Overview

The Outlandish Adventures of Liberty Aimes by Kelly Easton, Greg Swearingen

Everyone has a destiny. Sometimes it takes an adventure to find it.

Liberty Aimes has spent all of her ten years captive in her parents' crooked house on Gooch Street. Her spry father, Mal Aimes, is a crook who sells insurance, while her overweight mother sits at home in front of the TV, demanding that Liberty cook nonstop. Liberty’s only knowledge of the outside world comes from the secret stash of children’s books and fairy tales she discovers beneath the floorboards. One day, Liberty enters her father’s forbidden basement laboratory. There she discovers a world of talking animals and magic potions. With the aid of one such potion, Liberty escapes into the world in search of her destiny.

Life at 33 Gooch isn't exactly what most children dream of. In fact, it more resembles the life poor Cinderella had, before being rescued by the prince. "Homeschooled" by her parents, Liberty Aimes is not allowed outside, and does all the cooking and cleaning. But one day, life changes more than she could have imagined, and Liberty finds herself outside her odd, little home. With the goal of reaching the renowned Sullivan School, she makes her way across the city, running into strange characters - some of which she learns the hard way are scoundrels. Unlike Cinderella, Liberty doesn't meet a prince. But she does meet some very nice people who try to help her on her adventure. And ultimately, one of the meanest scoundrels finally meets justice. This fun story will keep children involved from the first moment they meet Liberty. Although beaten down verbally, she shows remarkable pluck and determination to make something of herself. And the wacky cast of characters she runs into will keep kids chuckling at their antics. I highly recommend The Outlandish Adventures of Liberty Aimes. Reviewer: Alice Berger, Bergers Book Reviews

As a fourth grade teacher, I found this book to be appropriate for this age. However, I wouldn't recommend it for second language learners or students with a weak vocabulary
