    I admire the hell out of Susin Nielsen for tackling the topics she does. It isn?t easy to talk about controversial subjects like poverty and homelessness to a middle grade audience. And yet, Susin Nielsen tries? and, in my opinion, does a superb job of discussing them. What I l...

    There are difficult topics and there are ones where socially we like to pretend they don't exist. Susin Nielsen has brought a hard topic, children who are homeless, to the forefront. Set in Vancouver, the homeless capital of Canada due to it's temperate weather, No Fixed Address is a m...

    My thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Random House UK Children?s Publishers for a review copy of this one. This was such a wonderful wonderful read for me?heart-breaking, and cute, and making me smile a little all at the same time. The story is told in the voice of twelve-and-three...

    Very light and fast read but did enjoy it. ...

    Susin Nielsen, you've done it again!! A few years ago I unabashedly gushed over her We Are All Made of Molecules so, readers, be prepared because there's a strong chance of gushing in the forecast for her latest book, No Fixed Address (a book I read in one day). The story focuses on th...

    Another Nielsen book, another winner for me. I am so happy I discovered Susin Nielsen, because every one of her books end up on the "makes-me-happy" list. She has done it once again with No Fixed Address, which was, as intrepid reporter Winnie Wu stated in the book, a feel-good story. ...

    I loved this book. I picked it up on Sunday night and ended up finishing it before I went to bed. I couldn't quit reading about Felix and his life living in a van. While he knows it's "only temporary" (at least, that's what his mom Astrid says, but it has been four months by now), he i...

    After hitting a rough patch financially, 12-year old Felix and his mom, Astrid, find themselves living in a van. Astrid assures Felix that it?s just temporary, but as time goes on Felix finds it increasingly difficult to deal with their situation. Felix is quirky, intelligent, and in...

    'No Fixed Address' is a hard-hitting novel about how Felix and his mom braved all odds to come up in life whilst on the brink of homelessness. ? Felix Knuttson is a 12-year-old kid with dexterity for trivia. Raised by a single mom, he had to witness and go through stuff which none...

    You never really know how much your address means to you until you don't have one... Meet Felix. He's a 12 year old who loves trivia, French, and most of all his mom ( who insits he call her Astrid). Unfortunately they're currently homeless. He does everything he can to keep his hea...

    There were aspects of this book that I liked, and there were aspects of it that I didn't. I liked watching how Felix dealt with his situation emotionally, how he loved his mother but got angry with her, how he operated in and normalized a situation that was very abnormal to those aroun...

    Another fab middle grade story from Susin Nielsen. A thoughtful examination of homelessness and family dynamics, with plenty of great characters, one-liners, and hope. ...

    Sooo many good things about this story! It's semi-realistic in that it displays how easy it is to lose it all and how hard it is to get started again when you are dealing with mental health issues, hide it, and refuse to get any help. I'm sure that many can relate to this problem, and ...

    Meet Felix Knutsson, the charming, earnest protagonist at the helm of No Fixed Address. As one might infer from the title, this book is about life in a Westfalia van. In other words, it is a story about homelessness. But, even more than that, Susin Nielsen's novel is about friendship, ...

    This is the first book by Susin Nielsen I have read and it will not be the last! This book tackles the topic of homelessness, a parent barely able to take care of herself, and her son who holds it together during really tough times. Felix is a great character...vulnerable, intelligent,...

    *Big thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the review copy.* If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. As always Susin writes wonderfully flawed characters in an honest and non judgmental way while tackling serious issues. Her ability to balance the heartbreaking with...

    This is a story about a 12-year-old boy and his mom. They're a regular, small family except that they live in a van on the streets of Vancouver. It?s an adorable book about homelessness, friendship and the bond between a mother and her son. It was a wonderful read. Once I started rea...

    I won this ARC in a Goodreads giveaway. Really good read that provided some food for thought. How many people do we pass everyday, in stores or on buses, that are truly homeless but that find ways to cover it up? I think I will look at people a bit differently for a while after reading...

    Felix has finally arrived at the school of his dreams. With a great French immersion program, his mother?s lies and their home on wheels, Felix can now take advantage of this opportunity. Reconnecting with Dylan, a previous great friend who now attends the school, the two boys are qu...

    I've really enjoyed every book written by this author. She has a sure-handed way with words and knows how to tell a story well while keeping readers' interest. The fact that she often tackles topics not frequently explored in books for young readers adds to her appeal for me. In this b...

    I had planned to start reading this book yesterday since I had just finished a very long book the night before and thought I should take a little bit of time off before starting a new one. Well, that didn't happen. Two hours after I finished that book and had gone to bed, I was still w...

