Teen Book Review-How I Saved My Father’s Life

on August 10, 2011

How I Saved My Father’s Life (And Ruined Everything Else) by Ann Hood

In the story, Ann Hood tells about a religious girl named Madeline who saved her father’s life by praying for him when he got caught in an avalanche. Even after she saved him though, he left their family for Ava Pomme. Madeline, her brother and her mother leave to go to Italy where she has to stay with her father, stepmother and their baby for part of the trip.

Madeline discovers that she loves her mother NOT Ava because Ava didn’t show any care for anything Madeline did or said, even though Ava herself is pretty and stylish.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes to read realistic fiction. It really showed how even though things are bad, it doesn’t mean they can’t get better.
