    This review and other non-spoilery reviews can be found @The Book Prescription ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. "For my daughters, may you grow to be as brave as Rome, strong as Lux, and compassionate as Mercy" ? The above...

    My Experience: I started reading The Deepest Roots on 7/31/18 and finished it on 8/10/18. This book has great humor! I love the friendship and diversity. I love the strong female lead. I like the hints of romance. I like Red and Jett, good guys out of a bunch of bad ones. I love the co...

    This is a hard one for me to review. I LOVED the setting and the whimsy, but all of the angst and unnecessary drama really took this down from what could have been a 5 to a 3. I still really enjoyed it, but I can?t ignore the hardcore eye rolls this caused me lol. ...

    TW - abuse, sexual assault, really smarmy and rapey comments by grown men to adult girls. Hard to really explain how much I love this book. The Deepest Roots is set in the town of Cottonwood Hollow, Kansas, where the girls grow up a little bit different. Each Cottonwood girl has ...

    Part of being in a family is letting them into your tiny, narrow trailer that doesn't smell like cookies. It's showing them your deepest, darkest fears and letting them shine a little light on them. Though it took me eighty four years to read THE DEEPEST ROOTS, it wasn?t because I...

    Once I picked up THE DEEPEST ROOTS, I didn't want to put it down. The story built like a train rolling down hill, and the deeper into the Cottonwood Hollow girls' lives I tangled, the more I never wanted to leave. Every page led to another mystery that begged to be solved. And the char...

    ?But this is one thing I will wish with my dying breath upon all the daughters of Cottonwood Hollow who follow mine: May they depend on each other; protect each other no matter what the cost? May they be blessed with the strength to survive here.? This wasn?t really what...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars In a town where every woman had a "talent", Rome was a Fixer. A cracked screen, a loose wire, a rusty hinge - she Fixed them with very little effort, but when her home life began to crumble and her friendships started to crack under the weight of secrets, she found...

    THIS BOOK WAS SOOOO GOOD!!!! Miranda writes beautifully! And I felt so connected to these girls and this town. As a fellow Kansas girl, I may be a bit biased, but Miranda rocked it. From the very first page I was pulled in and captivated by the characters and the setting and the ...

    i am a sucker for magical realism,strong friendships and mysterious little towns in the middle of nowhere so this was more than perfect!? ...

    *Source* Edelweiss *Genre* Young Adult / Magical Realism *Rating* 3.5 *Thoughts* The Deepest Roots is the debut novel by author Miranda Asebedo. Miranda has come up with a fascinating world that is just slightly different from our own. Readers will be intrigued by the wide vari...

    3.5 stars! While I wasn?t initially sure about this book (the initial half had a mix of all these elements that I wasn?t sure would come together), I ended up liking the way it portrayed the ups and downs of life and friendship, with a bonus set of unusual circumstances. ...

    Instead of offering a summary of the book, like many reviews do, I am just going to dive right in to the strengths of this novel. YA can be tricky to envision when you are an adult reading it, and writing it can be even trickier. The voice(s) of teens are ever changing and it is import...

    idk what this is but the cover is the prettiest thing i've seen all year ...

    The Deepest Roots is a magical story about tight friendships. I can relate a lot to this book, not only because I have grown up in a town in Kansas much like Cottonwood Hollow, but also because I feel like my close friendships really helped shape me as a person when I was in high schoo...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Okaaaay. So I took a long time finishing this ARC because it's a bit uneventful. Don't get me wrong, the premise is way good. The idea that there are talents is really appealing for me. Especially being a ...

    *Won ARC from Pop Goes the Reader* Reading this book felt like coming home. Tulsa, OK (where half my family's from) and Cottonwood Hollow, KS are not the same place. But they still have a similar, distinct feeling ? one defined by the dry ground under your feet and the vast sky over...

