To Night Owl From Dogfish
To Night Owl From Dogfish | Meg Wolitzer, Holly Goldberg Sloan
62 posts | 46 read | 61 to read
From two extraordinary authors comes a moving, exuberant, laugh-out-loud novel about friendship and family, told entirely in emails and letters. Avery Bloom, who's bookish, intense, and afraid of many things, particularly deep water, lives in New York City. Bett Devlin, who's fearless, outgoing, and loves all animals as well as the ocean, lives in California. What they have in common is that they are both twelve years old, and are both being raised by single, gay dads. When their dads fall in love, Bett and Avery are sent, against their will, to the same sleepaway camp. Their dads hope that they will find common ground and become friends--and possibly, one day, even sisters. But things soon go off the rails for the girls (and for their dads too), and they find themselves on a summer adventure that neither of them could have predicted. Now that they can't imagine life without each other, will the two girls (who sometimes call themselves Night Owl and Dogfish) figure out a way to be a family?

So I wrote a blog post about my favourite reads of 2019. I somehow whittled this list of 24 down to 5. Can you guess which made it? Might need to go over there to see. https://trishtalkstexts.wordpress.com/2019/12/21/best-books-2019/ uhm, spoiler I don‘t talk much about them, just about that they represent. Anyhoo, already reading 2020 books, so I might be calling it on 2019. #neversaynever

Second to last book in the Modern Mrs Darcy Summer Reading Guide (yes, I am little behind). This was ok, middle grade boos are not my thing, but it was alright.

Today‘s library haul. I‘m on maternity leave from my library so I actually visited our local library (my childhood library 🥰)!
My friend described the tagged book as similar to The Parent Trap (which I convinced my 4 year old to watch with me; both versions; thanks Disney+!) so I‘m excited to read it!

Posting a book that gave me all the emotions @ljuliel

Read this one earlier this year for #lmpbc and I felt all the things! Happy, sad, and everything in between. Written for middle graders, it‘s an epistolary novel that follows the friendship developing between two girls whose gay dads start dating and decide to send them to summer camp together. I laughed and I cried so hard... it is undoubtedly a must read for all ages. ❤️😭😍

ljuliel That sounds like such a neat idea for a book. I‘m glad you enjoyed it so much. 2mo
GlassAsDiamonds Ooohhh...!! I need a diverse MiddleGrade for Booked. Would this work do you think? 2mo
Bookzombie This sounds so good. Stacked! 2mo
MeganAnn @GlassAsDiamonds I think this could work for that prompt. Another one for that prompt my son and I read together and really enjoyed was 2mo
LibrarianRyan @GlassAsDiamonds Very much so. It also works for #SAGAapproved, and if you have a child who has to read a novel of letters then this does it (I can not spell that word today so I didn't even try.) 2mo

I absolutely loved To Night Owl from Dogfish, an epistolary, middle-grade novel from Holly Goldberg Sloan and Meg Wolitzer. Told entirely through emails and letters, the book is about the friendship between Averly and Bett. When their fathers' romance culminates in a plot to make the girls friends by sending them to the CIGI camp for the summer. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod When the girls uncover the plot, a flurry of emails begin, and the girls team up in an attempt to defy their fathers' plans. The unexpected, of course, ensues. Sloan and Wolitzer broaden the girls' correspondence with accents from their dads, Bett's grandma Gaga, Avery's biological mother, and a sprinkling of other characters. ⬇️ 4mo
UnabridgedPod We come to understand Avery's anxiety, Bett's commitment to adventure, and the ways that relationships can rise and fall. Gorgeous, resonant, and emotional novel. 4mo

I loved this middle grade summer camp novel, told in emails and letters between two very different girls. Avery and Bett are thrown together when their dads, who are dating, send them off (unwillingly) to the same camp. Other voices chime in throughout the novel, and the full cast recording was fantastic. It‘s a sweet update on a Parent Trap-type story, and I was rooting for everyone to find their happy ending.

