I recently received Rodkey’s new book, We’re Not From Here…
Louisiana’s Way Home by Kate DiCamillo
Thank you NetGalley for giving me an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
I chose to request this book because I have read a couple of Kate DiCamillo’s books (Raymie Nightingale and Edward Tulane) before and my sixth grade students enjoy them as well. I did not know that this Louisiana was the same from the book Raymie Nightingale. I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that! I loved Louisiana, way more than Raymie, and was hooked at the start. My heart broke many times and I am still wanting more after it was over. I would definitely recommend this book and I like that you do not have to have read Raymie Nightingale first. You can read either one in any order and still enjoy it. I will recommend this book to my sixth graders and look forward to getting my own copy for my classroom.
