Review by Abigail Cooper.
Half A Chance is an amazing book by an amazing author, Cynthia Lord. Reading this book was enjoyable because it was so descriptive and had beautiful details and setting. Lucy is a rising sixth grade girl who has just moved to New Hampshire where she now lives in a little red house by a beautiful lake. Lucy loves photography so she loves to take pictures, especially nature shots, at her new home.
If you like reading about photography, friends, family and nature or realistic fiction you will love this too.
