yet, but that s been on a lot of minds anyway Discomfort There s been a lot of talk about it lately, particularly in terms of the value of uncomfortable valuable conversations I am, personally, a person who tends to avoid discomfort at all costs, and my privilege is that I can too often do so Only because I live in this age and this era of America can I see where avoiding the messiness of living in this world is potentially dangerous, not to mention irresponsible So, to the year 2019, I hand this middle grade novel In Eventown by Corey Ann Haydu, you ll find a marvelous defense of messiness, mistakes, and uncomfortable conversations We all want to run away from our problems, but it s like that old phrase says Be careful what you wish for It happened in the past It hurt Now Elodee s family is in pain Her father, her mother, her twin sister Naomi, and Elodee herself all feel burdened by something that they can t even talk about any So when Elodee and Naomi s mom gets a job working for the village of Eventown, they simply cannot believe their luck Eventown s the kind of place where you can get a fresh start It s where the neighbors all get together to make you a recipe box of delicious things you couldn t burn or ruin if you tried Where the kids in school never tease you Where the sunsets are miraculous and the stars, if it s at all possible, shine brighter than anywhere you ve ever been At first Elodee is swept up in the joy of living in such a place, but as time goes on she begins to see oddities Why does her yard have weeds when no one else s does Why do the other kids act so aghast when she tries a different s s recipe And why, oh why, can t Elodee just give in to the place and be happy here It takes a lot to live in Eventown, so what Elodee needs to determine is whether or not it s worth it in the end Childhood utopias automatically come outfitted with built in weirdness It s part of the deal Hogwarts had a snake in the basement Willy Wonka s chocolate factory had a peculiar tendency to knock off small visitors You get the drift These locations have a natural fantasy component that taps into a child s ultimate desire magic, chocolate, etc Less common is the idea of a perfect town Even so, it s there When I was a kid I d write short stories about a little town where I could make up all the families and characters There was a comfort to it Think of what Harriet M Welch is doing in at the beginning of Harriet the Spy And I think Haydu s being very clever with this book because what s truly fearful about Eventown is its seductiveness Remember that line in the musical Into the Woods that Little Red Riding Hood sings about the wolf Nice is different than good Going to Eventown is like a crash course in nice vs good And the problem with nice, as a whole bunch of us know, is that it can be weaponized in the fight against truth Reading the book I was intrigued by how the creepy elements of the tale sneak in at a glacial rate So much so that I found myself silently chanting, Come on other shoe drop, man, drop Drop, man, drop Drop it does, but in slow motion Need a novel for 9 12 year olds that epitomizes the very definition of foreshadowing Meet my little friend here It knows that some of the most effective horror comes from the people we love the most Elodee s whole family has drunk the Eventown Kool Aid without so much as a blink, but she doesn t see that for a long time Instead, she has to encounter what I consider one of the most frightening concepts of all time Loving, patient kindness combined with insane actions, resulting in the kind of villainy I ve never really seen in a children s book before The adults in this town aren t passive aggressive so much as they re completely dedicated to horrible inanities Let s put it this way You can t help but like a book where the foreshadowing centers around a town s lack of library Or, even better, the horror of what it becomes Honestly, not since The Great Gatsby has a library been as much of a lie as the one found here What happens to the town library will strike many kids as an unspeakable crime It s a very clever means of turning kids against the notion of comfort and stability at any cost.As I read, I kept finding natural connections to this book Certainly in terms of cinema this book is pure Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind meets Pleasantville In terms of children s books the tie in is Orphan Island on that later I was even reminded of that moment in A Wrinkle in Time where Meg confronts It and must parse the difference between equal and the same But when I really sat down and thought about it, the best equivalent to this, in a lot of ways, is Aldous Huxley s, Brave New World It might as well be Elodee saying I d rather be myself Myself and nasty Not somebody else, however jolly Or, If one s different, one s bound to be lonely And, ultimately, the perfect quote for it all Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery And, of course, stability isn t nearly so spectacular as instability And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt Happiness is never grand Huxley said it first, but it s nice to have something on a younger level for the kids Eventown is the perfect gateway drug for Brave New World later on I mean, this might be an out there idea, but is it possible that this book is a metaphor for what it feels like to have depression Elodee is constantly having to defend herself against the accusation of not trying to be happy Her sister says, You re making something easy so hard Here s how Elodee thinks of it instead, There s a grip in my heart, and Naomi s right here but she feels a million miles away, on a whole other planet, and she gets to be there with Mom and Dad and I m stuck here, on my weird little planet all alone I want to explain all of that to her, but