    You should really read this book

    This was an amazing book with a powerful lesson. The story was realistic and you could apply it to situations in your own life. Ida B was a hilarious character, and I enjoyed every page of this book.

    Ida B…and her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World

    Have you ever had an imaginary fiend? One that will always be with you, always is there to talk too, and always on your side? The main character in the story, Ida B, has many imaginary friends, but they aren’t your typical imaginary friends. Ida B’s imaginary friends are trees, bushes, and streams that live in his backyard. This book is a perfect choice for young readers. Not only is it easy to read but also it captures the reader’s attention quickly. I’m usually not the type to finish a book or even read it, but this book grabbed my attention like no other.

    This book doesn’t have much suspense, but it does have a lot of drama. Ida B had a life you could only dream of, her life goes from perfect to horrible in a matter of a month. Ida B is home schooled until her mother starts to get sick. Her mother getting sick ruins the atmosphere of their perfect household. The sickness effects of course Ida B, her dad, their dog, and the ability to do things they used to do. It really makes you realize how something so good can turn to so horrible in a flash.

    The characters in this book are just what you would imagine. The father is the leader of the family, strict, protective, and wise, while the mother, is more on the calmer and nicer side. Ida B is the all around playful nine year old as people would expect. She likes to go outside, get dirty and be adventurous. Even though she is a girl she acts more boyish than a normal girl would act. She doesn’t have any real friends but the trees and bushes in her backyard because she is home schooled. In her extra time she likes to go outside and talk to them and predict what they would say back to her. You might say she has a huge imagination.
    The plot is very intense. The conflict is man vs himself. One day Ida B is running around and having fun and the next day she has to go back to public school, which she hates. Not only does she have to go back to public school but also she has to come home to a sick mother and a clueless father. All this stress has really gotten to Ida B. She refuses to make friends at school and even look like she is enjoying herself. She takes all her anger out on her imaginary friends ( the trees and bushes) and soon has no one to talk to.

    I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books with drama. This book has very happy parts and very sad parts. I have to say, its probably one of the best books a young reader could read. I’ve enjoyed reading this book and I’m sure you will too.

    Ida b. Whitneys review

    Ida has a lot of ups and downs like being hoomeschooled and going to public school. I feel lkke her sometimes especily when shes at recess and she says no whenever she gets asked to play she doesnt really follow the crwod shes indapendant thats only becase she dosent like public school. The hardest time she had was when her mom had cancer and lost her hair and would just lay in bed. Ida B. Missed her mom reading to her and all the other things she did for her. Another reason she didnt like public school was because they did not call her Ida B. The teacher said " this is 3rd grade we dont go by nicknames" or something like that. It kept me feeling her pain like i was her. I felt like i was her doing everything she did. Like I was liveing her life. I enjoyed this book so much i hope u do to! Best wishes : Whitney L.

    Wonderfully Written

    This is the world through the eyes of a young girl, happy as a lark until an unfortunate event. This tells of how she tries to deal with her new situation, and what she learns on the way. Funny at times, sad other times, but beautifully portrayed characterization.

    Pros and Cons

    Ida B is a well-written book, but it does not have much suspense and put me in a bad mood for about 48 hours after I read it. Usually I read books over and over again, but I did not do that with this book.
