Neugierde war meine erste Reaktion, als ich von Bianca gefragt wurde, ob es mich interessieren könnte, dieses Buch zu lesen. Neugierig, wie ich war, habe ich dann sofort auch nachgeschaut, ob das Buch bereits erhältlich ist und meine Ungeduld wurde mit jedem Tag, den die Post benötigte, etwas größer.

Und als ich das Buch schließlich aufschlug und den ersten Satz gelesen hatte, blieb mir erst einmal die Luft weg, weil ich sofort daran dachte, wie es mir wohl gehen würde, wenn das mir passieren wür

This is one of those magical books that make you laugh and cry simultaneously. From the first line, I knew I should feel sad, but then the main character says something that makes you laugh and you find yourself furtively looking around to make sure no one saw you laughing at a tragic situation. The story is told in first person from Emma’s point of view, so you come to terms with the situation and the death of her sister at the same time as she d

Lexiland.

Lexiland is written in the point of view of a ten year old girl named Emma, who later changes her name to Eddie. Sure the fact that she is ten gives the book a bit of immaturity and innocence but I don't think the story line would have been as good if she was older.
A year before hand, Emma's twin sister died on their birthday. Though her sister -Laura- is never actually alive in the story you find yourself becoming attached to her as Emma tells you memories from the past.

This had me with so much of feeling. Emma lost her twin sister Laura on their birthday. The whole story was beautifully written on Emma's POV. A 10 year old girl. A bittersweet story of grief.

I had mix feeling. I don't know what I would do if I ever lost my sister.

Kurzbeschreibung:
Ein wunderbares Buch, das zu Tränen rührt
»Meine Schwester starb am 1. März, und das war richtig blöd. Immerhin war das mein Geburtstag. Es war unser Geburtstag. Laura war meine Zwillingsschwester.«
So beginnt Emma ihre Geschichte – eine Geschichte, die mitten ins Herz trifft. Ohne ihre vorlaute, starke Schwester fühlt sich Emma verloren und unsichtbar. In der Schule ebenso wie in ihrer Familie. Nachts, wenn sie die Augen schließt, hört sie Lauras Stimme, die ihr Mut zuspricht. Do

Ich bin im Vorfeld nicht besonders häufig über "Mein Herz schlägt für uns beide" gestolpert und hatte von daher keinerlei Erwartungen an dieses Buch. Die Kurzbeschreibung klang zwar sehr interessant und vielversprechend, aber dennoch habe ich kein riesengroßes Highlight erwartet. Zum Glück, denn leider war dieses Buch für mich nur sehr durchschnittlich, was wohl auch daran lag, dass ich am Ende vielleicht doch etwas zu alt für das Buch bin, schließlich richtet sich das Buch in erster Linie an Ki ...more

Dieses Buch habe ich über Facebook mit einer lieben Userin getauscht und mir vorgenommen, nachdem ich "Hand in Hand in Virgin River" beendet hatte. Ich fand den Klappentext unheimlich ansprechend, aber hat er auch gehalten, was er versprochen hat?

Lest selbst .

Emma verliert ihre Zwillingsschwester Laura ausgerechnet am 1.März - an dem Tag, an dem die beiden Mädchen ihren Geburtstag feiern. Für Emma ist von da an nichts mehr, wie es war. Laura war bislang immer an ihrer Seite und seit ihrem Tod f

Ik beken het eerlijk: ik hou van verdrietige verhalen. Dit boek past in deze categorie.
Emma mist haar tweelingzusje Laura, die op hun verjaardag is overleden. Laura was de sociale, spontane van hun tweeën. Emma heeft een fotografisch geheugen en ze is goed in rare verhalen verzinnen. Maar daar maak je weinig vrienden mee, ontdekt ze al snel. Als er een nieuw meisje in de klas komt, Lexi, wil Emma graag vriendinnen met haar worden. Maar Lexi wordt al snel ingepalmd door het vervelendste meisje va

Tiger Moth is narrated by Alice and Zack, both have distinct voices. We first meet Alice who tells us about how her parents picked her shortly after she was born and about Culver Manor (I loved the description of the house, could picture it perfectly).

I liked Alice and thought that Suzi Moore succeeded in making the reader feel very sympathetic towards her. It took me a little longer to warm to Zack, I think a lot of that has to do with his relationship with his mother.

Dit boek werd mij aangeraden door een meisje van elf jaar. Zij was onder de indruk van dit prachtige verhaal. Toen zij mij vertelde waar het verhaal over ging dacht ik: jakkie wat zielig, dat is toch niet leuk om te lezen. Maar Lexiland is maar een klein beetje zielig, de rest van het verhaal gaat over herkenbare problemen bij meisjes van ca. elf jaar. Dat Emma, later in het verhaal Eddie, haar tweelingzus zo mist is een beschadiging. En ook haar nieuwe vriendin Lexi is beschadigd. Het verhaal e ...more

Thank you to Bloomsbury Australia for this review copy!

Oh my gosh, this is such a gorgeous story and has such fantastically beautiful illustrations. Surely one of my favourite picture books of 2013, it was just incredibly beautiful. On re-reading I loved the story more than the first time, but the illustrations are what stand out to me. They are soft and delicate and convey the story in such a wonderful way. I’ll keep using words like incredible and beautiful and gorgeous, so I’ll just say: it i

Lexiland is an outstanding book. I read a lot of children/YA fiction but this was one that I could really get into as well. It wasn't ridiculous and the writing was so real and truthful. Lexiland is one of those books that I found myself reading in one go, I loved it, put it down and then thought about for two nights. I loved the characters and character development. Lexiland is a must read book of 2013. I love finding wonderful realistic fiction for young people.

I wish they wouldn't put young fiction in the adult section at the library , it gives me the wrong expectations for a book.
Took a while to figure how old the characters were in this, and to be honest, they all seemed to act a lot younger than they were....for the purpose of big reveals I guess.
It was an ok read, but won't be paying it on to younger kids I know.

I liked how everything wasn't all gloomy and in the end things got better. I think it was realistic and the way everyone acted seemed true. I like the characters. This kind of story was right up my alley.

I love this book. I know it by heart. I just have to say "it was late at night, and time for bed" and my little one gets all excited and starts offering up his monstery toes to be tickled. A fabulous book which has created some very precious memories.
