Here in the Real World by Sara Pennypacker tour! Review and Giveaway



ABOUT THE BOOK



Written by Sara Pennypacker
Publisher’s Synopsis: From the author of the highly acclaimed, New York Times bestselling novel Pax comes a gorgeous and moving middle grade novel that is an ode to introverts, dreamers, and misfits everywhere.
Ware can’t wait to spend summer “off in his own world”—dreaming of knights in the Middle Ages and generally being left alone. But then his parents sign him up for dreaded Rec camp, where he must endure Meaningful Social Interaction and whatever activities so-called “normal” kids do.
On his first day Ware meets Jolene, a tough, secretive girl planting a garden in the rubble of an abandoned church next to the camp. Soon he starts skipping Rec, creating a castle-like space of his own in the church lot.
Jolene scoffs, calling him a dreamer—he doesn’t live in the “real world” like she does. As different as Ware and Jolene are, though, they have one thing in common: for them, the lot is a refuge.
But when their sanctuary is threatened, Ware looks to the knights’ Code of Chivalry: Thou shalt do battle against unfairness wherever faced with it. Thou shalt be always the champion of the Right and Good—and vows to save the lot.
But what does a hero look like in real life? And what can two misfit kids do?
Ages 8-12 | Publisher: Balzer + Bray | February 4, 2020 | ISBN-13: 978-0062698957

REVIEW
Cute and endearing read. If you were, or know a child who felt on the outside but thrives with imagination ;Ware encompasses all those attributes into himself. Book is written very well for the young reader. Descriptive, imaginative, and very close to real personal experiences captured within the pages.
The wonderment of Ware , a child who in himself through his adversaries, thrives on his deep set imagination to carry him through his days. Forced to be a normal child of sorts for his parents through a trying time, Ware seeks refuge in an old abandoned church lot where he meets Jolene. What will or would you do , if the place you found solace in was threatened! Two young adversaries come together. Who wants to always be Here in The real World anyway. I highly recommend the read.
