Book Review #997
A Corner of the Universe by Ann M. Martin
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I thought the premise of this book sounded interesting and I wanted to see how the author would handle the story. I was disappointed with the characters and felt like a lot of them fell flat. I didn't see how this summer changed the life of Hattie in such a drastic way that her whole outlook was different. I also didn't care for the ending at all. I didn't enjoy this book and felt like it didn't deserve the Newbery Honor. I would not recommend.
