BOOK REVIEW: Growing Up Neighbors by Frances Hoelsema


Little Deborah Harrington stared across the street the day the Michaels family moved in. Who was this family? Would she even like them? 

Nicholas Michaels hated the fact he had to move away from everything and everyone in his life, but his feelings change when he meets the Harringtons. Deborah and Nicholas become the best of friends, and as the children grow up, their friendship deepens. 

But then tragedy strikes. Will this cause them to part ways? Or will it perhaps make them realize they may have stronger feelings for one another before it's too late?

REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 5 months


This book was excellent! I enjoyed this book a lot because the author portrayed the characters as growing up and included all of the important parts of growing up in to their life for readers to see. 

Debbie is my favorite character because I am kind of like her. My favorite part is when they get married. 

I recommend this book to anyone who loves stories about growing up and all the struggles that comes with it. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11 to 13.
