This book takes you on an adventure through Abbie Wu’s life. Author Booki Vivat describes in detail how Abbie feels about many things. Abbie has a strong opinion about everything, from not being in her friend’s class at school to what she gets in her lunch. Join Abbie Wu as she figures out who she is, what her thing is, and mostly how to survive middle school.
I liked the similes, hyperboles and details used in this book. I would rate it 3.5 stars for anyone in grades 2-4.

The Secret of a Heart Note is your average contemporary read with a nice twist. Our heroine Mimoma descends from a long line of aromateurs. This means that she can smell heartbreak and identify anything from a hint of emotion to someone's lovesickness from a distance away. With this ability, Mim thinks she is doomed to weeding herbs, mixing love elixirs and matchmaking her entire life (since this is an aromateur's job afterall). But a series of accident involving a matchmaking gone wrong, an unexpected request and a boy suddenly change everything, even her heart.
This book is certainly a cute and lovely read, I don't necessary adored it but I like it enough to recommend it to others. Beside several familiar tropes that I've seen enough in contemporary novels, the touch of magic definitely made up for it. It spiced up the plot as well as my enjoyment for this book. Mimosa is a well rounded character, I connected with her optimism when things don't work out and how she wants badly to do things she was told not to. It was also nice to see the family dynamic, the friendship and the romance turns out the way I had hoped. Definitely check out this book if you are in need of a light and cute read. 3.5/5 Stars.
