Opinion

From Library Staff

Aven Green is not happy that she has to move from her home in Kansas to an abandoned theme park in Arizona. What makes life even harder is that Aven was born without arms and she is not looking forward to the challenges of starting a new life and a new school.

Aven Green lives her life without arms more authentically than many kids with all of their limbs. Her story is inspiring and informative as she befriends a boy with Tourette's and another with a weight problem. They run into each other while avoiding eating lunch in the cafeteria. Together they team up to try and solve the mystery of the missing owner of Stagecoach Pass. When Aven's spirits dip into a valley, her father inspires her with Matthew 5:15 and encourages her to let her light shine. Shine on, Aven. Looking forward to the sequel!

I had to read this based on the title alone, and it's a great book. Aven was born without arms and has moved to a western theme park with her adopted parents. So she has to make friends at her new school, where the kids don't quite understand how to deal with someone who is differently abled. A great cast of characters and a mystery add to this book's charm. I recommend this for ages 9-12
