    One thought on “Little Celeste”

    1. Originally reviewed on The Escapist.***Rating: 3.5*Mini review*Little Celeste is a short novel about the eleven year-old main character, Shelley, who found a "magical" baby on her room. She then called this baby "Celeste" and realized it is only her who can see Celeste. Since no one can see Celeste except her, she took care of her. Now Celeste's been with her journey, pain, and loneliness--and somehow helped her to be happy.With the entertaining voice of Shelley, I was instantly drawn into the s [...]

    2. Very cute and had a Ghibli-feel, but found it a little all over the place! I think it'll be a well loved Children's book, though. you can read my mini review here, when my blog post goes live, Jan 20th! booksandwritersjnr.wordpress.c

    3. The story was light to read, but too light for my liking.I felt like it lacked a little more depth to it, and a little more vivid description of the events. It’s fast-paced for me too. Perhaps, it could pass for a children’s book.

    4. I like books where there is magic and the kid finds a little baby in their bedroom, and the kid always comes back to her when it goes away.

    5. After reading this book in two chunks, and probably in about 3 hours overall, I'm not sure what to make of it. It's one of those books where I'm sure even if a read it a million more times or brooded over it for weeks on end, I'd still not know what to make of it!The book started off jumping straight into the main storyline, that's to say, about half of everything that happened in the book was on the first page (which had very few words). I was glad of this because the start might have been bori [...]

    6. Check out my review on my blog: adventuresofateenagebookworm.b- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Thank you to Hot Key Books publishing for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really love the purple and pink cover of the book and think it looks great on my shelf. I enjoyed this book but I didn't love it. The book overall felt a little bland for me. It was okay but not really good or great in any way. I liked the protagonist of the novel, Shelly, as she was cute, fu [...]

    7. Review by BethSuch a sweet concept hiding a much darker reality, Little Celeste is a creation of Shelley to find a way to cope with the way her life is going. Shelley is a strong and believable character who it is impossible not to like. As a novel written for 9-12 year olds I can imagine that I would have loved Shelley when I was that age.When Celeste appears Shelley is shocked and scared but ultimately smitten. Rather than viewing Celeste as a problem, Shelley takes her on immediately and has [...]

    8. *3.5 cupcakesThis was different and quite adorable. I'm not exactly sure how the whole thing happened and some explanation would be nice. The theme (mother/daughter relationships) didn't feel fully developed and I didn't think it was constructed very well but I still flew this book and really enjoyed it! I think if I'd read this when I was younger I would've loved it even more. Like I said, I flew through this and for the most part I liked it, but the relationships didn't feel fully-developed an [...]

    9. Little Celeste sounded like the kind of book I would enjoy- unusual and slightly fantastical without veering into out and out science fiction. Infact, although it is a read which has a magical feel, it is very much about family and belonging. The mystery of Celeste and where she came from had me guessing for quite a while, although I wasn't surprised by the revelation when it came. This book has a fairytale feel and offers a fresh and unique take on how it feels to be a child in a family-the lac [...]

    10. I thought Shelley was pretty easy to love, I didn’t like her all the time but understood why she did the things she did. Her narration reads like that of an eleven-year-old, which worked for me but might not be for everyone. Towards the end of the book (when Shelley is sick) I thought Dawn McNiff really pulled the heartstrings; I was all torn up for this little girl. Little Celeste is a cute/fantastical read for the most part, but ever so often I needed something to hug.

    11. Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars for me. The storyline itself was a bit muddled and I found all but the main character to be two dimensional, but this book really made me think, and more importantly FEEL. I believe it could be a really influential book for the right young reader.
