sam writes the following about Bloomability :

?Bloomability? by Sharon Creech is a very good book. I had trouble actually wanting to pick up the book and read it until I got to the middle of the book. This book is realistic and sweet. I would rate the book an 8.5 out of 10, because the book is real and full of excitement!

Dinnie is ?kidnapped? by her aunt and uncle. She is moved from her world with her mom ? an artist, her dad- who always has new opportunities, moving them all over the U.S, her sister Stella and her brother Crick all because Stella finds out she is pregnant. Her family can?t afford to support everyone, so Dinnie is chosen to leave. In Switzerland, where her Uncle Max is the headmaster of an International School where people come from all over the world, Dinnie meets tons of great new people, including Guthrie, who is great, always screaming, ?Libero!? meaning ?free?.

The only book similar to this book I can think of is ?Zilliah and Me?, is about a young girl who goes away to visit her grandma. They are both realistic fiction. These books are alike because they are about a girl who goes to a different town and starts a new life. They are different though, because in ?Bloomability? Dinnie goes to Switzerland. In ?Zilliah and Me? she only goes a couple miles out of her town.

There are no illustrations in this book except for the cover. I think there should be a little picture at the top of each chapter so the header can have a little hint on what is coming in that chapter. My only suggestion for improving this book is to make a sequel! This is because it is left open-ended. As though there should be a few more chapters. The author needs to wrap up the story.
