Louisiana’s Way Home, is a book about discovering who you are and deciding who you want to be. The story is about a girl called Louisiana leaving her home state, Florida, with her granny because of a curse. Louisiana and her granny leave for Georgia suddenly in the middle of the night without any money or plans. When they reach Georgia they go to the ‘Good Night, Sleep Tight Motel’ but have barely any money to pay for a night. Will Louisiana ever find her way home?

I believe that this book is a mystery and action book as it involves lots of action and suspense. I would recommend it to ages 10 and over. The book includes some complex words and is written like a diary, meaning that you need to pay close attention to what the author is conveying. Overall I really enjoyed reading this book and I would rate it an eight out of ten.

Riddhi, age 10
