    Excellent Insight To British CultureThis young adult book had examples of what the Brits say or won t say,or what they do or wouldn t do in several situations than any other book that I have ever read.It really made me feel that I was there with the character.My Air Force father was stationed in England when I was a kid,and I remember a lot about their beautiful Country,and am an avid Anglophile.Much better than any travelogue of England to give you a real feeling for the culture.The info on the schools was really interesting,as well.Really engaging story of an American family s 18 month stay in England.I read my library s copy.Highly recommended for all ages and especially other Anglophiles.

    I requested this one as part of my young adult lit class final project on boarding schools It didn t get to me for a month after I finished the semester through the magic of inter library loan, but I m glad because I would have wasted time on this one First of all, it s a children s book, and there s no maturity in it that may have YA crossover appeal It s extremely juvenile and twee Not that it s that bad on its own, since this is a kids book, just saying this would have been super frustrating for me in the middle of my end of semester hair pulling stress fun time This one is a nonfiction about the author who attended an English boarding school for a year away from her US home for a year and a half The stories were interesting, but there s almost no thought put into how it feels to move around so much and the difficulty that comes with making and keeping friends I ve done this when I was about her age, and I didn t identify with the author almost at all, other than some very superficial aspects of new school uniforms are cool Some girls aren t nice to Americans just because kids suck There were maybe 1 2 off hand sentences that hit on it, but nothing that would help kids in the same situation find solace It s a cute book with a lot of charm I usually know how to enjoy kids books, but this one was a little too young and lacked good transitions between sentences, paragraphs, and chapters for me to lose myself in it I don t hate it, but I don t particularly like it either I can tell the author is a very nice, very well meaning person, but it wasn t for me.

    Sweet but very very quiet This is described as being based on a true story , but in effect I m not sure how much was really fictionalised here It might be accurate to call this tidied up memoir.Heroine Libby as opposed to author Libby is excited to move to England for six months as a childuntil she gets there England in the 1950s is even rule based and class based and fitting in based than a contemporary England, and she s not happy Worse, as the end of the six months approaches, her parents deliver bad news they re staying in England for another year But there s a silver lining, because her parents are willing to send her to boarding school, where she might be happier than she has been at the local school.So off Libby goes to school, where very little happens In that sense it s a nice portrait of a specific time and place She makes friends and learns a bit of French and has to follow rules and occasionally gets in a very small amount of trouble, andthen the year ends, and she goes home I think I d have enjoyed this quite a bit when I was the age Libby is in this book I was already reading everything about boarding school that I could get my hands on , but from of a distance and thinking about my own, very different boarding school experience it has less appeal.

    I very much enjoyed this nostalgic novel of the 1950s Young Libby has an engaging voice and at times, a Ramona type personality I m sure many readers will wish they could be best friends with her during her fascinating year at an English boarding school I know I did, and by the end of the book, when a school group picture was mentioned, I was so hoping there would be a copy on the next page Therefore, I was VERY excited to find the picture on Libby s entertaining ifyoulovetoread dot com website where I can zoom in and get to know ALL of her classmates and teachers, as well as discover lots of other fun facts Blow Out the Moon is a great choice for readers of all ages.

    The story of the author s childhood move to England and subsequent year at a girls boarding school The beginning moved kind of slowly for me, but I really enjoyed the descriptions of the boarding school Photographs and childhood letters are scattered throughout the book I liked that Reading this makes me want to read school stories

    Utterly magical It s basically a historic personal scrapbook with a story running through the middle and if you don t have the pretty cover with all the little photo squares, you are missing out Ideal for a juvenile audience, but easily appreciated by adults with all its nostalgic charm.

    Read this book multiple times in the third grade and I remember writing in my diary that it was my all time favorite novel Definitely a simple and modest read, but it made me happy and put me at ease It was easy to put myself in Libby s POV and pretend I was in Britain rather than Gwinnett County Public Schools I definitely need to buy a copy to keep in my future home.

    More a memoir than fiction, this is the story of stalwart American Libby s year in a British boarding school at the age of 8 in 1959 Studded with photos of her essays and other memorabilia I was most struck with how independent children were then, and separate from grown ups Libby learned to ride horses and French and manners and had a thoroughly good time.

    This had been a very inspiring read Libby is a talented writer and I m grateful for the opportunity to learn something new with her memoir Yes, this is the story of Libby, from her childhood in New York to London, from her undesirable experiences in her new school, to coping up and moving to a better and nicer boarding school Sibton Park was than a school to her, it was like her second home, with all those wonderful friends she d made and the chance to show her skill in writing and yep, riding a horse I got a paperback of this book in our local bookstore I instantly liked the cover because it featured a young girl standing in front of a gated fence looking at a school building, maybe contemplating if she s gonna give it a go or just run away The image is powerful and drew me in.What I also loved about this book are the real pictures that Libby had kept from those years living in London, those letters she wrote, the tea set, the dolls, the paddocks, even her French tests and pair of Wellingtons The book, all in all, is a beauty And if there s one thing that made me really love her and the story, it was the inclusion of the map of Kensington Gardens remember Peter Pan and Hansel and Gretel Yes, those were favorites of mine and it s nice to read a novelized memoir about a girl after my own heart.
