5 between liked to really liked.
I liked this story I could not get a complete gauge on the ages of all of the residents, especially Sal The way she understood numbers was difficult for me to understand Was she really telling me the math problem to solve her age This book reminded me a lot of a girl I was friends with back in my hometown I felt like the church forced me to be friends with her, because it s what the elders wanted I did it with no complaints, because she was really nice, sweet and completely innocent She liked boys I was always afraid they would try to take advantage of her because of her innocence and scary movies We would spend weekends camped out on her couch watching scary movie after scary movie There was one boy who was a year older than me 2 years older than her that started dating her I oftentimes t This book made me very uncomfortable The plot was ok but the way it was told was unsettling for me, and not in a good way.
Sunnyside Plaza by Scott Simon is a short novel named for an adult group home, and narrated by one of the residents, Sally Miyake Sal can t read, or tie her shoes, but she notices things When two deaths and a serious injury occur in the home, Sal gets to know the detectives that investigate the cases The book is partly a mystery, but mainly about Sal s acceptance of who she is, despite the attitudes of outside people I really liked Sal s story It s unusual for a book for a middle grade audience to be written from an adult perspective, even one with a childlike heart The mystery is not as diabolical or heavy as I expected, but also feels a bit tame even for younger readers The relationships are where this story really shines You can feel the affection Sal has for her friends, both old and new, and the love they Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I wasn t really sure why this was geared towards children.
I read 2 3 of this book, but was having some major issues with the tokenism of people with disabilities that didn t improve I also really don t know who this book is for It is being marketed to youth, but I don t necessary think that it was written and edited with a youth audience in mind.
At first I thought this was The Curious Incident of the Strokes in the Group Home, but it turns out it s A Neurotypical Author Teaches Us a Very Important Lesson about People with Intellectual Disabilities.
