    A middle grade novel about a girl realizing she likes girls! My queer little heart is so happy. If I had had this book when I was 12, high school would have been SO different. I want everyone to read this damn booooook. ...

    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...

    I don?t read a lot of middle grade novels, and when I do, they?re generally exclusively fantasy or historical fiction. When I think of MG contemporary novels, it?s not typically a book I?m going to reach for. That said, I have adored Ashley Herring Blake?s YA novels so tremen...

    I have now five starred two books by this author and am contractually obliged to read everything she ever writes ...

    Some words to describe this book: Perfect. Beautiful. Poignant. Necessary. Long overdue. I loved it! So many thanks to the author for writing it. ...

    Beautiful journey of a preteen that navigates her first crush, a family disaster and her relationship with her best friend. Wonderful and well-done story. ...

    This is a beautiful, emotionally pitch perfect book about Ivy, a 12-year-old dealing with a lot: she's feeling left out of her family with two new twin babies; a tornado destroyed their house; she's realizing that she likes girls instead of boys. After the tornado, Ivy's notebook that ...

    My heart ? ...

    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 ...

    This review was first posted on my blog, The Thoughtful Voice! I didn't expect to enjoy this book so much, but it was an absolutely beautiful and gorgeous story. Even though Ivy Aberdeen?s Letter to the World is a middle grade book, I honestly think that this book is one that e...

    i don't really read MG... ever. but you know what, maybe i'll start. can't miss an opportunity to read a sapphic book ...

    This book was so adorable, emotional and sweet. Ivy was so sweet and her fears etc., were so well written that I couldn't believe it. The cover makes total sense, the fact that it started so raw was unreal - never read anything like twister but darn I felt like I was there. Secondary c...

    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...

    Ivy Aberdeen...is the first book I have read by Ashley Herring Blake and it certainly won't be the last! I wasn?t completely sure what to expect from a middle-grade contemporary by an author I?d never read before but it wasn?t this delightful dream of a book! The story focuse...

    there's not a lot i can say about this book without it being ridiculously personal, but it's the book i needed when i was thirteen and developing into the idea that i liked girls and not boys. it's the book of my heart. ivy aberdeen is such a relatable narrator because our journeys to ...

    i knew i would like this book the moment i first saw it. how to make a wish is my all time favorite book. i adore ashely's writing style. still, i did not expect this little book to have this impact on me. i have been ugly crying for half an hour and i would hug this book if i coul...

    Oh what a middle grade book this was! It made my heart happy and I cried but it was good tears at the end. Ivy is 12 when her family home is destroyed by a tornado. Her family was already in a bit of a mess with new twin brothers and learning how she fits in with her older sister. Also...

    Este libro me ha parecido precioso, se me hizo corta la lectura. Me ha gustado la manera en como comienza la autora y vamos viendo como afecta todo a la vida de Ivy. Adems tiene un secreto que tiene muchas ganas de contar al mundo. Resea en el blog: https://librosadorables.blogsp...

    beautifully poignant. ...

    This is a must own, must share book with middle grade readers. With an authentic voice in main character Ivy Aberdeen, we learn alongside her how young people grapple with and celebrate their identity. When twelve year old Ivy realizes that she has a crush...on a girl...the emotions of...

    Hermoso por donde lo mires. Un middle grade LGBTQ+ sobre el audescubrimiento y la autoaceptacin, adems de que es F/F, lo cual no se ve mucho ni siquiera en el YA. Que podamos expresar quines somos a travs del arte le da un plus. De lo mejor que le en el ao. ...

    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...

    Mini Review I?m still kind of in awe of the fact that this book exists. 3 1/2 stars It?s a lovely middle grade about coming to terms with your sexuality, a book that kids desperately need. I have never read a middle grade with an explicitly LGBT character, much less one ent...

    Queer middle grade stories are probably my favorite thing ever. As usual these kind of books always hit home with me. These are the books I wish I had when I was younger but I?m glad they?re happening now so young kids today can read them and know they?re not alone and there?...

    Ivy Aberdeen is twelve (with a birthday in the near future) and trying to figure out her place in the world. Her family loses their home to a tornado, but before this event, Ivy is trying to adjust to her mom being overwhelmed with her baby twin brothers. In addition, Ivy's older siste...

    I don?t read a lot of middle grade novels, and when I do, they?re generally exclusively fantasy or historical fiction. When I think of MG contemporary novels, it?s not typically a book I?m going to reach for. That said, I have adored Ashley Herring Blake?s YA novels so tremen...

    I have now five starred two books by this author and am contractually obliged to read everything she ever writes ...

    Some words to describe this book: Perfect. Beautiful. Poignant. Necessary. Long overdue. I loved it! So many thanks to the author for writing it. ...

    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...

    Beautiful journey of a preteen that navigates her first crush, a family disaster and her relationship with her best friend. Wonderful and well-done story. ...

    This is a beautiful, emotionally pitch perfect book about Ivy, a 12-year-old dealing with a lot: she's feeling left out of her family with two new twin babies; a tornado destroyed their house; she's realizing that she likes girls instead of boys. After the tornado, Ivy's notebook that ...

    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 ...

    This review was first posted on my blog, The Thoughtful Voice! I didn't expect to enjoy this book so much, but it was an absolutely beautiful and gorgeous story. Even though Ivy Aberdeen?s Letter to the World is a middle grade book, I honestly think that this book is one that e...

    This book was so adorable, emotional and sweet. Ivy was so sweet and her fears etc., were so well written that I couldn't believe it. The cover makes total sense, the fact that it started so raw was unreal - never read anything like twister but darn I felt like I was there. Secondary c...

    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...

    Ivy Aberdeen...is the first book I have read by Ashley Herring Blake and it certainly won't be the last! I wasn?t completely sure what to expect from a middle-grade contemporary by an author I?d never read before but it wasn?t this delightful dream of a book! The story focuse...

    there's not a lot i can say about this book without it being ridiculously personal, but it's the book i needed when i was thirteen and developing into the idea that i liked girls and not boys. it's the book of my heart. ivy aberdeen is such a relatable narrator because our journeys to ...
