One thought on “Being Henry David, by Cal Armistead

  1. This book was a pretty nice read. The plot seemed pretty predictable to me, but I like the way how the author played it out. I thought it was really creative how the author intertwined a book into the story. One thing I found kind of weird was the exaggeration. For example, they exaggerated that something tragically terrifying happened to the sister, like I thought she died because of the exaggeration, but instead she hurt her leg, which is still bad, but not to the same extent. I liked the descriptive setting, but this book in not Newbery.
