To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was reading this book and enjoying it until the teacher character instructs her students to imagine themselves strapped to the Space Shuttle Challenger getting ready to launch.... from Houston, Texas. Ugh, no please.
I think this story was a clever concept, but I did not enjoy reading it as much as the other 2021 Newbery books. There were attempts at detailing the misogyny vs feminism of the time period that I wish had either had greater attention placed on them or had been taken out of the book because it came off as a quick throw -in instead of thoughtful.
