Momentous Events in the Life of a Cactus ✓ “High School Two words that struck fear into the heart of every armless middle schooler I knew Which was me And like two people online”  The seuel to the critically acclaimed Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus follows Aven Green free review copy via kidlitexchange I LOVED getting to go back into Aven's world and see how all of her friendships and other relationships evolved over time Bowling expertly transitioned from a book ABOUT Aven's being differently abled Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus to a book about a teen girl's who happens to have no arms trials and tribulations Mind you this is a very important distinction as it takes us from and issue book to a non issue book I loved that evolution of Aven's story Overall I raced through the story and loved the depth and breadth of the characters and setting I'll definitely be buying this for my elementary and middle school librariesPK 12 Librarian note Momentous Events in the Life of a Cactus is set during Aven's first year of high school and while this makes sense given Aven's age in Insignificant I personally and professionally think the entire series could have been set much younger given how young it reads If Insignificant were set in 5th or 6th grade then Momentous could have been set in Aven's first year of middle school which would have read age appropriate Does the age really make a difference in the uality of the novel? Nope not really and elementary and early middle school readers won't care However my recommended age for this series is grades 3 6 don't be misguided by the age of the characters into thinking this is anywhere close to mature middle grade or YA Reader Ð Momentous Events in the Life of a Cactus ↠ Dusti Bowling
