Title: Pictures 1918
Author: Jeanette Ingold
Genre: Historical/Realistic Fiction
Rating: Thumbs up, G
What I like: I enjoyed this book, I felt like I was watching a black and white movie, it was a slower paced book, but not in a bad way, just a way that was like real life, the way things happen, it had a really good sense for the time period.
Synopsis: Asia is heart broken when her baby rabbit is trapped inside the burning shed on the back side of the chicken coop. If only she had a picture to remember straw-bit the way he was and not the image in her mind of him jumping amidst the flames. When she sees an automatic camera in the window of a store in town she is determined to get it. Things are rapidly changing in her life, if only she could catch them and keep them how they are. Like her relationship with Nick, the beautiful trees, her Grandma, her summer trip to the river, she needs the pictures to remember, before everything is gone.
