    Great Read

    My 11-year-old son needed help on the historical aspects - but was totally enthralled with the characters and story. We read it together and it was excellent. Great for history.

    shooting the moon o.k

    Shooting the moon wasnt really my kind of book.It was all about a girl whose brother goes into the army and when shes old enough she want's to go to because they have both dreamed about it since they were little. I just read it couse I was bored I guess. I am more of a girly girl than army type. I would recomend this book to people who like the army and would like to go into the army some day just not me. I encourage you to buy this book if you like that kind of things.

    FULL REVIEW 4 YOU GUYS

    Honestly some of u dong enjoy the book bcuz of things like no climax point or how the end may seem like the best part- but Honestly I dont think the huge message of the book is to be huge on war (bcuz if u want that read FALLEN ANGELS- WALTER DEAN MYERS) but this book gave me alot 2 think about and I felt that the message of the book was to show us that things arent always the way they seem. This would be van excellent book 4 kids tweens teens or even anyone 2 read if you take time 2 appreciate what its actually about. And so I deeply enjoyed it.

    Well Written But Pointless

    Jamie Dexter is twelve years old. She grew up playing army with her brother TJ because her dad was a colonel. But when TJ joins the army and is shipped off to Vietnam, Jamie wonders if he will ever come back. Jamie struggles with getting along with her father, who, despite being an army colonel, does not agree with TJ's choice to join the army. Join Jamie on her troublesome experience as she struggles with love, family, and gin rummy. Overall, I did not enjoy this book because there really wasn't a plot. While I was reading, I wasn't really sure when the climax was, because throughout the whole book there were really no major events. Her brother went to Vietnam, and she wasn't even sure of her feelings about this. The ending also left me confused, because it felt as if the author was tired of writing, and just slapped an ending on there so that they could send it to an editor and be done. I would recommend this book to six to ten year old girls who have nothing else to do, because there is no plot and the vocabulary is quite simple.

    Shooting the Moon - Frances O'Roark Dowell

    Excellent book for both teens and adults. Thought provoking...caused several discussions between my 12 year old and I. We enjoyed the characters and their underlying contributions to the story.

    This was amazing

    I personally loved this book. It was a very quick read, since it was only 89 pages. But i think this is a good book if you like books that kinda has no plot and goes through memories, emotions, and stories. It is sad, but thats probably because i cry at every book ever. Dont hesitate to read this if you are thinking of reading it. Its really amazing.