This last book from our #lmpbc group was also sent out. While I loved all four books the group chose, this one was hands down my absolute favorite! The story is told through emails and letters, mostly between Avery and Bett with a few from the grown-ups in their lives. I laughed, I cried, I finished it in less than 24 hours as I literally could not put it down (thank goodness it was a weekend so I could shirk all other duties to read this). ❤️😆😭

This was an impulse grab from the library because of Meg Wolitzer ( I loved The Interestings) and it‘s epistolary and the 2 letter writers are going/at camp so a perfect summer read. It is such a great book. The girls are perfect, smart, flawed, funny. There are events you see coming and you just want to close your eyes but others that you don‘t and leave you stunned. I cried at the end. How‘s that for a Young Reader ❤️

I did not expect to love this as much as I did. I thought it was a great modern take on The Parent Trap. I almost wouldn‘t recommend the audio because for the first two hours, the characters respond to the same e-mail chain and if I have to hear the phrase re re re re re: You don‘t know me again, I might lose it. But besides that, the cast for the audiobook did a great job and really brought the characters to life. #diversemiddlegrade #booked2019

Cinfhen Fabulous review!!! And the idea of a modern day ParentTrap is very intriguing 7mo

I love Meg Wolitzer, so I was psyched to read this middle-grade, epistolary novel co-written by her & Holly Sloan. A few pages in, I became worried that the authors captured the authentic voices of two 12-year-old girls TOO WELL. I was a little annoyed by them, tbh. But soon enough I was charmed by Bet, Avery & their assorted cast of grown-ups. Each character has so much heart, & they work so hard both to protect their hearts & open them up. 👇🏻

monalyisha 1/1: I think the narrative captures the utter normalcy & specific challenges of growing up with gay parents/single parents. Wolitzer & Goldberg-Sloan explore issues such as: racism, classism, homophobia, & menstruation in a completely age-appropriate way. The tone is serious when it needs to be, & so quirky & funny when it doesn‘t. I‘ll be recommending this to the 5th & 6th grade students/patrons at my library, for sure. (edited) 8mo

Holly Goldberg Sloan and Meg Wolitzer‘s middle grade humorous contemporary novel (for children aged 9+) is an LGBTQ+ friendly take on THE PARENT TRAP. I very much enjoyed the epistolary format as the girls exchange emails and try to come up with a plan to fix their problem and while some of the plot twists are obvious, others come out from left field so that you‘re left with a charming, funny read with good diversity.

“You don‘t know me, but I‘m writing you anyway.”

When Bett Devlin reaches out to Avery Allenberry Bloom to explain that their dads are in love - she has no desire to be friends. Definitely not sisters.

And this starts the most diverse, gorgeous, laugh out loud middle grade novel I‘ve ever read.

Using this one for #booked2019 #diversemiddlegrade

If you‘re think about reading this - what are you waiting for?

All the stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

LOVED this middle grade book that has a parent trap vibe! This entire book is told through emails and letters mostly between Bett and Avery, 12 year old girls. They have such refreshing and lively personalities that you see through their descriptions of the world around them. Their dads (who fall in love) want them to be friends but there are many twists, turns, and growing up along the way. Everyone should have a Night Owl to their Dogfish. 🦉🐬

Epistolary middle grade/ya novel told through emails. The main characters are two 12 yo girls whose Dads are dating but don't be thinking it's going to be like a Jacqueline Wilson book. It's diverse without it being a big deal and could be enjoyed by all genders and ages. I really liked it; it's very well done.

Epistolary exchanges between two 12-year-old girls on opposite sides of the USA, getting to know each other because their gay fathers have fallen in love. Summer camp mayhem. Tweens meddling in adult affairs. Human fears & foibles. #Audiobook narrated mostly by Imani Parks & Cassandra Morris, for the 2 main characters, plus a full cast for various other missives.
