To Night Owl From Dogfish
To Night Owl From Dogfish | Meg Wolitzer, Holly Goldberg Sloan
From two extraordinary authors comes a moving, exuberant, laugh-out-loud novel about friendship and family, told entirely in emails and letters. Avery Bloom, who's bookish, intense, and afraid of many things, particularly deep water, lives in New York City. Bett Devlin, who's fearless, outgoing, and loves all animals as well as the ocean, lives in California. What they have in common is that they are both twelve years old, and are both being raised by single, gay dads. When their dads fall in love, Bett and Avery are sent, against their will, to the same sleepaway camp. Their dads hope that they will find common ground and become friends--and possibly, one day, even sisters. But things soon go off the rails for the girls (and for their dads too), and they find themselves on a summer adventure that neither of them could have predicted. Now that they can't imagine life without each other, will the two girls (who sometimes call themselves Night Owl and Dogfish) figure out a way to be a family?

I bought this book a couple weeks ago and it is perfect for my first #bbrc prompt. This book is told in emails and letters. This book reminded me a lot of The Parent Trap. Avery and Bett find out that their dads are dating and are going to send them to same summer camp while they take a trip to China. They don‘t like each other until the meet at the camp. But when a bunch of events happen and they find out their dads aren‘t together anymore 👇🏻

Lovesbooks87 👆🏻the girls were so excited that they were going to be sisters. So they work together to make a plan to get their dads back together. #bbrc middle grade epistolary novel 1y

Ok, this was a fun full cast MG audiobook. Two girls‘ dads start dating, and encourage the girls to become friends. They are reluctant at first, but end up bonding in a big way. Loved it!

I‘ve read this already but it was at an irresistible price so I bought it 😂 two girls reluctantly bond when their Dads become a couple... by the time they‘ve gotten used to the idea, the Dads have split and that‘s when the idea to stage a parent trap comes in... what could go wrong? Literally everything. Loved this!

I really enjoyed this story told through emails and letters. Bett & Avery live on opposite sides of the U.S. and do not want to be forced to get to know each other at camp just because their dads are in a relationship. Yet their friendship develops through writing to each other. It touched on some serious topics but also made me laugh out loud several times. I also really enjoyed the ending.

This was so cute. I really enjoyed this one. It was almost a modern take on The Parent Trap in some ways with the summer call and two different parents and newfound friendship. It was a bit annoying to listen to in parts because of the epistolary styled, but other than that, I really thought this was fun!

Two single fathers, both with 12-year-old daughters, meet at a convention and start a bi-costal romance. The dads scheme to get their girls to the same summer camp.

In a series of emails before camp, the girls agree they won‘t be friends. Obviously.

This is a story of the plans you make and how the unexpected results shape your life. And love. That too.

4.5⭐️ to this epistolary MG novel

Crazeedi Good morning!!💖 have a good day! 3y
Megabooks @Crazeedi thanks!! 💙😘 I‘ve been up all night with a cramp in my back and abdominal wall muscles that is not responding to vibration, heat, oral pain meds, muscle relaxers or voltaren gel. Do you have any suggestions?? Is there anything I forgot?? I‘ve been productive at least...I got this finished, am halfway through Anna K and nearly done with this audiobook 3y
Megabooks @Crazeedi I hope you had a good night‘s sleep!! Sorry for kind of rushing you with my comment. I‘ve been up alone and trying everything to calm it down!! 3y

Crazeedi @Megabooks I've been awake since 4, so no worries. Sounds like you tried everything I can think of, besides a massage. But you cant massage yourself! You did do the vibration. Is is intestinal? Maybe Miralax if it is? I'm so sorry you're hurting, wish I could come comfort you❤ 3y
Megabooks @Crazeedi I tried to get my dad to massage my back before bed, but I couldn‘t make him understand what I needed. He put the voltaren on, which was nice. I think it‘s actual skeletal muscles that are cramping and not my internal ones. I think it‘s the weird position I took a nap in yesterday. I just can‘t sleep on my left side anymore. ☹️ thank you so much for understanding. 💙💙 I wish you didn‘t so well. 3y
Panic70 Sorry you had a long night. 😩 You might try electrolytes. Usually more than what is in Gatorade. Low magnesium can cause muscle cramps, as can low sodium or potassium. An epsom salt bath or magnesium spray is what I would suggest first. And then maybe pickle juice for the sodium. You can overdose on potassium so I suggest potassium rich foods like bananas, tomatoes, potatoes, or oranges. Possibly chocolate (magnesium) 😁 Hope you feel better. (edited) 3y
Crazeedi @Megabooks just thought of something, my husband uses homeopathic remedy for muscle cramps , hylands brand, called leg cramps, but it might work for any muscle cramps? He swears by it. 3y
Crazeedi @Megabooks and what @Panic70 says too 3y
Crazeedi @Megabooks and I hear you, my last hip replacement isnt right, cant sleep on left side, leg goes numb, and hip is clicking. Have to get appt. It gets discouraging. Along with trying adjust for back pain, ets, it's a struggle. I hope you get some rest. Hugs 3y
Megabooks @Panic70 thanks!! I always wonder if my muscle pain, which I‘m beginning to believe is neuralgia, is due to dehydration, etc., so I drink a 12 oz Gatorade a day. I‘m about to get A BUNCH of bloodwork run, so hopefully any persistent deficiencies will pop up. I‘ve had them before because of my celiac disease. 3y
Megabooks @Crazeedi thanks friend!! I‘ll look for the hylands. 💜💜 take care!! 3y
Panic70 @Megabooks. Wishing you luck! I‘m the caregiver for my husband and he has daily pain. He‘s had so many unsuccessful injections. Nerve blocks mostly. He recently had to discontinue lyrica due to it made him dizzy and he was falling. There‘s never been a clear answer for the pain other than bad discs. Pain management has helped though and they‘re always trying something new. He has a thermazone hot/cold water device that helps. 3y
Megabooks @Panic70 yikes!! Yes, nerve blocks can be dicey. I had my hyoid bone broken in a faulty nerve block when I was 17. I couldn‘t talk and was on a liquid diet for months. I made signs with common phrases. It was terrible. You and your husband have my sympathy and empathy as a fellow chronic pain patient. 💞💞💞 (For me, a car accident then fall down flight of marble stairs.) 3y

