    Martha s Vineyard is a special place for me, so it s always a treat to read a book set on the island This book does a great job of capturing some of the magic of different parts and the overall vibe of the Vineyard, but even than that, this book really was amazing at capturing middle grade angst and some of the issues of growing up.Cove Bernstein lives with her mother, a free spirited artist on Martha s Vineyard She has had some problems fitting in at school, but as long as she has her best friend Nina, everything is fine But when Nina has to move to NYC and her mother starts dating a new boyfriend, Cove s world starts to fall apart Not only friendless, Cove becomes the target of a bullying campaign.This book was beautifully written, with a well crafted description of life on ...

    I love Cove so much and I could relate to her story My best friend also moved away when we were about that age, and as the person left behind in a small town while your best friend moves to a city, I can tell you that it sucks.It s made worse for Cove because she s not particularly popular most kids leave her alone, but these four popular girls seem to have it in for her and it s for no real reason, which makes it even harder and so now she has a lot of free time and not much to do to fill it...

    MG DESTINATION FICTIONThe great and horrible thing about living in a wonderful vacation destination like Martha s Vineyard is that everyone comes and everyone goes Or at least that s how things are turning out for Cove Bernstein It s no plot buster to tell you that Cove s best friend Nina leaves right at the beginning of OUT OF PLACE, a debut MG novel by the talented Jen Blecher Cove and Nina have been besties forever and things will never be the same for Cove with out Nina Yet Cove is resilient despite her eccentric and borderline agoraphobic mother and she sets out on her own to make new friends of all ages, take on new hobbies, and stand up to the local bullies But her new allies spoiler alert also leave the island one by one or announce their plans to leave and there s only one thing for Cove to do, which is figure out a way to leave, too OUT OF PLACE is a love letter to Martha s Vineyard, and a wholesome and sweet, emotion driven first novel with a g...
