Tell Me by Joan Bauer
My name is Elizabeth. I love reading, and my favorite book is My Sister’s Keeper. I am in the 8th grade and enjoy dance.
Tell Me is written by Joan Bauer. It tells the story of 12-year-old Anna who goes to visit her grandmother in Rosemont to get away from her parent’s divorce. Rosemont is famous for its flower festival, so Anna tries to use that as an escape. Anna then observes something off about a little girl that she saw. She has always been told if you see something, say something. She then tries to investigate what is going on and tries to help this little girl. Not only does she help this little girl, but she also makes a few friends along the way. How will her summer turn out? Will she uncover this mystery?
This book is amazing. I first read it when I was about 11, and it has stuck with me since then. I love being able to uncover the story of this little girl, and also learning a little about helping others if you suspect they are in danger. In this story, Anna wears a yellow scrunchie to spread awareness about this little girl’s story, and still, whenever I see a yellow scrunchie, I think of this book. I would give this book a 9.75/10. It was awesome and I really enjoyed reading it. My only dislike is that it’s really simple in language and readability, but I don’t mind that too much.