    I became interested in this book because of a shout put by Arthur Slade. He spoke so highly about it, I knew I had to give it a read. Being completely honest I had not encountered any of Susin Neilsen's works before giving this one a read, even in my years as a bookseller. As an introd...

    "But now I'm learning to have faith in something new. Something my mom stopped having faith in a long time ago. Other people." I cannot tell you HOW MUCH I loved this book. It was simple, informative, and intensely entertaining. Felix and his mother's plight was heart wrenching as b...

    By pure happenstance of library availability, I read Just Under the Clouds and No Fixed Address back-to-back. Although both books cover the topic of homelessness, feature protagonists of similar age, and are considered middle-grade (I'll get back to that point), they are vastly differe...

    I received an ARC of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The book is due to be published on September 11, 2018 and I am going to make sure I have a hard copy in hand as soon after it?s released as possible. I loved this book!!! Well, I cried over this bo...

    Nielson writes about the important subjects of hidden homelessness, depression and poverty in a powerfully authentic and funny way. I adored Felix. His wit, kindness, humour and nerdiness are utterly charming, and the loyalty he has for his mother is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking...

    With inference from my experience with Susin Nielsen?s The Hanging Girl and With Malice, the very first scene of the first chapter in No Fixed Address told me to get ready for another intense criminal pursuit styled novel, except, this time, involving a nomadic pair of mother and you...

    ALL THE STARS for this absolutely amazing book by Canadian author @susinnielsen. Many thanks to the @kidlitexchange network and @randomhousekids for this ARC (#partner); all opinions are my own. ~*~*~*~*~* Felix is almost thirteen, loves a game show called Who, What, Where, When and...

    This is a story about a 12-year-old boy and his mom. They're a regular, small family except that they live in a van on the streets of Vancouver. It?s an adorable book about homelessness, friendship and the bond between a mother and her son. It was a wonderful read. Once I started rea...

    I won this ARC in a Goodreads giveaway. Really good read that provided some food for thought. How many people do we pass everyday, in stores or on buses, that are truly homeless but that find ways to cover it up? I think I will look at people a bit differently for a while after reading...

    I've really enjoyed every book written by this author. She has a sure-handed way with words and knows how to tell a story well while keeping readers' interest. The fact that she often tackles topics not frequently explored in books for young readers adds to her appeal for me. In this b...

    I had planned to start reading this book yesterday since I had just finished a very long book the night before and thought I should take a little bit of time off before starting a new one. Well, that didn't happen. Two hours after I finished that book and had gone to bed, I was still w...

    I became interested in this book because of a shout put by Arthur Slade. He spoke so highly about it, I knew I had to give it a read. Being completely honest I had not encountered any of Susin Neilsen's works before giving this one a read, even in my years as a bookseller. As an introd...

    "But now I'm learning to have faith in something new. Something my mom stopped having faith in a long time ago. Other people." I cannot tell you HOW MUCH I loved this book. It was simple, informative, and intensely entertaining. Felix and his mother's plight was heart wrenching as b...

    By pure happenstance of library availability, I read Just Under the Clouds and No Fixed Address back-to-back. Although both books cover the topic of homelessness, feature protagonists of similar age, and are considered middle-grade (I'll get back to that point), they are vastly differe...

    There were aspects of this book that I liked, and there were aspects of it that I didn't. I liked watching how Felix dealt with his situation emotionally, how he loved his mother but got angry with her, how he operated in and normalized a situation that was very abnormal to those aroun...

    Another fab middle grade story from Susin Nielsen. A thoughtful examination of homelessness and family dynamics, with plenty of great characters, one-liners, and hope. ...

    Sooo many good things about this story! It's semi-realistic in that it displays how easy it is to lose it all and how hard it is to get started again when you are dealing with mental health issues, hide it, and refuse to get any help. I'm sure that many can relate to this problem, and ...

    Meet Felix Knutsson, the charming, earnest protagonist at the helm of No Fixed Address. As one might infer from the title, this book is about life in a Westfalia van. In other words, it is a story about homelessness. But, even more than that, Susin Nielsen's novel is about friendship, ...

    This is the first book by Susin Nielsen I have read and it will not be the last! This book tackles the topic of homelessness, a parent barely able to take care of herself, and her son who holds it together during really tough times. Felix is a great character...vulnerable, intelligent,...

    *Big thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the review copy.* If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. As always Susin writes wonderfully flawed characters in an honest and non judgmental way while tackling serious issues. Her ability to balance the heartbreaking with...

