Letters from Vinnie was, for me, a learning experience. In this book Vinnie writes letters to her best friend. Through these letters we see Vinnies heart and dreams. And while Vinnie's dreams were unique, there was something even more unique about Vinnie. She had the courage to see her dreams through, despite what others said about her. I recommend Letters from Vinnie. Read it, enjoy it, be inspired. And dare to dream.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Even though 'Letters From Vinnie' is a Young Adult selection, our book club chose it as our latest selection. I was pleasantly surprised at what I learned (I had never heard of Vinnie Ream) and how the author captured my interest through Vinnie's letters to Regina. It's a charming and educational read. I'm now motivated to go to the library to learn more about Vinnie and her famous sculpture.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
