Remembering Kaylee Cooper a Book Review
Remembering Kaylee Cooper is an intriguing story between reality and the unknown. The author does a wonderful job of narrating a story of a preteen boy and a girl caught between two worlds. I found this book to be very engaging and just the perfect length for young readers. Follow Alex on the adventure of a lifetime and find yourself in an engrossing story of coming to age and being caught between this world and beyond. Once I began reading this book, I couldn’t put it down, and thought how my own children would enjoy reading this story. If you are looking for a good book to read and like the stories about life in middle school and ghost stories you will surely enjoy reading this book. This book was written for the middle class or junior high level children, ages 10-14, and many children would be able to relate to this book on many levels.
From the back of the book, Kaylee Cooper is certain that Alex will become friends with a ghost this year. Alex thinks that he is far too old to be listening to a first grader and encourages Kaylee to stop jeopardizing his important sixth grade social life. Kaylee doesn’t listen and finds awkward ways to spend as much time with Alex as possible, even if it means following him into the boy’s washroom.
This book covers many of the issues children are dealing with in Junior High and this story can help give these children solutions to dealing with these issues.
