Book Review: Every Shiny Thing

Every Shiny Thing

by Cordelia Jensen, Laurie Morrison

Amulet Books

Children’s Fiction

Pub Date 17 Apr 2018

I am reviewing a copy of Every Shiny Thing through Amulet Books and Netgalley:

Lauren prides herself on being a good sister, to her brother who is on the spectrum, when Lauren’s parents place her brother in a boarding school for teens on the spectrum.

Sierra moves into Lauren’s neighborhood after her Mother is arrested and she is placed into a foster home in the same wealthy neighborhood Lauren lives in. The girls are lost and hurting and find comfort in each other but soon Lauren recruits Sierra to help her with a Robin Hood scheme to help raise money for Autistic kids who do not have the resources her family does, but if anything goes wrong both girls can find themselves in deep trouble.

Lauren will have to learn that it is not just good intentions that matter when battling injustice, and Sierra learns that she sometimes needs to take care of herself not just everybody else.

I give Every Shiny Thing five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
