I am reviewing Once You Know This through Random House Children’s and their partnership with Netgalley:
Brittany is eleven years old and knows their is a better world out there, but sometimes it is hard to see it. Brittany lives in Chicago, her Grandmother is sick, she doesn’t like her stepfather, her Cat is missing.
Mr. Mcinnis, her fifth grade teacher wants his students to dream, to believe they can be anything, despite their circumstances. Brittany finds the courage to help her Mother and her baby brother escape the abusive situation after her Grandmother dies of Alzheimers.
This is a wonderful book for Middle Grade readers, I believe many girls would be able to relate to Brittany’s character.
I give this book five out of five stars.
