Allmänna fakta

Sara Crowe



I feel like this book is just very disconnected and lacking in a lot of ways. The narrative format is interesting: 100 chapters made of 100 words each, but I don’t see how that helped the story along or added anything. The plot has quite a bit happening, as teenage Will deals with the aftermath of some terrible things that have happened to his family and best friend. But at the same time, I don’t think either issue was explored well, originally, or in a way that personally made me stop and think.
I feel sympathetic towards Will, and his friend Playa, but that’s about it. I just don’t feel moved by anything that happened, or affected by any of the vignettes of other characters. All in all, “What I Left Behind” felt very needlessly repetitive and cropped in a way that didn’t help the narrative.

I really enjoyed this. I see a lot of different opinions of it and perhaps as an older mother I am aware more than I might be that the odds say I have less somedays ahead of me.

It somewhat reminds me of Goose by Molly Bang.

This is a cute book of friendship between 2 girls, one older and one younger, who enjoy each other's company. I like the cute adventures, the friendly negotiations and the silly antics of little Bink. My son enjoys this book too, although it is intended as an easy reader, it is fun to read aloud. The illustrations are black and grey backgrounds with colorful children. I also like that these two each have their own apartment.
