All the Impossible Things -- Book Review

Disclosure: We were sent this book for free in exchange for a review. All opinions are our own. 

Today we get to share a new novel by Lindsay Lackey called All the Impossible Things. This book is being released today! It is recommended for ages 8 to 12 and since Hazel is in that age, she is sharing the book today.

 All of the Impossible Things by Lindsay Lackey is a heartwarming novel about a young girl named Ruby, who is called Red, trying to find her place in the world, while being moved from house to house in foster care. She's counting down the days until her mother is released from prison, and then she meets Celine and Jackson. The couple owns a petting zoo and welcomes Red with open arms. Suddenly, she feels like she belongs. They understand her quirks. She finds herself missing/loving her mom less and less. But the final straw is when she finds the drug her mom said she wasn't taking again in her bathroom. Red's done with the lies and disrespect. For years her mom left her to practically fend for herself, take care of her grandma with cancer, and it didn't help that her mother's uncanny ability over the wind was often used against them. And when her mom basically deserts Red, she really loses it. I will let you find out the rest. 
I love that this story shows the love and bond of foster families, and that families come in all shapes and sizes. I read this book in one sitting, for it is so amazingly sweet and emotional. I think this is a book for all ages and I definitely recommend it.

Hazel read this book very quickly. In fact I believe it may have been in one day. She did not want to put it down and she told me she really loved it.
