    1. Mariel on said:

      This book embarrassed me a little It embarrassed me than a little I m no stranger to self pity and talking myself into not doing things.It is also embarrassing because it is cloying and whiney.Louise nicknamed Wheeze slumps in the shadowed footsteps of her twin sister, Caroline Caroline is very clever Wheeze is not a sexy nickname She totally eliminated the competition with that strategic strategy The fam and Caroline, as well as their whole island, love everything about Caroline, anyway You kn [...]

      I read this book several times as a teen I was drawn to the story of the two sisters I found myself both disturbed and fascinated by the cleft between them, and nursed Sarah Louise s injustices as if they were my own I was also captivated by the beautiful imagery and the setting along the Chesapeake Bay that was, to me, strange and fascinating.Recently I returned to the book, reading it for the first time as an adult It was a completely different experience It became a story about how we perceiv [...]

      I remember loving this book as a kid, so I picked it up the other day I m not exactly sure why I liked it so much, because this time around I didn t find it nearly entertaining Also I didn t feel sorry for Louise this time around most everything Caroline got that Louise didn t was due to Louise s inability to speak up, or because her attempts to get something for herself completely backfired due to her passive aggressive ways of doing so.Also, I must say, I got a little wigged out when she hugge [...]

    4. V_murray on said:

      This book should be read without the presentiment that the heroine is going to be heroic, selfless, lovely, or even pleasant.To judge the book based on that is to completely miss the point of this novel.No, Sara Louise isn t a pleasant heroine She is eaten up with neglect, bitterness, jealousy, and it s difficult to tell whether she has self loathing or loathing for anything or anyone who isn t herself, at least for childhood through adolescence.With that said, it is vitally important that this [...]

      THE STUPIDEST BOOK EVER WHAT WERE THE NEWBERY PEOPLE THINKING You may be taking a dislike to me at this minute for criticizing the great and mighty prodigy that is Katherine Patterson I accept that my opinion is not popular It makes me feel special I just have never liked Katherine Patterson If I read a book by her that garners than two stars however unlikely I believe in miracles, though , don t expect me to apologize for this This book is one of the only books that I, the soft and plushy book [...]

    6. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      From the author of the wonderfully imaginative Bridge to Terabithia, Jacob I Have Loved, targeted at older readers, is a really profound and impressive story about the futility of sibling rivalry and the importance of family unity.

    7. Amy on said:

      I must have read this girlhood favorite a dozen times, the tears dropping onto the pages regardless of how familiar the words and storyline had become Something about Sara Louise s intense sibling rivalry and inability to recognize her parents love for her spoke to me, a second child who frequently felt overshadowed by my older brother Her earnest desire for God s love amidst fear of His disapproval also reflected my search to feel God s love for me in all my messy imperfection.20 years have pas [...]

    8. Annalisa on said:

      I loved reading this book with my daughter and seeing it both through her eyes and mine, from the parent and the child s point of view I felt the injustice of Caroline s special treatment and how it affected Sara Louise, the pain of being the unloved child, the adaptable one that s easy to ignore I could so relate to my own life, slipping through the cracks when I wouldn t speak up for myself At times I wanted to shake Caroline for being so selfish and taking so much away from her sister.But ano [...]

      Lines that I loved It would have been harder to stay away and imagine what people were staying about me than to go and face them.How could I face a lifetime of passive waiting For a moment is our sorrow Joy forever in the sky.But to fear is one thing To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.Annoyance drove out panic.But I was not a generous person I couldn t afford to be Call was my only friend If I gave him up to the Captain, I d have no one.She would not fight with me P [...]

    10. Kathryn on said:

      I absolutely hated this book It doesn t even give you the satisfaction of seeing Miss Perfect Goldilocks get hers in the end or at least, seeing her admit what a hell she made for her sister.I really don t understand why this received the Newberry I read it because I felt I had missed something but now I wished I hadn t Books tend to become part of your soul and this one gave and continues to give me the creeps The most depressing story I ve ever read in my life.

    11. Becky on said:

      I read this beautifully written book in one sitting It s the story of Louise, a young girl growing up in the shadow of her beautiful, talented twin sister In the course of the book, Louise endures the youthful tribulations of falling in love first with a man who s almost old enough to be her grandfather, then with a childhood friend who used to seem second rate to her and finding a place for herself doing man s work in the tiny, insulated island community in which she lives.The book doesn t have [...]

    12. Erin Casey on said:

      I highly recommend this book to teen girls and their parents The central girl is foiled at every turn in her life by lack of money, lack of parental support, lack of beauty and also by her overbearing and truly gifted sister When she connects with her grandmother, listens to her and learns to let go of all these restrictions, to let go of any resentment, frustration or bitterness and to get out and do what she needs to do to live her own life, she does She finds peace, happiness and eventually a [...]

      This story was, for me, a painful journey through adolescence with Sara Louise Wheeze Bradshaw The teen years are, for some, a time of confusion, heartache, anger, and bewilderment Certainly this is the case for Sara Louise The story is packed with a variety of personalities, issues, and emotions and Wheeze is a sensitive and perceptive girl who feels and thinks deeply Eventually, she manages to lurch her way through many troubling situations into adulthood, but the reader who goes along for the [...]

