A High Wind in Jamaica | Richard Hughes

This book is deeply weird. In theory I think it‘s supposed to reveal the “true nature” of children, and I suppose by extension, all of humanity, but it gets so many things wrong. Proving old men know nothing about children. That said, the MC‘s surprising abilities, and the tendency of adults to underestimate her, I did find more interesting than the rest of the book.

What a great start to a cute series! I was pleased with the setups and little twists. There was quite a bit of backstory and at first I thought it was just there to be there, but it all paid off. My son and I are looking forward to reading the next one.

This one isn‘t working for me for a number of reasons. I found another option for #Gabon, so bailing is the best choice for me.

BarbaraBB It was no succes for me either but I did finish it because I had no alternative for Gabon! (edited) 16h
Hooked_on_books @BarbaraBB Before I officially bailed I looked into finding something else at my library. I‘m really glad I found another option, and I would have been unhappy pushing through this. 6h

Alot of information, but not as good as I thought it would be.

@batsy Front covers for the Ransome books. The backs have an illustration from inside the book.

This book made me anxious! It‘s about doing the right thing, even if it‘s the hard thing to do. For a YA book, it was sad but has a good lesson. I loved that it takes place where I live and I didn‘t realize the author lives 20 minutes or so from me, so yay for local authors! It‘s a so-so for me because it didn‘t feel unique, and too much like a lesson for teens to learn from.

Long weekend calls for a decadent Argentinian tart and this ‘winter‘ book. I had set this book aside for winter months but I was in the mood for some adventure. Glad I gave in because I‘m thoroughly enjoying it. ❄️🌊❄️ #currentlyreading

Rereading a book 20+ years later with the next generation is so fun. I remembered so much but forgot little details that kept me captivated even all these years later.
