    beautifully poignant. ...

    This might just be me. But does this vaguly sound like a gender bent Alexander Hamilton. She's writing her way out. ...

    I really loved this book because it was so inspiring. I loved how cute the friendship. I loved how Ivy refused to cry when her house was destroyed by the tornado. Also how beautiful is this cover! I loved how the sister Layla cared for her so much. I felt bad how Ivy felt left out in t...

    Ivy knew that wondering was what life was all about. Wondering was how you found yourself. This book is an explosion of emotions. 3.5 stars. I did not expect to be reading a middle grade story. This is my fourth book from this author, and I was sure I knew her style and genre of...

    Dewey's #Readathon Book 3 - Ivy Aberdeen's Letter to the World is the perfect book for questioning girls, and I'm not ashamed to say this book made me tear up. It makes discovering your sexuality a normal yet complex concept without being too heavy-handed, and not just about the romanc...

    Ashley Herring Blake does it again. She's crafted another perfect book about family and love and loss, all centered around a 12 year old girl who's discovering her identity. Middle Grade isn't my favorite, but Ashley is an author whose work means so much to me, so I knew I had to read ...

    As the author of another book that could be described as "girl loses house to tornado," what I loved in reading this was seeing how differently another person can approach the same general concept. I absolutely LOVED the direction Ashley Herring Blake takes her book -- Ivy's journey of...
