    "Feeling at home"

    I loved this book. It helps preteens and teens learn about self acceptance. I teach 5th grade and happy to add this to my classroom library.

    Story
    "Charming and touching"
    Would you listen to Pictures of Hollis Woods again? Why?

    I would listen again. I read this as a kid and find it comforting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pictures of Hollis Woods?

    The first time Hollis sees Josie's home.


    What does Hope Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hope Davis manages to deliver performances of both a teen girl and an elderly woman convincingly. She understands the whimsy and wonder that Hollis sees as a young girl as well as the aloofness and pain that orphandom has brought her.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You don't have to be perfect to belong perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was important for me as a young girl who felt lost. I highly recommend it for young girls and boys around the fourth-grade level on.

    "Good listen"

    It started off slow, but the story line is good. The ending is when you figure out the title of the book.
