Hope Girl (River, Book 2)
By: Wendy Dunham

Guest Review Rating: Four out of Five Stars
Best For: 12 and up

Tough subjects done well
A Guest Book Review by Julie Hilton

River is a girl with a mysterious parent situation, a friend who dies in suspicious circumstance, an ill grandmother, and feelings of an almost teenager (12). Mix it all up and you have a recipe for deep messages about faith and forgiveness, patience and perseverance.

I loved how it treated some very difficult subjects. As an adult I would’ve enjoyed greater, more in-depth character development. For it’s middle-grade target audience, it’s perfect.

The content in these books would be rated PG. Death, bullying, violence, kidnapping, divorce, amnesia, trauma, PTSD, and heart attack are some of the topics that are touched on. All the topics are presented in an age-appropriate manner.

I will recommend to my 11 and 14 year old children.
