The Secret Tree

Neighborhood Kids
Review
This was a really good book; I've read it three times. This book really shows how friendships can be, and how people sometimes just need to work as a team to reach success. When a best friend shuns you away, you have to stick up for yourself. But you also have to be aware that maybe they've changed, and they're just going to be like that forever. That's when you need to take a step back, and tell yourself that it shouldn't matter that much to you. When Minty Mortimer gets pushed away by her friend, she tries to make new ones, but also sticks up for herself. She tries to help, but her friend runs away from her and ignores her, even laughing at her, which made her feel pretty bad, which doesn't surprise me. This is a must-read kind of book.

Review
I love the story of Robin Hood, and this book gave a fascinatingly insightful possibility for Robin Hood's background. I really like that it showed how he became Robin Hood and gave in-depth explanations and descriptions for everything. Robin McKinley may not be the most well-known and famous author in the world, but some of her books are positively enthralling.
