Heaven is Paved with Oreos

 Heaven is Paved with Oreos 
Catherine Gilbert Murdock  
Boston:  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company, 2013, Ages 10-15

The young girl in the book had a best friend at school. She went and traveled a lot and wrote about it in her journal. She wrote a lot in her journal and enjoyed writing. She was an eight grader and seemed to be the typical eight grade girl. She enjoyed traveling and writing down what she saw. 

The author wrote in a format like most books, but also wrote in a journal style. She wrote how the girl would write in her journal. The journal writing format was interesting to read since it was different. The book was well written and had fitting language for the readers. The book had a good theme and was fun to read. 

 The illustrations were mostly in the journals. She would write about what she saw, but sometimes there would be pictures. The pictures tied in the story and the reader was able to see what she as talking about. The book was well put together and was interesting to read. The book had good pictures to demonstrate where she traveled.

I thought the book was interesting and it was nice to see pictures of other places in the world. It was interesting to see what the girl saw when she was traveling. I liked the theme of the book and wanted to know more about the places. I would recommend the book to anyone who likes to read. I would mostly recommend this book to middle school girls.
