The first day Delphine and her sisters get back from visiting their mother in Oakland, California, Delphine realizes nothing is the same back home in Brooklyn.

The first day Delphine and her sisters get back from visiting their mother in Oakland, California, Delphine realizes nothing is the same back home in Brooklyn.

That’s at least what she thought until she realizes how much she and her sisters, Vonetta and Fern, have changed too. Delphine is a eleven year old girl and far to mature for her age. Delphine’s younger sisters, Vonetta and Fern, have minds of their own. This story takes place in the 1960’s after three sisters, Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern have taken a trip for the first time to visit their mother in Oakland, California.

 

When I read this book, I was taken everywhere, from the tippy top of a mountain to a comedy show. Reading this book you must understand every moment that pulls you more and more into the story, that sucks you in as you become a character. I thought this book was absolutely brilliant. Rita Williams-Garcia writes with a real eleven year old’s perspective. I think this because I can practically see through the characters eyes.

 

‘Be Eleven’ is the sequel to ‘One Crazy Summer’ winning multiple awards. The wonderful New York Times Best Selling author for these books is Rita Williams-Garcia. Both books would be enjoyed by any 9 year old or older. DEFINITELY READ ‘One Crazy Summer’ FIRST!!!!! This book is a spectacular book that will open its arms to you or any other!!
