Today’s review is of The Girl with Space in her Heart. A Book about worries and secrets, with a little bit of space thrown in.
Hi, everyone. Today I’m going to talk about The Girl with Space in her Heart by Lara Williamson, which I read as an eBook. This book is for kids aged 9-12.
Mabel Mynt loves space, but she’s also a worrier and there’s a lot to Worry about. Her dad who no longer lives with them, her mum’s boyfriend, her sister, the new girl at school. Mabel’s worry suitcase is about to burst open.
This story, as you might have gathered, is about facing up to your worries. There are a lot of secrets being kept by the characters in this book, that end up causing tensions between them. There are plenty of clues along the way to what’s actually going on, but you will have to be observant enough to notice them.
Most of the story goes along at quite an even pace, with Mabel and her sister Topaz’s scheming, taking a lot of the limelight, but near the end there’s a huge crescendo, which really packs a punch.
And there’s poetry. Quite a lot of poetry.
If you enjoy stories about dealing with worries and family issues, then this might be for you. And as luck would have it, there are two other reviews of books covering the same kinds of issues on my channel already. They are Worry Magic and The Worry Tree.
Thank you for watching. The book description is coming up and I’ll see you next time.
