“Once your words fly out of your mouth, you sometimes can’t control whether they fly straight or crooked, Grandma Augustine says. “They can get bent in the strangest ways.” Grandma Augustine says that the only way to straighten out bad words is to keep making good ones until you say what you need to say to who you need to say it to.”

― Lori Aurelia Williams, When Kambia Elaine Flew in from Neptune

In the novel  When Kambia Elaine Flew in from Neptune you’ll meet a twelve year old girl named Shayla who has a knack for reading and writing; you’ll also meet her family and a new girl who moves next door to Shalya and quickly becomes her best friend. You will see them go through all of their struggles and learn that many secrets are being kept in this tight knit community. I give the novel a 4 out of 5 review. It is a great story for young adults, keeps you engaged. The story is very sad but the author writes it beautifully to cover the blow of abuse and trauma in the story. Overall its a good book but you may shed a tear or two.
