complement and often compliment each other after being thrown together and pulled apart by well intended parenting is there any better or worse kind To Night Owl from Dogfish is love story about friendship and family and, I think, a classic middle grade novel in the vein of some of the best books of my childhood From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler, Harriet the Spy, and The

to say about this modern day, epistolary novel Where to start the characters sucked me in the feisty, anti rule Bett and Avery, the overly aware intellectual who reads so much that the world is a scary place, a place which one should avoid Both are twelve going on thirteen and are at the age of dipping their toes into the pond of independence from their single, gay dads One of Avery s great fears is water, so even dipping a toe into that pond makes her reach for her inhaler Their dads are actually the ones who give both girls the push by falling in love and placing their daughters in the same summer camp for the summer while they take off for a motorcycle trip around China Through mostly emails, Sloan and Wolitzer have their respective characters reveal themselves and their growth It s a book about friendship and opposites attracting, but the book also uncovers how parents who are supposed to be the adults act like toddlers who are self centered and at times treat their children as dolls to boss around We see good parents behaving irrationally and stripping their kids of their own voices and power We also see how kids use subterfuge to maintain some of their personal power and choice.After years of teaching one of my favorite books Counting By Sevens, it is difficult for me not to see Avery as Willow s cousin One significant difference is that while Willow ends up leading her quirky cast of characters into a community by bringing out the best in each, Avery learns from Bett how to navigate the outside world Bett also learns from Avery about the ups and downs of lasting friendship and the need at times to use caution and safety features To Night Owl from Dogfish has a cast of wonderful, complex, three dimensional characters who make this novel fun, funny, unconventional, poignant, and a non stop page turner Reality reflects fiction Not only did TWO excellent, imaginative writers collaborate on the writing, but TWO excellent, creative editors from TWO

experience a bit I m a lot like Avery in the way I have a hard time with people and making friends I was fortunate enough to grow up in the internet generation so, through my childhood, I had experience with chat rooms and forums To this day, one of my closest friends, is someone I have only ever communicated with from afar I m also part of an online community that feels like a family So, the concept of this book sounded really cute and interesting.I liked how different Bett and Avery were These characters were clearly made to challenge each other, which is fine I did find their initial interaction to be convoluted Bett claimed she found Avery s information through Avery s school website I don t buy that Information like that is supposed to be protected behind login information so you have to be a part of the school system to access it It would have made sense for Bett to make a lucky guess and get the email right, or to find a personal email Avery used for Facebook or something But, again, the way my schools handle things could be vastly different from others.Bett also felt like an example of forced diversity One of the first things she feels like she needs to point out is that her surrogate mother is African American, so she is also African American It was like the authors were trying to say, Hey, here s our confirmed black character but there wasn t anything else to it Again, I have friends from all over the world so it seemed odd to me that this kid would make a comment like that.The summer camp thing was odd too Again, I ve been a participant of summer camps, and I ve helped run ones through my church Somehow, Bett is able to find Avery s mom, contact her, and Avery is able to leave with this woman even though she isn t an emergency contact Again, there are systems in place so things like this don t happen Avery s mom could have hurt her in the past, but it s fine She s a famous something, so she gets a pass No If a camp like this exists, please don t send your kids there What in the world Later in the book, the girls go to a different summer camp Okay Cool One of the other girls at this camp says awful, homophobic things and they don t really get challenged And, by the end of the book, the girls are somehow all friends I do wish the entire book wasn t just in email because it doesn t allow the authors to unpack things properly like the homophobic comments, what camp life is like, how Avery and Bett really interact with they are next to each other There are just a lot of ways this story telling format can fail, and this one definitely failed.I didn t hate everything about this book First off, the format made it extremely easy to read A kid will eat this story up I also liked how this book spanned at least a year of time Not that we know that because timestamps don t exist in these emails The book just starts when the girls are going to a summer camp, and there s a point in time where they have to find a second summer camp to go through Either this is a very long summer, or the book spans at least a year Anyways, another thing I liked was how there were conflicts between Bett

sending the twelve year olds to the same summer camp, hoping to form a family The girls do not want to meet or become friends or especially a family, and they strategize to sabotage their fathers plan.What follows is a year and a half of emails and letters, even though the girls do meet at camp, get themselves thrown out, become friends, and even each the support system of the other The fathers relationship does not fare as well and that becomes another challenge for these two who now view themselves as sisters in an extended family that spanned the country but appears to have become centered in NYC and now includes a mother and grandmother.When I first saw that the entire story was a series of emails and letters, I thought I would be disappointed, but the novel was mesmerizing as the plot twisted and turned, personalities were revealed, new characters entered and sent their own missives to each other and to the girls, and I actually feel that there might have been character and plot development in this well written offering by the two authors, an all time favorite of mine, Holly Goldberg Sloan and a new introduction to me Meg Woliitzer.The novel reminded me of a novel I just read and reviewed, Two Naomis written by Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovick and AudreyVernick, but in that novel when their divorced parents plan to marry and plot for the ten year olds to meet and become a family, the girls find that even though resistant, they are alike than different and they actually do like each other Bett and Avery find that, even though they are nothing alike, they complement each other, and whether their fathers become a family or not, they have already done so flag 1 likeLike see review Oct 10, 2018 Elise rated it it was amazing I borrowed a copy of this book
