Book 49: Good… very realistic with great characters and full of tender hearts…. I’ll def. put it in my YA section because I think 7th grade and up readers are needed to appreciate the scenarios and dilemmas presented here. I am unsure of one particular character’s dialog (done to reflect his strong regional accent) — it really stopped the flow of the reading because there is SO much inconsistency (ya, yer, you, your — all in one stretch of the same speech… — plus other awkward spellings that simply do not give me a great mental “sound picture” — I am baffled as to why this author felt the need to highlight this particular supporting character’s accent while where the character originally came from has no bearing in the story whatsoever, and while everyone else in the story has no special speech patterns at all.
