Book Review: Alone #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.

[Alone review, written as a song - invent your own melody and rock out] 

She was a girl in Colorado doing alright 
Then she got abandoned overnight 
Now she’s gotta figure out how to survive 
So many tragedies 

Back in the house with her neighbor’s doggy 
Trying to find food that is tasty 
A whole life of canned food is waiting for her! 
She’s not excited to say (Maddie is alone!) 
She’s finding out how to drive at age twelve (Maddie is alone!) Making her way, with fire and intruders every day (Maddie) 
It’s gonna be her time (Maddie) 
To show them all that she’ll 

Live all alone! 

[Or, if you prefer your reviews in prose ...] 

My book is Alone by Megan E. Freeman. This book is written in verse and fits the genre of dystopia quite well. 

Maddie arranged a sleepover at her grandparents summer apartment without her parents knowing. After her friends cancel on her, she spends the night alone. Once she wakes up, it is her surprise to find out that the whole town got evacuated overnight because of a threat. Now she is all alone and working to find out how to survive alone just her and her neighbor’s adorable dog, George. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes dogs and a bit of danger. The descriptions of George the dog are absolutely adorable and just to die for. My overall rating would be 8.4/10. 

This is honestly one of the best books that I’ve read.
