book review: Jacob Have I Loved (Katherine Paterson)

That’s another list I have to make – a list of all Newbery award winners to read … which was one of the reasons I read this book (1981 winner). The other was that it’s about twin sisters. Sounds applicable and interesting! Except …

Right, I just found the main character sooo bitter and depressed (and depressing). I just didn’t want to hear another complaint out of her, about how wonderful her sister was, and how awful she was. Ever think it’s your attitude, honey? What a downer. Anyway, hope neither of my twins ends up feeling bitter or that she is anything less than her sister. Well, that would be hard, because both of mine are just totally perfect, heh heh.

  1. ooooh I remember reading this as a (pre?) teen…I don’t remember much about it, but I remember the name, so it must have made a bit of an impression on me. I’ll have to go back now that you’ve said it’s about twins (in all my spare time).