    Ah goooosh, could we possibly get like a sequel? I want more! (REALLY strong 4 stars, in fact.... 4.5 is more accurate, I think) ?The Deepest Roots? is a debut novel and follows three (I want to say 16 yr olds but I?m not sure if that?s true) young women who all have specia...

    Disclaimer: I received this book for free via KidLitExchange. Thanks! All opinions are my own. Rating: 5/5 Genre: YA Fantasy Recommended Age: 15+ (abuse, sexual assault, slight gore, some violence, the belief that together women can do anything) Pages: 320 Author Website...

    Absolutely phenomenal. A gorgeous debut about sisterhood and the roots that bond them together. Oh, there?s magical realism/paranormal elements too! ...

    TW: Domestic abuse, sexual assault, and disgusting, abusive language from grown men made to young girls and women alike Sometimes a book just makes you realize just how good you got it. The Deepest Rootsis one of those rare stories. The story follow best friends Rome, Lux an...

    Full disclosure: when my preorder of The Deepest Roots arrived, I didn?t even remember ordering it. I had to jump on Goodreads in order to refresh my memory of what it was. I can?t remember ever doing this for a book before, and the fact that I had forgotten I ordered it didn?...

    The Deepest Roots is a magical story about tight friendships. I can relate a lot to this book, not only because I have grown up in a town in Kansas much like Cottonwood Hollow, but also because I feel like my close friendships really helped shape me as a person when I was in high schoo...

    *Won ARC from Pop Goes the Reader* Reading this book felt like coming home. Tulsa, OK (where half my family's from) and Cottonwood Hollow, KS are not the same place. But they still have a similar, distinct feeling ? one defined by the dry ground under your feet and the vast sky over...

    TW - abuse, sexual assault, really smarmy and rapey comments by grown men to adult girls. Hard to really explain how much I love this book. The Deepest Roots is set in the town of Cottonwood Hollow, Kansas, where the girls grow up a little bit different. Each Cottonwood girl has ...

    Part of being in a family is letting them into your tiny, narrow trailer that doesn't smell like cookies. It's showing them your deepest, darkest fears and letting them shine a little light on them. Though it took me eighty four years to read THE DEEPEST ROOTS, it wasn?t because I...

    Once I picked up THE DEEPEST ROOTS, I didn't want to put it down. The story built like a train rolling down hill, and the deeper into the Cottonwood Hollow girls' lives I tangled, the more I never wanted to leave. Every page led to another mystery that begged to be solved. And the char...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars In a town where every woman had a "talent", Rome was a Fixer. A cracked screen, a loose wire, a rusty hinge - she Fixed them with very little effort, but when her home life began to crumble and her friendships started to crack under the weight of secrets, she found...

    *Source* Edelweiss *Genre* Young Adult / Magical Realism *Rating* 3.5 *Thoughts* The Deepest Roots is the debut novel by author Miranda Asebedo. Miranda has come up with a fascinating world that is just slightly different from our own. Readers will be intrigued by the wide vari...

    3.5 stars! While I wasn?t initially sure about this book (the initial half had a mix of all these elements that I wasn?t sure would come together), I ended up liking the way it portrayed the ups and downs of life and friendship, with a bonus set of unusual circumstances. ...

    Instead of offering a summary of the book, like many reviews do, I am just going to dive right in to the strengths of this novel. YA can be tricky to envision when you are an adult reading it, and writing it can be even trickier. The voice(s) of teens are ever changing and it is import...

    The Deepest Roots is a magical story about tight friendships. I can relate a lot to this book, not only because I have grown up in a town in Kansas much like Cottonwood Hollow, but also because I feel like my close friendships really helped shape me as a person when I was in high schoo...

    *Won ARC from Pop Goes the Reader* Reading this book felt like coming home. Tulsa, OK (where half my family's from) and Cottonwood Hollow, KS are not the same place. But they still have a similar, distinct feeling ? one defined by the dry ground under your feet and the vast sky over...