    This is a story about a 12-year-old boy and his mom. They're a regular, small family except that they live in a van on the streets of Vancouver. It?s an adorable book about homelessness, friendship and the bond between a mother and her son. It was a wonderful read. Once I started rea...

    I won this ARC in a Goodreads giveaway. Really good read that provided some food for thought. How many people do we pass everyday, in stores or on buses, that are truly homeless but that find ways to cover it up? I think I will look at people a bit differently for a while after reading...

    Felix has finally arrived at the school of his dreams. With a great French immersion program, his mother?s lies and their home on wheels, Felix can now take advantage of this opportunity. Reconnecting with Dylan, a previous great friend who now attends the school, the two boys are qu...

    I had planned to start reading this book yesterday since I had just finished a very long book the night before and thought I should take a little bit of time off before starting a new one. Well, that didn't happen. Two hours after I finished that book and had gone to bed, I was still w...

    I became interested in this book because of a shout put by Arthur Slade. He spoke so highly about it, I knew I had to give it a read. Being completely honest I had not encountered any of Susin Neilsen's works before giving this one a read, even in my years as a bookseller. As an introd...

    I loved this book. I picked it up on Sunday night and ended up finishing it before I went to bed. I couldn't quit reading about Felix and his life living in a van. While he knows it's "only temporary" (at least, that's what his mom Astrid says, but it has been four months by now), he i...

    After hitting a rough patch financially, 12-year old Felix and his mom, Astrid, find themselves living in a van. Astrid assures Felix that it?s just temporary, but as time goes on Felix finds it increasingly difficult to deal with their situation. Felix is quirky, intelligent, and in...

    'No Fixed Address' is a hard-hitting novel about how Felix and his mom braved all odds to come up in life whilst on the brink of homelessness. ? Felix Knuttson is a 12-year-old kid with dexterity for trivia. Raised by a single mom, he had to witness and go through stuff which none...

    You never really know how much your address means to you until you don't have one... Meet Felix. He's a 12 year old who loves trivia, French, and most of all his mom ( who insits he call her Astrid). Unfortunately they're currently homeless. He does everything he can to keep his hea...

    Another fab middle grade story from Susin Nielsen. A thoughtful examination of homelessness and family dynamics, with plenty of great characters, one-liners, and hope. ...

    Sooo many good things about this story! It's semi-realistic in that it displays how easy it is to lose it all and how hard it is to get started again when you are dealing with mental health issues, hide it, and refuse to get any help. I'm sure that many can relate to this problem, and ...

    Meet Felix Knutsson, the charming, earnest protagonist at the helm of No Fixed Address. As one might infer from the title, this book is about life in a Westfalia van. In other words, it is a story about homelessness. But, even more than that, Susin Nielsen's novel is about friendship, ...

    This is the first book by Susin Nielsen I have read and it will not be the last! This book tackles the topic of homelessness, a parent barely able to take care of herself, and her son who holds it together during really tough times. Felix is a great character...vulnerable, intelligent,...

    *Big thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the review copy.* If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. As always Susin writes wonderfully flawed characters in an honest and non judgmental way while tackling serious issues. Her ability to balance the heartbreaking with...

    This is a story about a 12-year-old boy and his mom. They're a regular, small family except that they live in a van on the streets of Vancouver. It?s an adorable book about homelessness, friendship and the bond between a mother and her son. It was a wonderful read. Once I started rea...

    I won this ARC in a Goodreads giveaway. Really good read that provided some food for thought. How many people do we pass everyday, in stores or on buses, that are truly homeless but that find ways to cover it up? I think I will look at people a bit differently for a while after reading...

    Felix has finally arrived at the school of his dreams. With a great French immersion program, his mother?s lies and their home on wheels, Felix can now take advantage of this opportunity. Reconnecting with Dylan, a previous great friend who now attends the school, the two boys are qu...

    I had planned to start reading this book yesterday since I had just finished a very long book the night before and thought I should take a little bit of time off before starting a new one. Well, that didn't happen. Two hours after I finished that book and had gone to bed, I was still w...

    I became interested in this book because of a shout put by Arthur Slade. He spoke so highly about it, I knew I had to give it a read. Being completely honest I had not encountered any of Susin Neilsen's works before giving this one a read, even in my years as a bookseller. As an introd...

    I admire the hell out of Susin Nielsen for tackling the topics she does. It isn?t easy to talk about controversial subjects like poverty and homelessness to a middle grade audience. And yet, Susin Nielsen tries? and, in my opinion, does a superb job of discussing them. What I l...
