BOOK REVIEW: Connecting Dots by Sharon Jennings


For Cassandra, there's nothing romantic about being an orphan. Especially when it's not even true... 

After years of being passed around to various relatives, Cassandra Jovanovich has found a home where she feels she belongs. All she wants to do is forget her past and pursue her dream of becoming an actress. But her new friend, Leanna Mets, "the most annoying person she has ever met," wants to know how Cassandra became an orphan, and encourages her to write her story. Cassandra’s memories reveal how the death of her grandmother and the cruelty of the other adults in her life turned her into the distrustful, secretive twelve-year-old she is. But with friendship and the courage to continue her dream of acting, Cassandra might find a way to connect the dots in her life back together.

REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 4 months


This book was very sad and I can't imagine going through what Cassandra went though. 

My favorite character is Liz because she does not care what people think, she is like me in that way. My favorite part is when Cassandra talks about her grandmother. 

I hope everyone enjoys this amazing book as much as I did! 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11 to 13. 

P.S. This book may make you cry!
