    3.5 solid stars 12 year old Olympia is an artist living in SoHo in 1981, which isn t all that uncommon in her neighborhood Her father and his friend Apollo bring antique paintings back to life, while her mother sees the beauty in everything and makes intricate sculptures out of everyday ordinary items But one morning she wakes up and her father has left the country, leaving her and her mom alone and now her mom won t get out of bed The only thing he left behind was a cryptic note that he aske 3.5 solid stars 12 year old Olympia is an artist living in SoHo in 1981, which isn t all that uncommon in her neighborhood Her father and his friend Apollo bring antique paintings back to life, while her mother sees the beauty in everything and makes intricate sculptures out of everyday ordinary items But one morning she wakes up and her father has left the country, leaving her and her mom alone and now her mom won t get out of bed The only thing he left behind was a cryptic note that he asked for it to be destroyed Apollo is acting strange and someone keeps calling for missing artwork.This was a quiet, well written book that circles around family, friendship, art, and mystery It touches on the subject of depression and what it means living with a parent who suffers from depression It was easy to forget at times that Olympia was only 12 year old girl that did not know how to deal with her mother unable to get out of bed and some of the scenes tugged on my heartstrings for the little girl that held out hope But it was nice to see that when she finally let them, Olympia did have a great support network behind her back that ended up being there for when she needed them most I liked that it revolved around art and there was even a bit of a mystery thrown into the mix.Laura Tucker s writing overall is quiet and beautiful Tucker really knows how to flesh out her characters and make them appear human I found myself sympathizing with her.That being said, however, I struggled with the pacing of the book I felt like the story started out and ended strong, but it meandered a bit in the middle It could have been a bit shorter The subject matter for middle grade was a little hard, but depression can hit an adult any point in child life, even if it is something hard to read I also do wish the time period was used a bitin the writing The story is definitely very character and art driven, but it was set in 1981 in SoHo and I found the time and setting interesting choice.Overall I thought this was a lovely written debut that makes me extremely excited for future works from this author It touched on tough subjects, but very important ones I thought in general, the author handled it really well and I cannot wait to see what she does next

    This book was wonderful The author dealt beautifully with depression, specifically with the depressed mother a mixed media sculptor of main character Olympia Ollie Ollie feels she can t tell anyone else, not even her two best friends Alex and Richard, that her mother hasn t gotten out of bed in days This isn t her mother s first bout of depression, and she was adamant that if it happened again she didn t want to end up in the hospital Also, Ollie s father has taken off to France for some This book was wonderful The author dealt beautifully with depression, specifically with the depressed mother a mixed media sculptor of main character Olympia Ollie Ollie feels she can t tell anyone else, not even her two best friends Alex and Richard, that her mother hasn t gotten out of bed in days This isn t her mother s first bout of depression, and she was adamant that if it happened again she didn t want to end up in the hospital Also, Ollie s father has taken off to France for some unknown purpose he s an art restorer , and Ollie is afraid that she ll have nowhere to go if her mother ends up in the hospital Ollie tries to be a grown up and deal with her mother all on her own, and is afraid to reach out to anyone for help I went into this story knowing very little about it, and was glad afterwards that I d read it Depression was never discussed when I was growing up in fact, it was seen as shameful So a book like this would have been helpful then for understanding a little about depression.The characterizations of Ollie and her friends, and their friendship, were believable, and her desperation to fix everything all by herself felt real I also really enjoyed seeing the world as Ollie did she s a budding artist, and I liked how the author described Ollie s attention to details and her enthusiasm for drawing everything around her And, huge plus, Ollie likes cats

    In style and pace, not a kid s book but a grownup book with a kid protagonist Just a few days ago, I finished another book with a mom who wouldn t get out of bed The True History of Lyndie B Hawkins That ends up being what this book is about, but it takes a very long time for that to become clear The subplot with The Head turns out to be a real distraction It took me almost 200 pages to get into the groove of reading this, but it took me a long time to get into other books I ve read lat In style and pace, not a kid s book but a grownup book with a kid protagonist Just a few days ago, I finished another book with a mom who wouldn t get out of bed The True History of Lyndie B Hawkins That ends up being what this book is about, but it takes a very long time for that to become clear The subplot with The Head turns out to be a real distraction It took me almost 200 pages to get into the groove of reading this, but it took me a long time to get into other books I ve read lately too A Place to Belong, Other Words for Home so maybe it s me

    I found this painfully slow The main character s father runs off to France before the novel begins and then nothing really happens for a good, long while The book is about a child in fairly a desperate situation but there is little urgency to the narrative I also didn t think that Olympia made a convincing 12 year old, and I got tired of all her description I think the middle grade readers this is really directed to will have a very hard time sticking with it.

    Mental illness, broken families, parental infidelitynot the most pleasant topics to read or write about in children s fiction, but sadly most necessary as many children tweens teens face such traumas and trials in real life every day And Laura Tucker did an exceptional job with characterization, storyline, and decorum Art and friendship as major themes throughout made it all thereadable 4.25 STARS

    There arebooks being written for a middle grade audience revolving around mental illness This is one This one interestingly takes place in 1981 in SoHo, New York City I found the setting especially interesting since I knew little about SoHo in the 1980s That Olympia and her family lived in a large, open room in an old factory was fascinating to me The details about art and the creation of it were new to me as well The details about how different paint colors are made was especially f There arebooks being written for a middle grade audience revolving around mental illness This is one This one interestingly takes place in 1981 in SoHo, New York City I found the setting especially interesting since I knew little about SoHo in the 1980s That Olympia and her family lived in a large, open room in an old factory was fascinating to me The details about art and the creation of it were new to me as well The details about how different paint colors are made was especially fascinating to me However, the story is not a particularly happy one, which I didn t enjoy so much Olympia finds herself in a pickle Her father has run off with his girlfriend to return a piece of art that doesn t belong to him he stole it , leaving her and her depressed mother in the lurch With her mother unable to get out of bed, Olympia is left to take care of herself And she doesn t want to tell anyone because it feels like betraying her family But finally she tells one of her friends Eventually, her friend, Alex tells her father s business partner, Apollo, about her mother Olympia feels betrayed, even though she knows that her mother needs help Spending some time with Alex and his family on vacation helps her deal with some of her feelings But an additional tragedy leaves her reeling once again, wondering what s going to happen to her The story is very well written and plotted, the characters are appealing and interesting in their differences Young readers who enjoy thoughtful, issue stories will likely enjoy this one It does have a hopeful ending despite the ongoing challenges in Olympia s life I picked up the book because it was billed as a bit of a mystery, but it isn t really The mystery of Olympia s father s disappearance is fairly easy to figure out fairly early in the story at least for me The main story line focuses on Olympia and her mother s condition A thoughtful, historical story revolving around the challenges that come with mental illness and the power of having an outlet for one s fears
