New Customer Review - The Language of Goldfish

The Language of Goldfish
by Zibby Oneal [j]

An effective portrayal of a teenager's mental breakdown! Everything is changing for Carrie, from her relationships to her interests and even her body. Carrie resists these changes, wherein lies her story. When we meet Carrie, she is appreciating math. To her, math didn't shift and change as things often did in her head. I like how Oneal layers her book with characters and description. She overdoes the details devoted to minor characters and some of her descriptions are a little odd. Over all, The Language of Goldfish is a somewhat sad but hopeful story about surviving change. [Note: The only copies of this Nebraska author's title in the Lincoln City Libraries are in the non-circulating Heritage Room collection -- consider ordering this title through InterLibrary Loan!] -- review submitted by Allison H.-F. - a customer of the Bennett Martin Public Library
