A while ago I got the chance to review a book for a website called http://motherdaughterbookreviews.com/.
This book is Reality Natalie by Katie Sparks.
I had a terrific time reading Reality Natalie. Though this book is geared toward 4-6 grade girls, the themes and characters in this book appeal to boys and girls alike. As an 11 year old boy I found that I could relate to Natalie and her friends easy. Like her I have my own blog where I interview people in my community. To have a chance, like Natalie to audition for a ‘Dream Interview’ job would be the best. My dream job is to be one of the Scholastic Kid Reporters. Natalie's is to be the guest host of her favorite kid talk show. It gets hard when her best friend who is good at everything wants the job too.
I really enjoyed how this book is centered around the themes of friendship, teamwork and honesty. These things aren’t always easy for kids my age to handle. Natalie and her classmates find out that even if doing these aren’t easy, it is totally worth it to do your best to try, that you can find friendship in the most unexpected places, and no matter how weird or unconventional you are, doing what you do best can help you achieve your dreams.
Parents, I totally recommend this book for your tween girls and their best friends. Teachers, I would recommend this book for your whole class. They will all find someone in the story to relate to and learn some great lessons about growing up.
"That's a Wrap" If you do decide to read this book, I hope you like it as much as I did.
Mom helped me post a review to Amazon.com (turns out there is more to it than just writing a review), you can catch it HERE. Reality Natalie is available for both kindle and in paperback.
