Ivy Aberdeen's Letter to the World Reviews
I want to adopt this girl and protect her from the world! Why do middle grade books keeping making me cry?! I'll have to buy my own copy
Beautiful journey of a preteen that navigates her first crush, a family disaster and her relationship with her best friend. Wonderful and well-done story.
As the author of another book that could be described as "girl loses house to tornado," what I loved in reading this was seeing how differently another person can approach the same general concept. I absolutely LOVED the direction Ashley Herring Blake takes her book -- Ivy's journey of self-discovery felt so true to that age and the details of the tornado itself was so vivid and fully realized.

Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World was a book I knew I was going to love before I even started it. I have read two others of Ashley Herring Blake’s works and loved them.

Ashley Herring Blake does it again. She's crafted another perfect book about family and love and loss, all centered around a 12 year old girl who's discovering her identity.

This story is important and gorgeous and stunning and I highly, highly recommend it.
This might just be me. But does this vaguly sound like a gender bent Alexander Hamilton. She's writing her way out.
