review Finding Orion

Finding Orion Free read Ä 5 ☆ Rion Kwirk comes from a rather odd family His mother named him and his sisters after her favorite constellations and his father makes funky flavored jelly beans for a living One sister acts as if she’s always onstage and the other is a walking dictionary But no one in the family is odd than Rion’s grandfather Papa KwirPapa Kwirk He’s the kind of guy who shows up on his motorcycle only on holidays handing out crossbows and stuffed suirrels as presents Rion has always been fascinated by Papa Kwirk especially since his son Rion’s father is the complete opposite Where Dad is predictable nerdy and reassuringly boring Papa Kwir. I am a little conflicted as to whether this deserves four stars It has definite weaknesses that I alluded to in my while reading commentary weaknesses in characterization and use of too common kids lit tropes In my commentary I mentioned Coyote Sunrise Like that book I think this one is emotionally manipulative I gave Coyote three stars and I also gave three stars to The Parker Inheritance to which this also has some similarities So I suspect objectively this should be three stars as maybe I would be hard pressed to show how this is better than those two books Unlike those books though having just finished it there are definitely multiple spots I want to go right back to and re experience So I think its high points are higher and I think it gets much better in the second half My wanting to relive the best parts of this book is what gets the extra star from me

Finding Orion by andersonauthor is HILARIOUS and full of heart I was so charmed by this book and Rion’s voice This is one of those books that I’ll hand to certain kids and say “oh you have to read this one Just trust me” It’s a bit hard to describe without giving things away but it involves a dead grandfather his FUN eral complete with a marching band and a ridiculous scavenger hunt that brings a family together Amazing

Finding OrionRion Kwirk comes from a rather odd family His mother named him and his sisters after her favorite constellations and his father makes funky flavored jelly beans for a living One sister acts as if she’s always onstage and the other is a walking dictionary But no one in the family is odd than Rion’s grandfather. I'm sure Anderson has flaws as a writer but I wouldn't be one to point them out because I've thoroughly enjoyed everything I've read by him In my opinion he's as polished and as close to a sure thing as there is in middle grade fiction Maybe all his characters tend to sound similar in my head all TopherBrandSteveFrost ish but that may also be because I've listed to the last three as Audible Audio books and the narrators have all sounded similarThis one reminds me of Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass which is a personal favorite Yes it's a dead parentgrandparent book which seems to be a popular topictrend in middle grade fiction lately but it feels fresh and different in Anderson's hands There were reveals here that I genuinely did not see coming and the parts of this book that needed to work worked very VERY well the FUNeral the bar the reading of the will and Aunt Gertie's jelly bean conversation in the end I'm not sure the book needed the jelly bean recipe side plot but it wasn't hurt by it eitherI loved this One of my favorites of 2019 Can't wait for Anderson's next
