Kort biografi
Sara Young graduated with a BA from Marietta College in Ohio. Under the name Sara Pennypacker, she has written seven books for children, including the acclaimed Stuart series (Stuart's Cape) and the Clementine series. She lives on Cape Cod.



I loved returning to these characters. Peter is broken from the heartbreak of the last book and Pax has established his own family. Seeing how those two can help each other with healing and growth was beautiful.

Clementine is entirely delightful. I love a smart, curious, trouble-making girl with a sweet heart and love in her family. Clementine is full of ideas and shenanigans.The illustrations are sweet. I picked this book up to browse at the library and laughed enough in the first chapters to bring it home to finish. It is tricky to write a funny kid book where the kid does not turn into a little jerkface, but Clementine has plenty of heart and honesty, even if she did cut off all her best friend's hair.… (mere)

Jeez, here I go again, not really digging another big release of 2016 by an author I love (see my review of [b:Raymie Nightingale|25937866|Raymie Nightingale|Kate DiCamillo|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1446751148s/25937866.jpg|45835163]). What is up? I don't know. Maybe I'm just not the right reader for such major bummer, sadsadsadness right now.

My biggest issue with this book is that the setting is completely ambiguous and I struggled with it throughout the book. When and where does it take place? In what world is there a little league game taking place a few miles from a war zone?

It's also become a really tired cliche for a sad kid to randomly meet a magical friend who fixes them (and, of course, the kid fixes the friend, too). I could go a good ten years without reading another story where that is a major plot line. Peter and Vola are both characters with a lot of backstory, but I still didn't feel like they had real depth. They both came off as flat portrayals of sadness and guilt personified.

I don't mean to vent about this book, because it did have some good parts (e.g. Pax's POV), but as I sit to write this review I'm just frustrated that both Pennypacker and DiCamillo have disappointed me so far this year. Ladies, I love you, but you're bringing me down.
