Eventown

Eventown The world tilted for Elodee this year, and now it s impossible for her to be the same as she was before Not when her feelings have such a strong grip on her heart Not when she and her twin sister, Naomi, seem to be drifting apart So when Elodee s mom gets a new job in Eventown, moving seems like it might just fix everything.Indeed, life in Eventown is comforting and exciting all at once Their kitchen comes with a box of recipes for Elodee to try Everyone takes the scenic way to school or work past rows of rosebushes and unexpected waterfalls On blueberry picking field trips, every berry is perfectly ripe.Sure, there are a few odd rules, and the houses all look exactly alike, but it s easy enough to explain until Elodee realizes that there are only three ice cream flavors in Eventown Ever And they play only one song in music class.Everything may be even in Eventown, but is there a price to pay for perfection and pretending Download Eventown – rarefishingbooks.co.uk Every year various dictionaries and encyclopedias try to determine what the Word of the Year is, and every year they make some pretty good choices Here s one that I don t think they ve done yet, but that s been on a lot of minds anyway Discomfort There s been a lot of talk about it lately, particularly in terms of the value of uncomfortable valuable conversations I am, personally, a person who tends to avoid discomfort at all costs, and my privilege is that I can too often do so Only becaus Every year various dictionaries and encyclopedias try to determine what the Word of the Year is, and every year they make some pretty good choices Here s one that I don t think they ve done yet, but that s been on a lot of minds anyway Discomfort There s been a lot of talk about it lately, particularly in terms of the value of uncomfortable valuable conversations I am, personal

With a blurb from Rebecca Stead, Eventown was a highly anticipated book for me However, I found it too slow paced for its climax, which hinges on a reveal of information that is only hidden because of narrative manipulation Eventown is narrated by Elodee, a sixth grader who bakes cookies for people based on their personalities She has a twin sister, Naomi, who likes gymnastics so much she does cartwheels almost as much as she walks They have a dad who likes to garden and a mom who not qui With a
