Kate DiCamillo is one of my favorite children’s authors. She truly is an author that was born to write stories for children. It is through her words and her memorable characters that children everywhere are finding a love for reading.
After being introduced to the vibrant trio of three friends: Raymie, Louisiana, and Beverly, in Kate DiCamillo’s books, Raymie Nightingale and Louisiana’s Way Home, I was so ready and excited to see what this trio was up to in Kate DiCamillo's newest novel, Beverly, Right Here.
Beverly’s story is unlike Raymie’s and Louisiana's. The story opens up with Beverly running away and in a deep state of grieving the loss of her beloved dog, Buddie.
The death of Buddie has her in the deep stage of loneliness and she finds herself no longer needed or wanted at home with her alcoholic mother. She needs to get away, she needs to breathe, she needs to find a way to find comfort in her isolation.
As Beverly arrives in Tamaray Beach, she quickly finds herself a job busing tables at Mr. C’s and a place to live with an elderly woman named Iola Jenkins. Life continues by for Beverly has she settles into life in Tamaray Beach and becomes friends with those around her.
Little is Beverly aware, that her resolution to her grief and loneliness just may be standing right there in front of her.
I was so moved by the book, Beverly, Right Here. It was beautifully constructed and it is quickly getting the accolades it deserves.
I can only imagine that more accolades and high sales are in the future for this new Kate DiCamillo masterpiece when it releases to the public on September 24, 2019!
It is my top recommendation that parents and teachers grab these books and curl up next to those kids they love so much. Adults and kids of all ages will love Beverly just as much as they have grown to love Raymie and Louisiana.
