Iris by Stephanie Taylor

IrisIris by Stephanie Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this middle grades book about a young girl named Iris, who is dealing with many transitions in her  life.  Iris and her brother are still struggling with their parents divorce, when they learn their mom has taken a new job in America.  Iris is scared about leaving her father, and all her friends in Holland, but she soon finds out that America is not as scary as she thought it might be.  Iris makes a friend and even finds a boy that she really likes, but her brother is not willing to give up on his dream of reuniting his parents and restoring his family.  The book is written well for middle grade students and they will easily relate to these characters and their struggles.  Readers will appreciate the challenges Iris faces as she tries to be loyal to her brother while she adjusts to life in her new country.  I would highly recommend this book for middle grade students.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
