Livvie Owen Lived Here

Livvie Owen Lived Here
By Sarah Dooley
Feiwel and Friends, 2010. 229 pgs. Young Adult

Fourteen-year-old Livvie Owen, who has autism, and her family have been forced to move frequently because of her outbursts, but when they face eviction again, Livvie is convinced she has a way to get back to a house where they were all happy, once.

I liked the voice of this book and how the interactions between Livvie and her family were portrayed. I felt like the flap of the book was a bit misleading in that it says that the house Livvie’s family used to live in burned down at her hand. However, the novel never explicitly states this; I suppose the reader is to infer this fact from the matches on the cover. Overall a good book though.
