[military romance Books] PDF Ruby and Olivia BY Rachel Hawkins
I enjoyed reading Ruby Olivia It was a fun cute and "delightful middle rade read with a spooky edge and an interesting mystery that Ruby Olivia have to try to solve at "middle Blindsided grade read with a spooky edge and an interesting mystery that Ruby Olivia have to try to solve at Oak House Live Oak House is rud to be a haunted mansion and that s exactly where Ruby and Olivia end up doing community service during the summer after each of themets into trouble only Olivia is completely innocent taking the blame for something her twin sister Emma does just so Emma can o to a fun summer camp Talk about loyalty Ruby Olivia aren t considered friends in the beginning of the book as Olivia and Emma had a falling out with Ruby previously So there is immediate tension between the irls as they start Camp Chrysalis to catalog creepy items at Live Oak House These On the Run girls have to learn to work together and develop a comradery despite their differences Mysterious and spooky things start too on in the house and this becomes the The Price Of Blood (Phil Broker, glue that binds theseirls into an otherwise unlikely friendship in order to solve the mystery of Live Oak HouseI liked how Ruby Olivia eventually bonded at Camp Chrysalis and how their relationship strengthened authentically towards the end Each of them also had to resolve issues in their own lives and learn how to deal with people in a way that was authentic to who they really were But Russian Winter growth was definitely observed in each of their personalities Spunky brave and outspoken Ruby softens a bit and learns to have some boundaries while Olivia learns to speak up about how she truly feels about things Each of theseirls take something important away from Camp Chrysalis So that was a Meg and the Mystery in Williamsburg (Meg Duncan, good thing And an added bonus is that they had fun at Camp Chrysalis than they thought they would have Who knew doing community service could turn into funIt was so much fun reading about Ruby Olivia s investigative activities thoughts and paranormal sleuthing when it came to the strange activityoing on at Live Oak House I really wanted them to figure out what was behind it all At some points you can t help but laugh at their antics in an enjoyable way And the length these Pregnant Man girlso to is incredibly honorable even at the scariest of times at Live Oak House Definitely impressive for young irls It was also refreshing that the story is told in alternating points of view by Ruby Olivia so you really et an in depth look at what each of the Kawaii Manga girls are thinking and feelingOlivia s twin Emma isn t a central role in this story only mentioned sporadically so I wish Emma was integrated into the story I felt that being a twin myself Olivia would have wanted to talk to Emma while she was away and she would have wanted to tell her all about the creepiness of Live Oak House and maybe ask for her help on what to do But the author does aood job of explaining away why this doesn t happen often even when some attempts to make contact are made but are not followed though But I truly believe Emma being away at camp to create an intentional distance between the twins was an essential part of the plot It was necessary in order for Olivia to become independent from her sister develop her own "IDENTITY AND GROW AS A PERSON "and row as a person also liked how loyal Olivia was to Emma but I wish the opposite was true as well Too bad the loyalty had to be under these circumstances of being punished during the summer Hawkins did a ood job of describing the dynamics of twin relationships and how they feel I could definitely relate especially when I was Olivia and Emma s ageI liked the integration of the history of Live Oak House into the story I love learning about history especially if it pertains to a house that is considered haunted Rachel Hawkins made this history lesson fun and interesting for kids so they will want to be immersed in it Also the initial owner of the house Felix Wrexhall and his son Mr Matthews were well known in the town due to happenings at Live Oak House so this added to the drama for the kids in terms of the spook factorThe ending felt a bit rushed and not as thoroughly developed as I would have liked I wasn t completely satisfied with how the mechanics of the ending happened or the explanation of things and I was left with some uestions at the end But I did like the final outcome of the story And I liked the overall message of the story Ruby Olivia was full of self discovery sisterhood friendship second chances and the importance of learning from your mistakes We can all learn something from Ruby and Olivia It was a highly entertaining read and I am sure not only middle The Accursed grade kids and young adults will devour this book but so will adults who are kids at heart I enthusiastically recommend reading this book I read Hex Hall years ago and remember liking it and I m not sure why I haven t picked up another Rachel Hawkins book I am SOlad I read this one First Hawkins nails how kids speak I swear it sounded like my teenager was narrating this in my head Second the story is cool and moves along at a ood clip This was FUN It was a ood A spooky middle rade story that's full of fun friendship and humor perfect for fans of Ingrid Law and Lisa GraffRuby is best friends with Emma but she and Emma's twin sister Olivia are definitely not friends Unfortunately Emma will be away for the summer while Ruby and Olivia are oing to be stuck at a community service day camp for troublemakers together To kick off the spirit. ,

Bourdieus Secret Admirer in the Caucasus girls Ruby and Olivia become unlikely friends as supernatural and spooky things begin to happen to the campers They begin to investigate the house in order to figure out what s happening and when they begin to find clues to the answer who knows what will happen I was so excited to receive this book for review I m such a sucker for twin books and the fact that it had a spooky element to it really reeled me in I really enjoyed those aspects as well however I do not think they were incorporated as well as they could have been I feel like the characters could have been a bit dynamic and their relationships could have been realistic The relationships in this book felt like plot devices rather than something that should have been a concrete part of the book The plot could have been fleshed out as well I think that Rachel Hawkins has a really sweet base to an even spookier story However this is an adorable middlerade novel I really did enjoy the characters and I really enjoyed the premise of the plot I really enjoyed the spooky bits of this book but I really didn t think that they were fleshed out enough to actually be spooky There just wasn t enough happening for it to be legitimately spooky Granted it s a middle Something in Return grade book but I know plenty of kids in the ageroup that would like to Byzantium get scared pantsless I really didn t think that the sister relationship between Emma and Olivia was resolved either I just felt like it was resolved too uickly and too efficiently There wasn t nearly enough said to resolve their issues I also don t like how the drama between Olivia and Ruby was resolved It was too convenient and too uick I just felt like the characters were two dimensional and static I wish there had been development I really loved how Ruby and Olivia s friendship developed I think that their friendship is really interesting and as theyrow closer they ll become really Contacts Desired good for each other I love how Ruby helped Oliviarow as a sister and I love how Olivia helped Ruby communicate and express herself This book perfectly showed what it s like to be in the awkward middle school age These Notorious Pleasures (Maiden Lane, girls were super cute I d love to read about them For what this book is and for the ageroup that it is marketed for I think this is a cute book I think that it is thoroughly entertaining I would have loved to read this ten years ago This would have been one of my favorite books I m sure As a twenty year old it just wasn t all for me My sister Bailey will love this book though I can t wait to show her it She loves Liesel and Po by Lauren Oliver and this The Oracles Golem (The Oracle gives me some spooky vibes so she will definitely love this one My

and steals lipstick and Olivia takes the blame Ruby did a prank at a different school where she did. 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 The Solitary Self girls want to do but the stuff is actually pretty cool There's everything from mink stoles toolf clubs.
