Hi everyone! It’s time for another book review! I finished this book a couple days ago but I realized I didn’t review it.
This is a Historic Fiction book that is set in 1969. Sisters Delphine, Vonetta and Farm are going to Alabama to visit Big Ma and her 82 year old mother Ma Charles. Across the field, through the pines, and over the creek is where Ma Charles’s half sister Mrs. Trotter lives. The two half sisters haven’t spoken in years and are determined to hold on to their version of the truth. Overly Dramatic Vonetta serves as their messenger as they trade back and forth their versions of what really happened throughout their lives. Delphine struggles to try to bring the siblings back together. In the middle of it all, Delphine and her sisters learn about family history that happened long ago and brought a hurt that possibly couldn’t be fixed. When tragedy comes to the Alabama farm, Delphine discovers that the bonds of family run deeper than she thought possible. This is a companion to One Crazy Summer and P.S. Be Eleven.
Book: Gone Crazy in Alabama
Author: Rita Williams-Garcia
Recommended age range: 8-12
I’m a bit older then twelve so I think pretty much anyone could read it if they’re 8+
My rating: 5 stars!
Do I recommend it? Yes! It’s a great book for anyone who loves historic fiction, adventure, and family type books. It is considered a children’s book so it doesn’t contain any language.
Let me know if you want to or did read this book!
