From the Desk of Zoe Washington: Book Recommendation #iLoveMG

Welcome to #iLoveMG where I share middle grade books that my fifth graders recommend. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

From the Desk of Zoe Washington

Recommended by Sadie

I read From the Desk of Zoe Washington by Janae Marks. This is a realistic fiction book, so it is not a real event but it could happen. 

This book is about a girl named Zoe who has a love for baking. But she has never met her father because he’s in jail because of murder. He claimed he was innocent, but the judge didn’t listen. On her birthday, she got a letter from her father which had not happened before. Zoe had also gotten into a fight with her neighbor who she usually spends the summer with, which makes her pretty bored, but then she is allowed to work at her mom’s friend’s bakery for the summer. Zoe writes back to her dad and starts trying to figure out how to get him out of jail. 

I liked this book because the characters are adventurous and daring. There were many times where I couldn’t stop reading. Zoe was very determined to get her father out of jail and did many things that maybe did or could’ve gone wrong. If you like fiction or realistic fiction, you might like this book. Also, I finished it in 3 days, so if you like a longer read, this isn’t quite for you. 

My overall rating for this book is ⅘ stars. Janae Marks did a good job writing this book, and I hope someday there is a sequel. 
I'm sorry this is so long!
