Rating: 2

My rating for this book is a 2 because the book is bland in my opinion and does not have intensive detail. This book failed to get my interest and I believe the main reason was not enough detail and the plot was very predictable.

Summary:

This is about a girl Lola. Her father is missing and everyone says that he died. Lola in disbelief starts trying to find him. She then has a story which is created that will be unique throughout her life.

Recommendation:

Frannie in Pieces by Delia Ephron

15-year-old Frannie is dealing with the death of her father when she discovers that he had made her a 1000-piece puzzle. Frannie is then suddenly transported back in the past to learn more about her father.

I personally did not like this book. It felt way longer than it should have been. This book did not flow very well and felt fragmented.  The plot seemed odd also, considering how she randomly traveled back to the past. I didn’t really like the characters either, they did not seem very redeeming. I would rate this book a 2/5.
