I strongly recommend this book for ages 9+.
Bought for my 11 yr old; she tends to read the heavy stuff. She loved it, but it is not for the faint if heart. Very real, very moving account. Liked that it was both past and present. Great account.
Excellent storytelling, character development and a read that the most reluctant young person will enjoy. As someone who travels America and works with many kind of kid, this is a book that I would share!
I could read it a million times and never be bored! It wraps you up, and pushes you all at the same time!!!
I bought this book on a whim for my twelve year old daughter. She doesn't read as much as I would like. She loved this book and talked about it a lot while she was reading it. It is one of her favorite books.
Holy cheese crabs this book is SO amazing. It just expresses the feeling of a girl finding this amazing book and reads it with her friend and sister. I just love this book and Sarah DeFord
