This book is so well written. I tend to get a little sleepy with history books or need to take my time but this book flowed and I kept wanting to read more. It was great.  The connection between past and present was so tangible. It was informative but also making one be cautious with where your information is coming from and why. Recommend 100%

Great, not glossed over pregnancy story. Loved the facts, drawings, and how she made it sound like I was talking to a friend.

Love this book. Very uplifting, very real. It's like talking to a friend when you need some perspective.

I honestly don't know how I feel about this book. I was captivated. It was like Handmaid's Tale meets irobot. It was devastating, with just enough hope to keep you going, it was motherhood in America. It was all the things that get mixed into motherhood. It was a lot. I will probably be processing this for a while.

The hungry caterpillar meets parenting. I laughed out loud. There is another cheap version of this with a similar name that I am pretty sure copied it and rushed it out to publish so check the author, as this one is superior and the original.

Good middle grade read. My 10 year old can't wait to start the next one. I thought it was good. Cameron flips and flops a lot on weather he wants to be a hero or not but maybe that is more realistic and I unnecessarily concentrated on it. Also I did not like all the fight scenes but my 10 year old loved them and only complaint was that it ended with a break with more to do.
