#OBBigBang Book Review - Millicent Marie Is Not My Name by Karen Pokras Toz

Millicent Marie Is Not My NameMillicent Marie Is Not My Name by Karen Pokras Toz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We all seek to fit in - be it at school, work, among our friends. We do our best to prune ourselves and sometimes this backfires. This is no different for Millicent Marie. She tries to fit by venting anonymously and all is well until she realizes that she isn't as alone as she thought she would be. Although, her heart seems to be in the right place, her blog too is a kind of bullying and I think this is where Karen does a splendid job.

Seeing that this is a book for children, she defines bullying and all the different shapes it can take. Bullying is no longer about punching a kid for lunch money, there's more to it now. I think this is an important read for all school going children and parents. I know I'm saving this for when my three little ones are old enough.

Thank you Karen, for seeing the world from a child's point of view and a mother's.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4.5 /5
Editing: 4.5 /5
Formatting: 4.5/5
Pacing: 4.5 /5
Offensive content?: G
