    One thought on “Ruby Starr”

    1. If there’s one thing Ruby Starr knows, it’s books. She loves to read and has her own book club with her best friends at school. She also knows that when a new character appears on the scene it often means trouble. So when new-student Charlotte arrives, Ruby is pretty sure she’s trouble; she just wonders whether she’s trouble with a capital “T” or a little “t.”In The Fictional and (Sometimes) Fabulous World of Ruby Starr author Deborah Lytton has created a lovable character with a [...]

    2. Ruby Starr is a vivacious ten year old that has a vivid imagination. The thing she loves the most is books. Her imagination often runs wild pretending that she is a character in a book. At first Ruby is excited when a new girl joins their class. She even goes out of her way to make the new girl feel welcome. But then Ruby starts to feel like she is being slowly pushed aside by her group, and suddenly Ruby has mixed emotions about the new girl and her longtime group of friends. Kids will love rea [...]

    3. ** I received a free copy of this book through a giveaway. **I LOVED this book! It's for younger readers but this is definitely a book I would have fallen into and connected with the main character when I was younger. (Actually, I still did!) The love of books the main character has comes through perfectly and the ups and downs of middle school life are extremely well portrayed. The ending was a bit too neat but since the book is for younger readers, this didn't bother me as much as it could ha [...]

    4. Ruby Starr has three best friends—until a new kid comes to her school and disrupts everything. Before Ruby realizes what is happening, the new kid, Charlotte has become a member of the Unicorns and has ruined Ruby’s weekly book club!As Ruby tries to work through the changes in the Unicorns, she relies on the friends she has made in, and lessons she has learned from, books over the years. Ruby has an active imagination, and sees herself in many different magical scenes to get through the prob [...]

    5. Ruby loves books and even has her own book club. I find her imagination very admirable, on par with Anne from Anne of Green Gables. This was a fun read.Quote: Confession time: I hate it when people remind me that characters in books aren’t real. They are real to the authors who write them. And they are real to the readers (like me) who love them. So telling me that they aren’t really real just makes me want to growl.

    6. For Ruby, reading fuels the imagination. Reading junkies will agree—books make us laugh, take us to magical lands, give us superpowers. Through Ruby Starr’s pitch-perfect youthful voice, Deborah Lytton reminds us that no matter what our age, being able to read is a gift. So is Lytton’s book. I feel privileged to have met and spent time with Ruby Starr, and you will, too.

    7. My daughter is a rising 2nd grader and loved this book! It is so funny and made her laugh out loud on many occasions. She's excited to read more from this series and author! I liked the message behind the story about friendships and navigating the social world of grade school. Really great read! Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Jabberwocky for the ARC!

    8. An excellent lower mid grade book about negotiating friendship highs and lows. I loved Ruby and her outlook on life, her love of books and her utter determination to live her best life.A great read for girls :)

    9. I received a copy of this book from Sourcebooks Jabberwocky via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
