Sometimes life can change in an instantMartha Boyle and Olive Barstow could have been friends but they weren't Weeks after a tragic accident all that is left are eerie co I don't read a lot of young adult fiction and it's not because I don't like it What I have read in this genre I have liked and there are young adult authors doing stuff in the genre that is phenomenal I just haven't read much of it I'm not sure whyI think part of the problem for me is that it is such a huge genre Young adults are a strong and powerful demographic amongst book buyers I'm actually an oddball adult male As a demographic we simply don't buy or read a lot Most of the books that are being published are being targeted towards children of toddler age to late teens Just go to your local bookstore and see one of the largest sections in the store is almost invariably the children's area which often includes a large section devoted to teens And within that large genre of young adult are the many subcategories teen romance teen fantasy teen actionadventure teen nonfiction Many of these cross over into each other Twilight for example is both teen romance AND teen fantasy befuddling the whole issue for us adults It's such a huge genre I simply don't know where to startThankfully my wife and I recently did something that helped me become a discerning consumer when it comes to books and helped me figure out a starting point for young adult fiction we had a kid A little girl to be exactI can only speak for myself and as a guy when I say that I honestly didn't read a lot of girl fiction growing up Other than some Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary there was a whole slew of books I ignored on bookstore shelves The covers clued me in They usually had pictures of girls looking in mirrors or standing on the beach or rocking out with their other girlfriends with their Walkmans Yes I'm dating myself I had no interest in these books because they most likely involved stuff like dating and menstruation and tear jerky death bed scenes of beloved grandparents My tastes ran toward Choose your own adventure Encyclopedia Brown and books with spaceships and aliens on the coverBut I have a little girl now and it's been an exciting prospect putting together a collection of books that she will hopefully enjoy Right now it's mostly picture books but I have started thinking about the future and some of the books that she may encounter in her middle school and high school career Thanks also to my wife who has introduced me to a wide variety of books that I had either never wanted to read or never knew existed She proudly admits to having read most if not all of the Babysitters Club series She read a few Sweet Valley High books too These books literally terrify meSo I started simple I picked up a random book that looked like it would appeal to girls but that wasn't so in your face girly if you know what I mean While it was written by a man possible red flag it was also a Newberry Honor Book I knew that the Newberry Awards awarded the best in children's and young adult fiction so that showed promise I honestly didn't know what to expect To be honest I didn't expect much What could be that profound about middle school age kids I've taught middle school They are mostly cretins Andor flibberdijibbits They are mostly silly and annoying creatures who have serious hormone issuesI did NOT expect to like it as much as I did nor be as profoundly moved by the story as I was Kevin Henkes the author of Olive's Ocean has created a short but powerful and sweetly honest little novel about a young girl dealing with a myriad of adult issues all thrown at her at onceThe protagonist is 12 year old Martha Boyle who is about to go on family vacation to visit her grandmother Just before leaving she is visited by the mother of a young girl in her class who recently tragically died in a car accident Martha did not know Olive Barstow well They were friendly but not friends Martha rarely ever talked to her Olive's mother gives her a letter written by Olive who says some very nice things about Martha in it including how she would like to be a writer like MarthaThis letter haunts Martha for the rest of the novel most especially because she has only recently decided that she wants to be a writer She has not shared this fact with anyone including her best friend or her parents let alone some girl she barely knew How did Olive knowAs if that wasn't enough to worry about Martha starts to have feelings for Jimmy Manning a boy she has known for years but has never looked at in any boyfriend girlfriend kind of way WeirdAdd to the mix slightly dysfunctional but loving parents a grandmother who repeatedly hints that she may be dying a yucky older brother and an annoying little baby sisterThere is much to love in this book Henkes has the rare ability to say a lot with a few words Indeed his short chapters some are no than a paragraph and beautiful poetic prose make the story flow wonderfully and is perfect for telling Martha's sweet story of growing up and dealing with death and family and loveThis is definitely a book that I will gladly put on my daughter's shelf when

Nnections between the two girls former classmates who both kept the same secret without knowing it Now even while on vacation at the ocean Martha can't stop thinking abou This has been on my list of books to read for a long time and it was an excellent and very uick read I didn't WANT to put it down and go to sleep last night but had to finish it this morning It's a very cozy family story with tragedy threatening as it often does in real life I think the reason this took me so long to read is that it came out the year that my grandma died From reading Henkes' SUN SPOON I knew that he writes superbly about relationships between grandparents and grandchildren and that I wouldn't be able to take that poignancy for a few years I was right to wait but I'm glad that it was time for me to read this I won't forget Martha and Godbee anytime soon