Book 8 of 2020 #ToNightOwlFromDogfish by Holly Goldberg Sloan and Meg Wolitzer - This book is so sweet and charming - and a little bittersweet - but so good! Bett and Avery are thrown together at camp when their newly-in-love dads head to China. They are supposed to bond so their new family can be formed. Part Parent Trap, part adventure, part caper... I cannot wait to share this with my students! Love this one - highly recommend!5 ⭐️

Posting a book that gave me all the emotions @ljuliel

Read this one earlier this year for #lmpbc and I felt all the things! Happy, sad, and everything in between. Written for middle graders, it‘s an epistolary novel that follows the friendship developing between two girls whose gay dads start dating and decide to send them to summer camp together. I laughed and I cried so hard... it is undoubtedly a must read for all ages. ❤️😭😍

ljuliel That sounds like such a neat idea for a book. I‘m glad you enjoyed it so much. 3y

I absolutely loved To Night Owl from Dogfish, an epistolary, middle-grade novel from Holly Goldberg Sloan and Meg Wolitzer. Told entirely through emails and letters, the book is about the friendship between Averly and Bett. When their fathers' romance culminates in a plot to make the girls friends by sending them to the CIGI camp for the summer. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod When the girls uncover the plot, a flurry of emails begin, and the girls team up in an attempt to defy their fathers' plans. The unexpected, of course, ensues. Sloan and Wolitzer broaden the girls' correspondence with accents from their dads, Bett's grandma Gaga, Avery's biological mother, and a sprinkling of other characters. ⬇️ 3y
UnabridgedPod We come to understand Avery's anxiety, Bett's commitment to adventure, and the ways that relationships can rise and fall. Gorgeous, resonant, and emotional novel. 3y

I loved this middle grade summer camp novel, told in emails and letters between two very different girls. Avery and Bett are thrown together when their dads, who are dating, send them off (unwillingly) to the same camp. Other voices chime in throughout the novel, and the full cast recording was fantastic. It‘s a sweet update on a Parent Trap-type story, and I was rooting for everyone to find their happy ending.

This last book from our #lmpbc group was also sent out. While I loved all four books the group chose, this one was hands down my absolute favorite! The story is told through emails and letters, mostly between Avery and Bett with a few from the grown-ups in their lives. I laughed, I cried, I finished it in less than 24 hours as I literally could not put it down (thank goodness it was a weekend so I could shirk all other duties to read this). ❤️😆😭

This was an impulse grab from the library because of Meg Wolitzer ( I loved The Interestings) and it‘s epistolary and the 2 letter writers are going/at camp so a perfect summer read. It is such a great book. The girls are perfect, smart, flawed, funny. There are events you see coming and you just want to close your eyes but others that you don‘t and leave you stunned. I cried at the end. How‘s that for a Young Reader ❤️

I did not expect to love this as much as I did. I thought it was a great modern take on The Parent Trap. I almost wouldn‘t recommend the audio because for the first two hours, the characters respond to the same e-mail chain and if I have to hear the phrase re re re re re: You don‘t know me again, I might lose it. But besides that, the cast for the audiobook did a great job and really brought the characters to life. #diversemiddlegrade #booked2019

I love Meg Wolitzer, so I was psyched to read this middle-grade, epistolary novel co-written by her & Holly Sloan. A few pages in, I became worried that the authors captured the authentic voices of two 12-year-old girls TOO WELL. I was a little annoyed by them, tbh. But soon enough I was charmed by Bet, Avery & their assorted cast of grown-ups. Each character has so much heart, & they work so hard both to protect their hearts & open them up. 👇🏻

monalyisha 1/1: I think the narrative captures the utter normalcy & specific challenges of growing up with gay parents/single parents. Wolitzer & Goldberg-Sloan explore issues such as: racism, classism, homophobia, & menstruation in a completely age-appropriate way. The tone is serious when it needs to be, & so quirky & funny when it doesn‘t. I‘ll be recommending this to the 5th & 6th grade students/patrons at my library, for sure. (edited) 4y

Holly Goldberg Sloan and Meg Wolitzer‘s middle grade humorous contemporary novel (for children aged 9+) is an LGBTQ+ friendly take on THE PARENT TRAP. I very much enjoyed the epistolary format as the girls exchange emails and try to come up with a plan to fix their problem and while some of the plot twists are obvious, others come out from left field so that you‘re left with a charming, funny read with good diversity.

“You don‘t know me, but I‘m writing you anyway.”

When Bett Devlin reaches out to Avery Allenberry Bloom to explain that their dads are in love - she has no desire to be friends. Definitely not sisters.

And this starts the most diverse, gorgeous, laugh out loud middle grade novel I‘ve ever read.

Using this one for #booked2019 #diversemiddlegrade

If you‘re think about reading this - what are you waiting for?

All the stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Perfect. Wonderful. Catch my full review on GR and LT. I‘ll say no more here since it‘s #lmpbc selection for the middle grade group.

@WanderingBookaneer not in one sitting but in 24 hours. I‘ll get it in the mail late this week or weekend. @Readergrrl @MeganAnn
