Student Saturday: Sand Dollar Summer - Kimberly K. Jones

Student Saturday is a way for me to showcase what my students are reading.  Please be kind with your comments.  These students are learning to write reviews.  Today's review is written by Triana.

I really loved this book.  I loved that it took place at a beach house.  Anyone who loves the beach will want to read this book.  Lise and her brothers are at home watching TV when a cop knocks on their door.  She tells her brothers to stay where they are while she talks to the cops.  The cop tells her hat her mom has been hurt in a car accident.  Go forward a little bit.  Their mom is better and takes them to a beach house for the summer.  All these secrets start spilling out during the summer.  Lise is worried about why her mom is changing.  She doesn't understand why this is their first time to the beach when her mom grew up there.  If you want to learn more then read the book.

  1. This book sounds like a great summer read. I'll have to make note of it to read at the beach next year. Thanks for the review!
