Diane ManuMozambiqueAge: Under 18Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great StoryJanuary 3, 2013Diane ManuMozambiqueAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I thouroughly enjoyed this book because I am really interested in travelling the world. Notes from a spinning planet: Ireland really painted a beautiful picture of the country and made me feel like I was almost there myself. I was however disappointed because when I read the description it made it sound like there was a great climax, but instead I felt like it just came over a little hill and not a big mountain, the way it was described. Other than the slightly boring story plot, like I said, the descriptions of nature and of the people make it a really worthwhile read if you are into those kinds of things.

The story is wholesome and almost begs one to read the next because there surely will be more of this story. It also helps relate to the problems of Ireland on a more personal level.
CMR3 Stars Out Of 5September 24, 2009CMRDefinitely NOT one of my favorites. Lacked suspense and adventure. It seemed that they mostly talked and ate. There were a few funny lines, but other than that, not a great book. I too didn't like that Maddie does try drinking, even if she didn't like it.
Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5February 6, 2009Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: femaleFarm girl Maddie Chase has never gone anywhere. Thats why she jumps at the chance to travel to Ireland with her aunt Sid and Aunt Sids godson, Ryan. Aunt Sid worked at the peace camps in Ireland back when she was in college and is working on an article about where some of those kids she counseled years ago are today. Ryans motherAunt Sids best friendrecently passed away. Ryans father was from Ireland and hes hoping to piece together some clues to his past. Maddie helps her new friend look into the IRA car bomb that killed his dad. This was a fun book. I liked the idea of traveling to a new place only to find out how truly small our world is. Maddie and Ryan find his distant relatives, and Maddie stumbles onto a secret about Aunt Sids past. The mystery of it was exciting, the history and current issues with the IRA was fascinating, and the characters were fun. Maddie also comes to discover that sometimes Christians judge people without even realizing thats what theyre doing. I highly recommend this book.
