The Only Alex Addleston in all These Mountains

The Only Alex Addleston in All These Mountains - James Solheim, Jeffrey Ebbeler

Ok so I think I’m going to have to skip A Look and Learn book today. Unless it gets slow at work this afternoon. Instead, I’m going to review this Children’s book which I got from Netgalley for review.


Netgalley Review


5 Stars


First Impression:  Seems really cute. Art is really well done. Especially like the colors.


Plot/Storyline:  Incredibly cute story of two Alex Addelstons who become best friends.  Then they are forced to separate.  I know it’s a children’s book and I’m supposed to just go along with it, which I do and I love this book, but my one thing is, if they were best friends, why don’t they write letters still?  One of the Alex’s had moved to Kenya, but still, i’m pretty sure you could have phones or email or old fashioned mail in Kenya. Just saying.  


In any case, this book has a happy ending and is very very juicy.  I absolutely adored this book. I would get it for Owen but I think he’s still a bit young for it.  It’s so sweet and tender. Highly recommended.

Quotes:  “That evening, for the first time ever, two Alex Addelstons chased Flatt Mountain fireflies till their jars glowed and lit their grins like the moon”
