RJF ~ The Facts and Fictions of Minna Pratt

For our next Recommend June Fest post, I have an adorable book by Patricia MacLachlan. I have always liked how she uses words, and this book has music in it, so that makes it even better.

The Facts and Fictions of Minna Pratt

About the book:

Minna wishes for many things. She wishes she understood the quote taped above her mother's typewriter: "Fact and fiction are different truths," She wishes her mother would stop writing long enough to really listen to her. She wishes her house were peaceful and orderly like her friend Lucas's. Most of all, she wishes she could find a vibrato on her cello and play Mozart the way he deserves to be played.Minna soon discovers that some things can't be found-they just have to "happen," And as she waits for her vibrato to happen, Minna begins to understand some facts and fictions about herself.

  1. I haven't read this book, but I do love the 'Sarah, Plain and Tall' books by Ms. MacLachlan. I'll have to look this one up!! :)

    1. I love all of the Sarah, Plain and Tall books!!!!! Yes, please do! :)

  2. Same as Faith said, I haven't read The Facts and Fictions of Minna Pratt; but 'Sarah, Plain and Tall' is a favourite of mine! :D

    This book sounds really interesting though, I'll have to look it up! (which, I realize, is what I've been saying for almost all the books you've reviewed :P)

    1. I think I've read basically all her books, and this one is one of her best.

      Well, keep looking them up! ;)


I love hearing from my readers! Comment away, but please keep it clean. ;)
