A new student review of Azalea, Unschooled by Liza Kleinman

GlowElm posted a new student review of Azalea, Unschooled by Liza Kleinman. See the full review.

Though this was a really fun read, I really wasn't expecting it to be about a girl doing detective work. From the summary provided, you would guess it would be more about her experience as an unschooler, and her internal and external struggles with moving so much and feeling constantly uprooted. Written in first person, this book clearly represents Azalea's feelings, and it is easy to vizualize her situation and her friends and family.

I reccomend this novel for readers between 8-12 who enjoy books centered around a female character, who like detective work and a fun plot, or who simply want to find out more about unschooling.