      Louise Bradshaw is a teenager when the Japanese attack Pearl Harbour in December 1941 Her family ekes out a tough existence fishing on Chesapeake Bay, in a desolate, windswept environment The fishing consists of crab collecting in one season, oyster harvesting in the other The work is hard, but consistent, and although it does not pay well, there is a steady income The small population of Rass Island is doggedly Methodist, with strict rules for living, and strong censure for any form of deviatio [...]

    17. John Hsu on said:

      Listened to this on audiobook, which probably made it worse because you couldn t accelerate through the miserableness of the lead character There s some decent storytelling in here but it really comes across as a score settling diatribe written by a self pitying girl who hated her twin s guts.That topic could be covered winningly with real humor, perspective or at least some dramatic progression but hardly anything significant happens to the central conflict in the book Instead, it all kinda pet [...]

    18. Tsorningold on said:

      A book of incomparable unfairness I am not saying every story needs to be wrapped up in clean white bows, I am saying that my 13 year old self was not prepared for the grossly overstated cruelty of life presented in this book I hate it.

    19. Erin Reilly-Sanders on said:

      This book makes a great case for the importance of guided reading, as well as getting the age group right on the audience While Sara Louise is thirteen, the themes are not really appropriate or understandable for younger kids I was given this book as a gift I forget at what age maybe 11 and hated it when I read it because I couldn t understand it Reading it for the second time in an adolescent literature class, I loved it The discussion and classroom questions helped focus my thoughts and discov [...]

    20. Penny on said:

      I was debating between two and three stars on this one, but I realized that I sat and finished it when I should have been doing other things, so I took that as a sign that it deserved three I did like the tormented adolescent protagonist, and I was anxious to know how things would work out for her.That said, this one seems a little weak for a Newbery winner After lingering over Sara Louise s adolescence, the last two chapters rushing through a big chunk of her adult life seem out of place, and n [...]

      I have to say I wasn t too sure about this book I haven t read any other Katherine Paterson although I did see the movie, Bridge to Terabithia The summary just didn t really grab me However it wasn t long into the book before I didn t want to put it down I felt pure anger towards Caroline and the parents for their treatment of Louise I was enraged quite a few times during the book.I liked the writing style and the story and look forward to reading Katherine Paterson I can see why it won the New [...]

    22. Christa on said:

      Minus one star for how whiny the main character is I get it, Caroline is better than you in all ways I usually like the underdog but she was so bratty no wonder no one on the island cared Plus one star for addressing hormones and puberty in teen girls Minus that star for her sexual feelings to come from a seventy year old man s fingernails Minus one star for the relationship between the sisters never being resolved Especially when Louise is a happily married mother Plus one star for the depictio [...]

      In keeping with Annalynn s post about classics, I wanted to post about one of my favorite YA classics.It isn t often that you read a book as a teen and love it then come back to it as an adult and love it even This book is my own personal Catcher in the Rye Louise gave my adolescent self a voice that I didn t know I needed.Synopsis ala Louise has had enough of her twin sister Caroline is beautiful Caroline is talented Caroline is better Growing up on the small island of Rass in Chesapeake Bay, [...]

      Jacob Have I Loved, winner of the 1981 Newberry Award, explores themes of sibling rivalry, jealousy, and being torn between desire and duty All her life, Sara Louise has been overshadowed by her prettier, talented twin sister Caroline who calls her the distasteful nickname Wheeze Caroline s singing voice allows for a life filled with opportunities, but what can Louise do other than help with crabbing and oyster fishing When a mysterious sea captain comes to the island, Sara Louise hopes that he [...]

    25. Michael Galdamez on said:

      You know those books that you read because you just can t stop even though you can t figure out whether you even like it or not.Yeah This was that book.Again, I still can t figure if I really liked it or not that s one reason I rated it 3 Stars right in the middle The characters are all aggravating except for a choice few The story is odd and seemingly random And the ending was extremely unsatisfactory.Doesn t sound very good, does it Then why the heck was it so gripping That s my question.

    26. Annerlee on said:

      A beautiful novel with a great sense of place Believable characters, amusing at times Excellent read.

    27. Cherie on said:

      A little old fashioned, but true to its time The story of a girl, her family and a community living on an island in the Chesapeake Bay slowly being encroached by the sea Set during the Second World War and after, her memories of her world and her struggle with who she is, and who she is going to be touched my heart.

    28. Josiah on said:

      I actually would have awarded the 1981 Newbery Medal to Jane Langton s The Fledgling , but Katherine Paterson comes through beautifully once again in the telling of Jacob Have I Loved Tackling intriguing and even viscerally taboo subject matter, Katherine Paterson fleshes out a completely realized and deeply felt story of rivalry between sisters It is a contentious relationship that will appeal not only to readers who have experienced similar family dynamics, but also to those of us who have fel [...]

    29. Kressel Housman on said:

      I read this at age 14 I liked it, but didn t love it Naturally, I identified with the lesser loved sister, but I think Rochel Leah would have been a better analogy than Jacob Esau In any case, it was fascinating to learn this was written by the author of Bridge to Terabithia, which only goes to show that authors improve with time.
