Katherine Applegate í 8 Characters

Crenshaw Review ð 8 To Jackson's life to help him But is an imaginary friend enough to save this family from losing everythingBeloved author Katherine Applegate proves in unexpected ways that friends matter whether real or imaginar. First off for a book titled Crenshaw the cover depicting the cat I expected him to have a much larger impact on the book than he actually did Crenshaw is Jackson s imaginary friend as mentioned IF s come into lives mostly during times of stress so Applegate had a massive opportunity to make Crenshaw a positive character aiding Jackson in a vulnerable time of need Instead she chooses to have Crenshaw make periodic appearances with ridiculously cliche lines completely ruining his character I didn t expect this book to be sunshine roses but when you add in the magic of an imaginary friend don t disregard the impact they can make on a childI also think the topic of homelessness was dealt with a bit rash unrealistic Jackson s parents on are opposite sides of asking for help his mother wants to his father who has been diagnosed with MS has difficulty with work refuses to sees asking for help as failing causing tension making Jackson believe he needs to take on adult problems For MG books dealing with kids with extra responsibility HOUSE ARREST dealt with this issue so much better It was aggravating to have parents with egos making their kids pay the conseuences Yes asking for help doesn t automatically make things better but it could have taken a little bit of the pressure off Jackson The book ends with their father getting a job at a music store with an apartment attachment how convenient It doesn t solve their problems permanently but again Applegate was in a position to bring awareness to the homelessness epidemic instead of bringing a hard hitting story that will stay with you it just reminds me of a fairy tale where the MC gets to wake up from a bad dream I ll stick to FLY AWAY HOME

Review CrenshawCrenshaw

Crenshaw Review ð 8 O money for rent And not much for food either His parents his little sister and their dog may have to live in their minivan AgainCrenshaw is a cat He's large he's outspoken and he's imaginary He has come back in. This is a book I read with my daughter she is ten She gave it 4 stars Her favorite character was Crenshaw She said it was a good book because it showed a family that had financial issues They sometimes lived in their van and couldn t find work They went from apartment to apartment The mother father Jackson the son the sister Abigail and the dog ArethaSome of their toys and stuff had to be sold in garage sales and once the father sat on a corner and had to ask for money Crenshaw is the imaginary friend for Jackson while all this is happeningI didn t personally find it all that intriguing except I agree that it is important to show families that struggle and aren t cookie cutter perfect I expected fantasy but there is a lot of realism here some of it perhaps uncomfortable but age appropriate
