me with My Diary From The Edge Of The World


My Diary From The Edge Of The World is a beautiful fantasy story that I guarantee you will remember long after the cover closes. It is very realistic besides for the fact that the book is crawling with fantasy creatures. This book has definitely found a place in my heart and I don’t think I will be forgetting it anytime soon. I love Jodi Lynn Anderson‘s writing style and how her words create a perfect picture in your mind. She also wrote the May Bird series as well as the young adult books, The Vanishing Season and Tiger Lily all of which I would like to read eventually. The story is written from the perspective of a twelve year old girl named Gracie, who goes on a journey with her family and faces many joyful and heartbreaking moments along the way. For me this was a really different reading experience because it is written in a different form and perspective than my normal books like I’m literally reading someone’s diary. This book is a must read for everyone and I love it so much!
