    One thought on “Dear Toni”

    1. The Good Stuff * A truly outstanding absolutely delightfully honest and real book * The 1st chapter grabs your attention right away - especially for the 8-10 set * Loved the design of the book with the lined paper look and the doodles all over the pages * Gene has a fantastically biting sarcastic wit * The book really feels like it was written by a 12 year old -- and no that is not a dig -- just that it will really resonate with the pre-tweens and their feelings and thoughts are portrayed honest [...]

    2. Written and drawn in the now familiar style of "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid", this is the journal of Gene Tucks, a 6th grader whose teacher has assigned them to write for 100 consecutive days. At the end of the time, their journals will all be given to a museum and put in a time capsule to be opened in 40 years.Gene (who is actually a girl) is not thrilled with the assignment. She is new to town and is struggling to make friends and fit in. Her story is actually quite believable as she does not ins [...]

    3. This is a great book for those kids who aren't keen on reading and prefer the format of Dork Diaries and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It is written in diary form as a 6th grade project and includes humorous doodles throughout (for those kids who like books with pictures!). It also reads like a 6th grader actually wrote it and it was a very quick read. Gene comes full circle as the 100 day journal project comes to an end and she matures a fair bit. BOB: In which book does Gene, an unpopular 6th grade gi [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book. It is aimed at ages 8-12 and I would agree. The book is designed to look like an actual journal, with lined pages plus Gene includes hand-drawn doodles which really make the journal come alive. Even the page numbers look hand written. The story was cute and had some good lessons and most importantly, it sounded like a 6th grader writing which is what Gene is. It has high points and low points, happy points and sad points and really captured my interest even at age 25. [...]

    5. Dear Toni captures the idea of a child in the situation she has gone through. It shows when she was disappointed or mad or angry because when I read it I realized that I would act the same way that she has because of the way Cyndi Sand-Eveland wrote it in the eyes of 12 year old Gene. This book shows a clear understanding of what it would be like to be in Gene's shoes. I really enjoyed this book but I think that it lacked excitement.

    6. I love books told in diary or letter form and this one is no exception. The main character has to keep a journal as a school assignment, something she thinks is just lame. As time passes, the journal becomes a tool for growth and insight. (Duh!) If only more kids kept journals as a tool for self reflection.

    7. This book was not interesting, despite its unique concept of writing a journal and having someone read it forty years into the future. I feel like it has potential to be more, but maybe this book was just meant to be very simple to prove the book's point. Either way, I didn't enjoy it. It was okay, but nothing really resonated with me after reading it.

    8. I thought this book was good, but it did not quite hold my interest. It was slightly boring and predictable. It wasn't completely horrible though, and it shows how a young girl developed a love for writing of the 100 days she had her journal.

    9. A quick-read journal by a sixth-grader, Gene Tucks. Given a hundred-day journal writing assignment, Gene shares her "boring" life with a sixth-grader forty years in the future (time capsule). Of course, her life turns out to be anything but boring. A good book for reluctant readers.

    10. The idea of this one is cute, with Gene having to write a journal for 100 days to a 6th grader 40 years in the future. My favorite part of the book has to be the "doodles" in the various entries. A solid book, neither good nor bad, but solid. For grades 4-6.

    11. This was an interesting read for the most part, but it seemed old hat to me. Perhaps I've read too many diary type of books and I felt that the time capsule was rather dated. The main character was believable, but the end was rather contrived.

    12. Okay, but not my favorite. I had to read it because one of my dear library colleagues who got it ready for our library put a sticky note on it that finished the title with "You are the best Librarian."

    13. Added to my "To Read" shelf after winning the Ontario Library Association's Silver Birch Express Award (Grades 3/4) for 2010.

    14. Buku bahan siaran 20 Juni 2015 yang bertemakan surat. Buku ini pas banget dibaca sama anak-anak. Lumayan seru.
