Rating: 4 OUT OF 5 STARS 🌟🌟🌟🌟 DESCRIPTION:
Mischa “Ish” Love knows she’ll be one of the first settlers on Mars. She’s applied to – and been rejected from – the Mars Now project forty-seven times, but the mission won’t leave for ten years, and Ish hasn’t given up hope. She also hasn’t given up hope that Tig will be her best friend again. When Ish collapses on the first day of seventh grade, she gets a diagnosis that threatens all her future plans. As Ish fights cancer, she dreams in vivid detail about the Martian adventures she’s always known she’d have – and makes unexpected discoveries about love, fate, and her place in the world.
Most Middle-grade books, especially those targeted at female readers, seem to contain little more than what I call "fluff."
From their stereotypical pink covers to the oh so dreamy boy the main character has a crush on, Middle-Grade books for girls SUCK!!! I LOVE that LOVE, ISH is different from any other book targeted at Middle-grade readers.
The cover of this book is awesome. It shows off Ish's long red hair, and the artist's decision to have her standing on the globe of Earth and looking towards Mars is 100% perfection.
I was not as happy with the description on the back of the book as I was with it's cover. It does not really do this book justice, but I have the feeling that this was done on purpose to grab the interest of the target age group. Once they begin reading and are pulled into the story, they will realize that this book is unique. They will discover that even though there are some very serious issues discussed in this book, they will want to keep reading despite the fact that they will be learning increasing their knowledge of the world in the process.
