Julia found this and after flipping through it I figured I'd try it with her. She only lasted a few pages. It's not a children's book in the same way as a picture book of course but Julia often reads books that are are older kids. After I gave up reading this with Julia I figured I may as well read it myself. I did finish but I wasn't captivated by it.
It was a little too repetitive for me and I just really didn't feel connected to the main character at all.
I thought I had read another YA-y book by Rylant because I recognized her name but after looking through her books I see we've only read All in a Day.
Boris is a real quick book - it can be read in a matter of minutes - but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
