Book Review - Lety Out Loud

About the Book

Can Lety find her voice before it's too late?

Lety Muñoz's first language is Spanish, and she likes to take her time putting her words together. She loves volunteering at the Furry Friends Animal Shelter because the dogs and cats there don't care if she can't always find the right word.

When the shelter needs a volunteer to write animal profiles, Lety jumps at the chance. But grumpy classmate Hunter also wants to write profiles -- so now they have to work as a team. Hunter's not much of a team player, though. He devises a secret competition to decide who will be the official shelter scribe. Whoever helps get their animals adopted the fastest wins. The loser scoops dog food.

Lety reluctantly agrees, but she's worried that if the shelter finds out about the contest, they'll kick her out of the volunteer program. Then she'll never be able to adopt Spike, her favorite dog at the shelter!

My Take on the Book
My youngest daughter liked this book seeing that the main character was in the same grade as she was. While my daughter and Lety, the main character, do not have a lot in common she said that she still related to the character. She was also connected to the character because she loved animals like Lety did too. The book was a fun story that showed some competition between Lety and another character named Hunter to see who gets to create the write-ups for the animals at the shelter that she is at for the summer. The book is a bit of a coming of age story that shows Lets trying new things, challenging herself in many ways. This was a great book that I would recommend to all!
