    A good read for kids who think they have it rough Tells of a family struggling with unemployment and forced to leave their home in search of employment A down to Earth read for the brats among us


    I remember reading this book in my living room when I was around ten Funny how books can conjure up memories Even if they aren t particularly exciting memories, nostalgia can have a mighty effect on how you feel about stories Reading it as an adult I found new things to appreciate about it besides the nostalgia factor There are two main points, IMO, that it has going for it 1 It paints a realistic portrait of homelessness and all the emotions that are involved despondency, anger, reticence, and [...]


    Excellent book for middle school tweens Especially given this rough economic time.I think there are a lot of kids who can relate to Zoe s story.The summer before Zoe starts 6th grade she finds out that her family has to leave the house she grew up in Zoe s parents have been looking for work for sometime with no luck The rental home they have been living in has been sold and they don t have money for another Zoe, her younger brother and her parents end up living out of a van while the travel the [...]

    J L's Bibliomania

    Nicely done realistic fiction issue novel The Double Life of Zoe Flynn touches on the problems and feelings of homelessness in a manner appropriate for the targeted audience of middle grade readers Perhaps because it is set in a small town, the book succeeds in focusing on the uncertainty of being homeless without having to simultaneously address the horrors of drugs, gangs and violence that typically would be present in an urban setting Zoe s Dad is not a bad person, he s just down on his luck, [...]

    Two disclaimers First, I know the the author Secondly, this book touches a subject near and dear to my heart Zoe s family, like so other American families, must leave their home and travel to find new jobs and a place to live The writing is beautiful and the plot unpredictable and intriguing I found myself worrying during the day about what was going to happen to Zoe How could she ever make friends and still keep her secret


    This book will come dangerously close to quietly breaking your heart But in a good way After Zoe s dad loses his job, the family moves north to Oregon but ends up living in their van until mom and dad can save up enough money for first and last month s rent She misses her old house like crazy and is too embarrassed to tell her new friend the real reason she can t invite her over Great writing Really liked it.


    Zoe s father loses his job and they are really struggling They lose their house and have to live in a van in a new town Zoe trys to hide it but because of that she is having a hard time fitting in and making friends.


    An amusing little book about a 14 year old girl who has just moved in a new town Ahe struggles to fit in, and ends up learnning an awful lot about herself, friendships, and her family, or simply families in general, along the way.
