    3.5 stars. I genuinely like middle-grade novels; the genre has a more simplistic writing style, which can actually be nice, and doesn't usually lean on romance, which can only be a good thing. But middle grade realistic books often suffer from the same issue; they're unmemorable. Too simplistic and ...

    Emma Donoghue wrote a kid's book! With a HUGE premise. The Lotterys is this mish-mash of a family consisting of 4 parents (a man from the Yukon paired with a man from India and a Cherokee woman paired with a woman from the Caribbean), 7 kids from various corners of the world and several pets. But th...

    I listened to the audio version and loved it! For me, this isn't just a book about blending families or tolerance toward different groups and it really struck me as something quite special. Ok, so, two male partners and two female partners who are such great friends they decide to live together and ...

    I've been ruminating on this one for a couple days, and I gotta tell ya, it's just way too much of a gimmick. Literally every single alternative lifestyle you can think of is here. Two multicultural couples. Who are of course, best friends, so the kids have four parents instead of two. They don't dr...

    The Lotterys Plus One - Emma Donoghue, Caroline Hadilaksono   A failure, sadly, not epic. Here's the set up: an enormous, unconventional family living in Toronto epitomizes all the lefty, hippy, green, etc. positions you can imagine, just exactly as if someone had said, hmm, "what's the super ...

    was sent an early copy of this book in return for my independent honest review. I rated this book 1.5* So sorry to rate one of my favourite authors so low. This is Emma Donahue's transition from adult fiction to middle grade. Unfortunately this just didn't work for me. As I love this authors adult b...
