BOOK REVIEW: The Improbable Wonders of Moojie Littleman by Robin Gregory


BLURB:


Set in the early 1900s, THE IMPROBABLE WONDERS OF MOOJIE LITTLEMAN is a heartrending, coming-of-age story, with a dose of humor and magical realism. After his mother dies in a freak accident, eight year-old, disabled Moojie is sent by his disapproving father to live at St. Isidore's Fainting Goat Dairy, where he befriends a clan of outcasts from an alternate universe. Six years later, this forbidden friendship and subsequent events reveal an extraordinary boy’s tale of loss and connection, first love, and self-discovery.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

I really enjoyed this book! It is amazing and sad all at the same time. 

Moojie is my favorite character because he has such a hard life but is an overcomer. My favorite and most sad part is when Moojie's mom dies because she stays with him always. 

I recommend this book for anyone who likes having their breath taken away, while also dealing with multiple emotions in the beginning. Also for those that like humor and magic all at the same time. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 14.
