Bounce by Natasha Friend


Evyn Linney’s life is upended when her father announces he is getting married and moving their family from Maine to Boston. Used to always being the positive one, Evyn tries to bounce along with the changes. But a move, new school, and 5 new siblings is just too much for her this time. Everyone is changing and Evyn doesn’t know who to count on anymore.


Bounce is a quick and entertaining read with great characters. Evyn is a relatable character and her situation is shared by many kids. The book is a good look at the struggles of blended families as well as the trials of being a teenager. A great read on its own, but also good for kids facing a similar situation.
