A cute review of Gravity

February 15th, 2010 Comments Off on A cute review of Gravity

This is such a nice review of Gravity by Elyse C. from Greendale School. I especially love the part where she says, “it’s not a very popular or famous book…” I knew what you meant, Elyse. 😉

Gravity Brings Me Down –

I recently read the book, Gravity Brings Me Down by Natale Ghent, and I have to say that it was one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s not a very popular or famous book, but I recommend it to anyone especially girls, but guys too!

Sioux Smith is confused about life and miserable, seemingly falling deeper and deeper in her pessimism. Constantly wondering about life and death – Is something or someone out there? Why are we alive? Why do we die? She seems to close herself off from life around her, when one day she spots an elderly woman trudging slowly across the busy street and when she decides to help her, she has no idea what she’s started. Many other chance meetings with the old woman – who is always insisting that Sioux is her youngest daughter, Marie – result in an unlikely friendship.

Through Sioux’s sharp voice, perfected with her smart, dark humour, Natale Ghent tells an incredibly touching, hilarious, unique, and all around incredible story about finding friendship, finding love, finding acceptance, and finding yourself. Complete with secrets, questions, an always nearby not-so-secret admirer, and strange teachers with even crazier secrets, “Gravity Brings Me Down” is funny, heartwarming, and extremely unforgettable.
