Oh So Much More with Meg Mitchell Moore

Thank you to Book Sparks PR, Reagan Arthur Books, and Meg Mitchell Moore for the opportunity to review this book.

Natalie is assigned a project by her teacher Mrs. Ramirez to do an independent project.  Her teacher has left it a mystery as to what the students should do for this project.   School has not been easy for her because of her former best friend Hannah cyber bullying.  Natalie makes a discovery of a notebook which leads her to Kathleen Lynch a widower who works at the Archives in Boston, and is a widower. They work together on Natalie’s special project.  Will their relationship grow?  Will Natalie be able to solve her bullying problem?
My Thoughts:
Meg Mitchell Moore writes with much passion and emotion.  I could definitely identify with her characters.   She kept my interest throughout the book.   I found her writing with relevant topics such as bullying, a child dealing with divorce, and feelings of loss.  She vividly describes the feelings of the character and their surroundings.   My only criticism is that the story was slow in places.  I very much enjoyed this book.  I look forward to reading more from this author.
Bullying was a main theme within this book.  Who hasn’t experienced bullying while growing up?  Cyber bullying is much more serious than just standing up to the bully.  I have thought about what my reaction would be as a parent and how I handled it as a child.   I feel that parents should be involved especially with the major damage to a child’s reputation.  What do you think?


Please stop by and let Meg know your thoughts on her book.  You can reach her by facebook, twitter, and website.
