    One thought on “Libby on Wednesday”

    1. I picked up a copy of this after asking all my friends to recommend books that have homeschooled characters in them I knew nothing else about the book, and it turned out I was getting into something a bit darker than I expected.I enjoyed the story, even if it was somewhat predictable and stereotyped a bunch of misfits turn out to be complicated than they appear on the surface, and become friends However, there were several problems.First, the portrayal of homeschooling was good, but the portray [...]

    2. Libby has always been schooled by her quirky family But now, her mother is forcing to attend school and be socialized She quickly decides that she absolutely despises Morrison Middle School To make matters worse, she has to join a writing club that meets ever single Wednesday The group members are very different from one another There is a bully, a boy with a disease, a girl obessed with punk and detective stories and a stereotypical cheerleader Libby doesn t ever think she will be friends with [...]

    3. This book is charming in a way that I remember a lot of YA novels being A rag tag group of kids become friends The main character lives in a run down mansion and has an awesome treehouse I think reading it as an adult has let me definitely see that I missed the un related adult male friend of the father who lives with them so subtext that even as an adult I question is he, isn t he , the coping mechanisms, invisible disabilities.However, it s not to say the novel doesn t have some pretty clear [...]

    4. This is one of my favorite kids books of all time.Libby is a gifted student who has to adjust to being in a regular school after being home schooled for a long time At first she expects to be miserable, but things improve when she is placed in a Wednesday afternoon writers group with an odd assortment of other gifted nerds.I don t want to give away any of the plot, but I will say that Libby is delightful and her new friends seem real despite their quirkiness.

    5. Libby McCall has been home schooled Now, at eleven, Libby is in public school for the first time because her mother thinks she needs to be socialized Being precocious, Libby is placed in eighth grade, a grade where even so called normal students are often subject to ridicule Libby doesn t know how much contact she can take with her peers, who make fun of her because she is small and smart When she wins the prize of a weekly writing workshop with four other students, rather than risk ridicule, L [...]

    6. I love Zilpha Keatley Snyder s writing she manages complexity without writing over the kids heads this based on my reading them when I was the intended age group, not now as an adult.This one left me feeling like I d read a novelization of one of those ghastly after school specials that seemed like a cut rate Disney theatrical release.There was hypertokenism, in a late eighties Marin sort of way one of the kids has a mild case of cerebral palsy, just enough to make obvious that there s something [...]

    7. I like Libby I think she s precocious, believable, studious, and relatable I love the characterization of her family except her mom sounds awful and obnoxious and descriptions of her house I m not sure why people say this book is predictable For me, the ending is disturbing and probably the worst, most boding ending I ve ever encountered in a YA novel It s also a little juvenile in its plot And then they went to meetings And then she came over to her house And played billiards And then they took [...]

    8. Bless, she s me Granted, a little well rounded and bohemian than my books to the exclusion of all else mindset at age eleven twelve But her anger at her peers, her hatred of the concept of socialization , writing it all down with a lot of dashes and exclamation pointswhere was this book when I was her age it was published when I was twelve, why did no one tell me The subplot of G.G s home life is a little afterschool special, but it s dealt with honestly and straightforwardly as is the end, whe [...]

    9. I really enjoyed this book about an 11 year old girl who lives in a rundown castle with her strange family father, grandma, great aunt, and a man who is no relation After being home schooled for six years, her mother who lives in New York , decides Libby must go to school and become socialized So she does, and she hates it The kids all make fun of her and make her life miserable But, in the end, she makes some good friends, and even saves a boy s life.

    10. Granted, having never read this book as a kid, I am not nostalgically tied to this book at all Still, I did enjoy reading this story It was heart warming Sickeningly so I was far intrigued by the McCall home and the lord generations living there, rather than the kids or anything that they had to experience Now that I have seen the inside of this house, give me about it, and the eldest author McCall

    11. I read this book a long time ago, but I remember liking it Libby had what seemed like an idyllic private life a rich imagination, big beautiful house, a treehouse, loving and intellectual parents She struggled at school in ways I could identify with The other children were well drawn enough that they seemed like people It also shared some pretty strong lessons in writing and peer review that have stuck with me.

    12. Libby has to go to public school She hates it and tells her family lies Then she gets awarded for winning the writing contest at Morrison Middle School and gets to be in a club called the FFW The people in the FFW are very interesting and all have their own personalities This book is pretty good although very slow at times.

    13. I found this author in 7th grade I read everything she wrote I love just about all of it This one is realistic ficiton than the others, but I ve reread it as adult at least twice If you like young adult books and have the occasional flair for fantasy Black and Blue Magic, The Velvet Room, and one series about tiny tree people , find a book of hers that sounds interesting.

    14. I remember the dedication in this book, for all the readers who wrote to me saying, I write too It s about a girl from a dysfunctional family who writes, and all the interesting people she becomes friends with in her writing group I ve wanted to be a writer since 8th grade, when I read this book My copy s cover was different, with a purple border and a much better picture of Libby

    15. My daughter just read this book so I thought I d pick it up and see how it went I really quite enjoyed it It had some good life lessons about how we perceive others and the hidden motives for their actions that we may not especially as children recognize Fairly realistic, interesting characters, and a good description of the navigation of the rocky waters of childhood friendships.

    16. a childhood favorite about a misfit girl who comes from a family of eccentrics and lives in an old dilapidated mansion she is asked to join a writing club at her school, composed of other misfits who represent different high school characters.a literary breakfast club of sorts, but better.

    17. chicken soup for the precocious girl s soul libby lives at a crumbling mansion with a bunch of eccentrics and her hobby is making museum like exhibits of stuff from a particular period the 30s are her favorite and no one at school likes her until they do

    18. The first half of the book starts out really slow but it has a good ending and its a good book to use for teaching friendship.

    19. Not my very favorite but not my least favorite either Nice exploration of feeling like a social outcast particularly as it relates to family of origin Nothing terribly new, but a nice read.

    20. I also read this one years ago I do not remember much about about this book I know she was a writer I was intrigued by the club mentality and the tree house.

    21. I think every school age kid should read this Great story about getting along with people that are different than you.

    22. Not awful, but not amazing I liked it, but wouldn t read it again I definitely like The Velvet Room better.

    23. I remember loving this when I was younger, I think mostly because I coveted her house and her tree house.
