One thought on “Dear Hank Williams, by Kimberly Willis Holt

  1. “Dear Hank Williams” is a collection of letters written by a character named Tate. She talks about all of the things going on in her current life, and the way the author wrote it makes it sound like a normal story, except in letter form. I think the author did a very good job creating the characters, setting, and plot. The flow of the story was decent, although there were occasional times where the chapters would shift topics so suddenly it was hard to understand. I personally do not think this book is a Newbery, but it was a very fun read, and I recommend it for girls in fifth or sixth grade, or ages 10-12.
