A review by lovelyjanelle13
The Categorical Universe of Candice Phee, by Barry Jonsberg


I picked this up at my local library for a quick read to help me get closer to this year’s goal, but I genuinely enjoyed the book. It’s nice to see representation in media, especially in stories geared towards younger kids. It’s definitely the type of book that as a kid I would’ve had a sticky note of words to look up as the main character’s favorite book is the dictionary. The author and the story are in Australia but even being an American I did not have any difficulty understanding any cultural differences. The characters were all incredibly realistic and interesting, I’d definitely recommend this book to pretty much anyone over the age of twelve.
