7th grade teacher shocked at ending

Posted on August 3, 2011


The unexpected ending of Letters to Juniper has been described by reviewers as “shocking”, “mind-numbing”, “brilliant”, and “similar to the surprise kick in the movie Sixth Sense”.

Will you be shocked?

In the latest review, Jill of The O.W.L., 7th grade teacher and book blogger, said this:

“The style of writing was really easy to read.  I moved through the book very quickly.  Because it’s in the voice of a 12 year old girl it keeps some of what could be deep (like her father’s beliefs) from becoming too much.  Sarah’s voice is well done and easy to “listen” to … The ending – I was shocked at how it all ended.  Lots I didn’t expect.  It isn’t the easiest ending … ”

A new review by Danai Kadzere, author of Elsbett & Robin Take On A-Nasty-Sia:

“The story is told in a chillingly true style and really draws readers in – not only was I reading through mealtimes, but also on my walk to and from work! The ending, at least for me, came out of nowhere! I thoroughly enjoyed Letters to Juniper and think it’s good enough to pull the little (er, middle?) ones away from their gameboys … definitely has young adult cross-over potential.”
