Very enjoyable! I can understand why this is required reading for Hunter's English class. Although it is lower level, it has some great teachable elements in regards to writing.

This was a personal favorite of the 2024 Nutmeg Intermediate Nominee list. I read the book for pleasure and read it again aloud with my class of 5th grade students. It was a text that brought up multiple social issues including: financial challenges, loss of family members, guide dogs and visual impairment, trauma, and different types of living styles. Although it covered many different challenging topics, it was a pleasure to read because of the characters wit, positive attitude, and being centered all around dogs! Who doesn’t love a cute puppy story!

One of my favorite parts of the book was the way the author used different types of text (bold, italics, font, and page structure) to write in different ways and convey ideas. For example, she had the main character write letters, make lists, write songs and poems. It added a nice dynamic to the text and allowed the reader to get inside Olive, the main character's mind.

I also loved the relationship between the sisters, Olive and Maudie. You could feel their challenges and growth of relationships throughout the book. As a read aloud some prompting questions that I used were…
1. How did Maudie and Olive’s relationship change throughout the book?
2. How did Maudie act like a mother, but still a sister and friend to Olive?
3. What are some of the challenges Olive had to face trying to raise a guide dog? How did it help her grow as a person?
4. What was unique about the Stay Awhile home? How is it similar or different to other types of homes?

I'm having trouble remembering this book other than snippets (which is not unexpected when pulling a book from the "put this in Librarything eventually pile). It was a good story, and engaging when I was reading it, but I'm not going to reread it. I guess this one's more relevant than even when it was written in the early 2000s, because with influencer culture a kid actually could become famous for baking really good cupcakes with luck and the right personality.
