Happy Thursday! Last week I gave my tween the day off, but she’s here today to share her thoughts on the book With a Name Like Love. I honestly, wish I would have read the book myself; you’ll see why. I’m going to go ahead and let her fill you in….
Hello everyone! I’m happy to be back this week and share my thoughts on With a Name Like Love. This book was such a surprise for me, I truly enjoyed it.
Olivene “Ollie” Love, the oldest daughter of the Reverend Everlasting Love, is looking for a taste of the real world. Ollie’s whole life was always on the road with her family, while her father preached throughout the South. Ollie’s family decides to stop in Binder, Arkansas for a routine preaching, this is when things change for Ollie. While passing out flyers for the townspeople to come see her father preach, she meets a peculiar boy. Ollie and her family soon learn the peculiar boy is Jimmy Koppel, son of Henry and Virginia Koppel. Henry Koppel, was a drunken-no-good-man. Henry would beat his wife Virginia and was terrible to Jimmy. Henry would torture Jimmy’s frogs, he would put out his cigarettes on the frogs! One day Jimmy had enough and ran into town, when he returned home the police had his mother in cuffs. Jimmy’s mother confesses that she killed Henry Koppel. When Ollie and her family learn about Jimmy’s mother’s story, they do not believe it. Together Ollie and Jimmy find out the real story behind Henry’s death.
Let me just say this book is AWESOME!!! When I first checked this book out at the library I thought it was going to be a boring love story. Boy was I wrong!!! This book is filled with excitement, there are plenty of twists and turns along the way. This book is definitely a MUST READ.
Enjoy your summer reading 🙂
