    1. Maizon at Blue Hill felt different from many of the books that I read in grade school It was interesting that Maizon had a number of positive and negative character attributes, most of which were the same at the end of the book It was interesting how there was relatively little character transformation In the beginning of the book, Maizon speaks what is on her mind, good and bad She is somewhat conceited and assertive That dumb school isn t even ready for me Woodson 16 In her last conversation t [...]

    6. I love the way that Jacqueline Woodson can create characters that you can picture in your head They are very human and I find myself visualizing them easily I just wish this book were longer I couldn t believe how short it felt I was very surprised at how it ended, not just how quickly, but what happened I guess it s reality, that s how things aret everybody decides that sticking with it is the best way to go, and I think this book would create rich discussion in a book group Why does she decide [...]

    7. This book made me homesick The experience of dislocation is brilliantly if painfully encapsulated in the story of teenage Maizon leaving her loving black Brooklyn enclave for a white, upper class Connecticut prep school YA novels are usually about conquering new worlds, so I was surprised that Maizon didn t adapt, remaining isolated by race She s an anti heroine, taking action by refusing and retreating but there is no question that she is admirable Her refusal is a moral refusal to accommodate [...]

    8. REQUIRED AUTHOR JACQUELINE WOODSONMaizon rhymes with raisin, which would have been nice to have known at the beginning of the book is accepted to Blue Hill Academy on scholarship, but she has doubts about leaving her home and her friends and family She does well in school at Blue Hill, but ultimately decides she s not ready to leave her home behind.I didn t like it, but to be fair that s probably at least partially due to its being a middle sort of book in a series and the fact that I haven t re [...]

    13. I liked this book, but I didn t love it It was definitely realistic fiction, and I definitely liked the main character, Maizon The only problem for me was that it was a bit difficult to keep track of the characters at the prep school I also didn t feel the strength of the bond between Maizon and her best friend, which was apparently so tight it made a difference in the path her life took This was the same problem in If You Come Softly by Woodson I just can t feel the bond between the characters [...]

    15. I read this book first in Japanese, because it was recommended to me by a teacher here, and the Japanese edition arrived first I was a little disappointed that the English language original seemed to be missing parts that were in the translation if they are abridging books, they really ought to write it somewhere This is the middle of a three book series, so I will borrow the Japanese versions of the rest of the series from my school library.The translation includes cultural notes that make the [...]
