Ivy Aberdeen's Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake

Ivy is 12 years old (almost 13!), and feeling adrift following the birth of baby twins in the family. Her friends are just starting to think and talk about boys, but Ivy is starting to think about girls. Then, Ivy's world literally flies apart: a tornado flattens her house and leaves her family homeless.

Ivy is a smart, talented, and creative protagonist who finds more than a little help from friends--new friends and familiar friends.

This is a beautiful, sweet middle-grade book about Ivy and her family and friends, and their attempts to find their own places in the world. Highly recommended for readers ages 10 and up.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true. --R. Silvern
