Ruby was a fun character while Olivia is like most middle school students The ghost story was fairly decent as well Weaknesses The pacing on this was problematic for me I wasn t sure that it was a ghost story for the first hundred pages the next hundred pages the girls slowly unraveled the mystery and it wasn t until the last fifty pages that all of the scary ghost things happened What I eally think Do I put creepy dolls in strengths or weaknesses Just depends where you stand Creepy dolls don t do as well in my library as I think they should but this author s books usually do well Love the cover but Secrets of Goldenrod which is somewhat similar hasn t checked out much Putting on that end of year if I have money list Ruby and Olivia is a book about two girls an unlikely friendship and a house that is haunted per sayI personally eally liked the book as it was written in the two girls perspectives every chapter and that made it interesting to ead It would go from Olivias perspective on a situation to Rubys thoughts afterduring the situationThe ending was the best part in my opinion because I didn t expect the twins to be behind all of the haunting The concept of the tree being the mastermind behind all of the creepy bone chilling noisesthings was a very smart idea Who would ve guessed that Definitely not meThe scenechapter where they discovered the truth about everything made me feel very tense It was super intense and I was elieved when they made it out of the basementI also liked this book because it included things about a normal teenage life Friend problems boy problems going out for frozen yogurt etc It made the story feel whole as if it wasn t only about the terrors of the house I especially liked the odd friendship being created between Ruby and Olivia because their past friendship situation eally interfered with them They overcame it anyways and they both end up being friends in the endI wanted to touch on the fact that they were sent to a camp for bad kids I think it wasn t eally needed but it did help the storyline I think they could ve gone to a normal summer camp where you go and fixhelp the community though it is good either way1 Describe a character or setting in this book that you found interesting and explain why2 A memorable uote from this book and why you liked it3 Something new you learned or thought deeplydifferently about from eading this book 1A Olivia is uite a eserved shy person She allows people to take advantage of her so they don t take the blame for example the entire eason she got sent to camp chrysalis is because she took the blame of stealing a lipstick even though it was her twin sister who stole it I find her interesting because she s a lot like me and I think she deserves better than how she gets treated2A None of this was actually my fault It is the first line of the book that Olivia says and I think it says a lot going Of service the campers are outfitted with bright pink polka dotted t shirts with smiley faces on the front then tasked with cataloging the contents of an abandoned mansion Sorting through objects in an old house sounds boring and working with each other is that last thing the girls want to do but the stuff is actually pretty cool There's everything from mink stoles to golf clubs.

Ack to the idea of her taking the blame it seems like she hates covering for her sister but does it anyways But if she never actually covered for her sister if she never said she stole the lipstick then the plot of the story would be changed completely Olivia would ve never become close friends with Ruby and they d never discover the dark secrets of the home they e enovating They wouldn t undercover the truth about the history of the house and who knows what would happen if they never did Would some horrible event occur causing deaths Would the other kids of camp chrysalis discover the trees secrets 3A I think something I learned from this book is that you shouldn t hold grudges against people if you don t know the full story And how even if you had a fight with your friend or if something went wrong in your friendship you shouldn t throw the entire thing away Don t forget everything you had with your friend just because they liked the same you you did or if they told you something they did behind your back Instead talk and work through it and try to understand what actually happened This was so cute and so fun I loved Ruby and Olivia Ruby eminded me a lot of Rachel Hawkins honestly It was just creepy enough to keep me thoroughly invested without being TOO creepy for me to handle I had a hard time putting it down and ead it all in one day It was just what I needed My Rating 5 starsReview on my sister s blog eviewHey guysToday Bailey and I are bringing you an amazing A eview for Rachel Hawkin s Ruby and Olivia Back in late October I ecieved an ARC for Ruby and Olivia and I eviewed it It wasn t one of my absolute favorite middle grade novels and Bee wanted to ead it so I just gave her the ARC In the past few weeks Bailey has ead and eread this bookshe loves itso we had to eview it I hope you love this eview We worked eally hard to make this great and I m so proud of how far she s come EnjoyMy Review of RO click here What is Ruby Olivia about Can you summarize it a bitA It s about these kids who go to a mansion because Olivia s sister Emma is shoplifting and steals lipstick and Olivia takes the blame Ruby did a prank at a different school where she did something with glitter in the hallways so both of them are sent to Camp Chrysalis They are sent to the Live Oak House mansion to clean up and they went to creepy ooms and creepy things kept happening like a kid got bit by the house The eason that it s called the Live Oak House is because the house is built around a live tree The tree actually almost killed Ruby and Olivia because it was kind of possessed by the spirits of Mr Rexhall s dead twin sisters What would you ate this book WhyA 5 stars It s a good book I like how it has an actual plot and the characters are cool I like how it s a mysterylike one of the kids hands gets bit and it was the end of the chapterI was like holds up hands in awe woah To stuffed deer heads and wait is that stuffed deer head watching them When the taps un freezing cold and doors slam inexplicably Ruby and Olivia wonder if the other campers are having a bit of fun or if the abandoned mansion is looking for new esidents To solve the mystery Ruby and Olivia will have to put their grudges aside and figure out how to be a team with or without Emma.
