About book Breadcrumbs (2011)

Descriptively beautiful, evocative. At the same time, dark and somewhat depressing tale of an eleven year old growing up under stress of divorce, adoption, loss of friendship. Fantasy well told with welcome references to Harry Potter, the Golden Compass, and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Glad I read it but I'm not sure I would recommend it to students. Maybe I would be very selective in giving it to certain students. I really wanted to love this book. I thought the cover was beautiful, and I love fairytale retellings. The truth is, though, that I really disliked the first part of this book. I thought Hazel was excessively self-absorbed or Jack-absorbed. She couldn't even see other people trying to make friends with her. The first part was almost boring for me, and I had to force myself to get through it. However, once part two began, I did a complete 180 degree turn. I still didn't like the first half, but part two was so beautiful and wonderful. Once Hazel began on her journey, I was hooked. I loved the world that Anne Ursu created, and I couldn't put the book down. The characters that Hazel meets in the woods are all so wonderful in the way Ursu wrote them. Even the most terrifying were creatively approached. I loved the second half so much, and I wanted to read more about the magically world that was created. I was sad when it ended. I do which the story had a little more conclusion and a stronger beginning, but the last half of the book was amazing. I don't think I would ever reread part one, but I definitely am thinking about going back to read part two someday.

I loved this book! It had a normal everyday life part then a out-of-this world fairy tale story!!!

For a younger audience maybe 10-13, but I thought it was a cute story of friendship
