Loved, loved this book! I laughed out loud so many times and there were some sweet moments too.  I love how flawed and strong Louisa is in this story and I hope there will be more of her story to tell.

The uplifting and unforgettable true story of a US Marine, the stray dog he met on an Afghan battlefield, and how they saved each other and now travel America together, “spreading the message of stubborn positivity.” A poignant and inspiring tale of hope, resilience, and optimism, with a timeless message at its heart—”it is not what happens to us that matters, but how we respond to it.”

I adored this middle grade book about two kids, Josie and Alec, who live in the same house but 100 years apart.  The author does an excellent job showing how a teen from 2015 would try to explain the future to another teen in 1915 and vice versa.  I loved the way they were able to communicate and how Alec would find letters and other messages from Josie hidden in the house.  This books does have a happy ending but not in the way you would think.  Wanting to know if Josie and Alec get to meet in some sort of time and space plot twist, is what kept me reading. Also,I highly recommend this fun and heart filled book.  It releases in May.
