The author of Also Known as Harper (2009), Leal creates strong, particular characters as good as the credible narrative of the family in disarray. --Booklist MY REVIEW/THOUGHTS:It is easy to see which Ann Haywood Leal knows children. As the former elementary teacher myself, we was drawn to Ann's initial book, ALSO KNOWN AS HARPER by the characters as good as A FINDERS-KEEPERS PLACE is no different. The some-more we sense about Esther as good as the life she leads, the some-more we feel for her. Her perplexing to caring for EVERYONE during such the immature age, is not fantasy, unfortunately, in this day as good as age. we consider Leal prisoner the hint of this immature lady as good as the pain, as good as reason for her pain, in this book. we would rarely recommend this to readers as good as generally to intermediate/young adults as well.
