Award-winning Canadian author Kit Pearson has a new book! It'a called A Day of Signs and Wonders. Eleven year-old Sophia got a chance to read it before it hits the shelves next week, so she's here to tell us about it.
What's the book about?
The Day of Signs and Wonders is about two girls—Kitty, who is still dealing with her sister’s death and is not looking forward to moving to a boarding school and Emily, whose mother is sick—who meet each other at a beach in Victoria, B.C in 1881. The girls, after hanging out at Kitty’s house, go to visit the town’s fortune teller to try and summon Kitty’s dead sister and learn more about their futures.
What I like about the book is the part where Kitty and Emily remain friends at the end of the day even though they had an argument. What I do not like is that I don't know what happens after that day. For example, how did Kitty's mother get the money back from the fortune teller? And what happened to Emily when she came back from her stay at their friend's house?
Sophia recommends this book!
I think other kids like me should read this book because it teaches you about friendship and how two strangers get together and eventually find some things in common and end up becoming good friends. I’d recommend this book for ages 9+. I’d rate the book 7.5 out of 10.
