    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. In this book Mallory's parents decide to move to a town 2 hours away from her best friend. Mallory is postive she won't like that new town but...her parents are convinced she will like it, she just has to give it a try. So I think the message that the author is trying to get across your mind is always have an open mind 'cause you never know, you might like something.

    Mallory McDonald is eight years old and she is about to face a big new change in her life. Her parents have decided to move! Mallory is not ready for this big change, in fact she is very upset! Mallory does not want to leave her best friend Mary Ann behind. Before Mallory leaves for her new home, she makes Mary Ann a promise as a symbol of their friendship. A promise that Mallory swore she would never break. Mallory arrives at her new house and she is surprised to find that life isn't so bad. Sh Mallory McDonald is eight years old and she is about to face a big new change in her life. Her parents have decided to move! Mallory is not ready for this big change, in fact she is very upset! Mallory does not want to leave her best friend Mary Ann behind. Before Mallory leaves for her new home, she makes Mary Ann a promise as a symbol of their friendship. A promise that Mallory swore she would never break. Mallory arrives at her new house and she is surprised to find that life isn't so bad. She meets a boy named Joey and they become really good friends. Mallory has so much fun with joey that she forgets about her promise with Mary ann. When Mary Ann is supposed to come visit, Mallory becomes very nervous! She is afraid she will have to chose between her new friendship and her old friendship. Fortunately Mallory is able to come to terms with the changes in her life. She is able to identify that she is thankful for the friendship she had with Mary Ann but is ready to explore the many new friendships she has made. Mallory promises to never forget about Mary Ann, and that was a promise she knew she wouldn't break. I gave this book five stars because it was relatable, easy to read, and it included illustrations. Multiple students can relate to having to move at some point in their life. Its nice to have a book that explores the many feelings, emotions, and challenges that a child may be experiencing during a move. Additionally I enjoyed that the book was simple and easy to read. Its content makes this book great for readers who are transitioning into higher levels of reading such as chapter books. Lastly I enjoyed that the book included illustrations. I feel as though illustrations help spark readers imagination while reading a book.

    This is a great book for younger readers wanted something bigger. Readers will learn about the struggles and challenges that Mallory has to face when her parents decide to go through with their plans of moving to a new home. Mallory will miss her friends at home dearly but will gain new friendships in her new town. This book will keep young readers engaged and wanting to read more. For these reasons I am rating this book 4/5 stars.

    Great book about moving and all the hardships that go along with that for kids. Mallory is miserable that she has to move and leave her best friend, and they pinky promise to never be friends with boys who live next door. Of course, a boy lives next door to Mallory in their new town, and they become friends. Lots of great, relatable issues in this book that would work great for 2nd or 3rd grade.

    Moving is hard. I love books that kids can totally relate to. I will certainly read more Mallory. Wonderful read for a second grader. The Mallory books are 2.0 AR points. Great short audios. Your kid could finish them on a couple trips to and from town. Listening to this book in the car 🚗 together is great because it gives you several great family talking points.

    Miss 6 thought it was okay. She listened to the whole audiobook but it didn't interest her enough to try more of the series. Miss 6 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors. Miss 6 thought it was okay.

    My 7 year old daughter came home from school and excitingly exclaimed that she finished her chapter book at school. She said she loves this book and has already starting reading another one. She earned a 100% on the AR test too. She is currently reading Oh Boy Mallory.

    2.4 A have an awesome granddaughter named Mallory. I thought it was going to be a really cute read. True it is cute but I got annoyed with the narrator’s voice. So it was a disappointing audio performance for me. I sure the age appropriate audience will love it.

    This is the first in a cute little transitional series, similar to the Clementine or Ramona books. A step up from Owl Diaries or Magic Treehouse. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline was fun, if predictable.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I read this story when I was little and thought hey why not. I don’t remember Mallory being so mean or her and Max’s parents just letting him insult her all the time but overall it was really cute. When I was little this book made me want to move and make a bunch of friends

    This was good. I'm glad that she is finding friends at her new home and that her best best best friend is ok with it. It is hard to fit in when you are somewhere new, but if you just be yourself it will all work out. This was good.