every time I try to explain what is making me feel unsettled or weird, all I do is get further and further away When her sister tries to cheer her up with guilt, which in my experience always works so very very well it says, I try to make Naomi grinning at me enough to make me grin too I am trying so, so hard All throughout the book Elodee has to deal with a world where she feels like she s the only one who has to try this hard It s a deeply lonely experience, and I couldn t help but think of people with depression who have to deal with concerned friends and family members who say unhelpful things like, Why don t you just get over yourself and Why don t you want to be happy Like Elodee says, they try so, so hard, but often that s not the issue The real issue is deep and buried In the case of this book, literally so Again, the book that I kept thinking about the most as I read this was Orphan Island by Laurel Snyder In both cases you have a mysterious location, otherworldly occurrences, and a girl on the cusp of teenagerhood with whom the world does not sit well Both live in kinds of utopias There the similarities stop, though In Orphan Island things start to go wrong because the heroine questions the way things are, and that s a bad thing In Eventown things start to go wrong because the heroine questions the way things are, and that s a good thing In both books she dares to question the world In only one book does that choice go well Why do these books ring oddly true with kids Because in the real world, adults withhold pertinent information from their children all the time This is not necessarily a bad thing since there are many things in this world that kids just aren t ready to know I guess the root of it is, to a certain extent, intent Are you keeping kids in the dark because it protects them or because it protects you I wouldn t think of this, any of this if it weren t for Haydu putting it all together so well There s a patience to her writing She must have had so much fun thinking up exactly how much fun to make Eventown The different flavors of ice cream, the delicious green strawberries, the waterfalls, the gigantic blueberries, the butterfly house, the copper cooking equipment, all of it Her book burns slow, but once things start getting weird it speeds up considerably, like weeds spreading in the night I liked a lot of how she chose to phrase things, like when Elodee thinks of herself as, a tiny, cozy, ball of limbs Or when the dad says, Love has a lot to do with imperfections, which may as well be the theme of the book itself The only part of the book that didn t quite gel with me came at the end I liked where the book went, but and this is a funny thing to say it felt too tidy Not messy enough There was satisfaction there, but I think it needed just a hair of a conclusion There s a big discovery, words are said, words are listened to, and then we re outta here The mom, especially, does a turnaround that didn t feel real to me I needed a little thought there Kids would probably not agree.Years ago there was an episode of the Radiolab podcast about a moment in history when a scientist truly believed he might have found a way to remove select memories from people s brains The scientist was then flooded with desperate requests from people around the world These people were begging him to remove the pain of the past from their brains This connects, for me, to the moment in this book when it starts to rain When that happens, some of the neighbors go out of their way to express pure fury at Elodee s family It s very much a case of them essentially saying, Your discomfort is reminding me of my discomfort We want so very much to find ourselves a blank slate of some sort No bad past, no fearful future And kids, the age of the readers of this book, already have a sense of this Some of this book s readers will have encountered fearful, horrible, terrible things in their pasts Some of them will encounter these things in their futures And a bunch of them will look at Eventown, even with all its flaws, and want to go there in the same way that kids have wanted to go to Hogwarts for years There is no Eventown Not even Eventown is Eventown I won t tell you that s good or bad You re just going to have to read this book and decide for yourself.For ages 9 12 flag 13 likesLike see review Jul 06, 2018 Mandy Stallard rated it it was amazing review of another edition Shelves bookposse I am a huge fan of The Someday Suitcase

their last day in their hometown of Juniper Things have been difficult for their family for a while something terrible happened, and now they are sad all the time Their parents decide to move the family, and they pick a small, idyllic place called Eventown Everything seems perfect in Eventown the food Elodee cooks tastes better than it ever has before her father s rosebush from Juniper flourishes her mom is finally happy, and shy Naomie feels right at home Unfortunately, Elodee is having trouble assimilating A visit to the Eventown Welcoming Center is guaranteed to help Elodee fit in with everyone else Unfortunately, her visit is cut short, and after that day, things start to go a little haywire in Eventown Elodee starts questioning Eventown s perfection The beautiful library is full of books with blank pages The delicious ice cream shop only has three different flavors There is only one song in all of Eventown How can a place be perfect when everything and everyone is the same I must admit that I was a bit frustrated with this book when I was a 100 pages in and still had no idea what awful thing had happened to Elodee s family We know that it was something sad that upended the family s lives, but we have no clue what happened to make them feel the need for a fresh start I was desperate to know what trauma they were trying to escape, and I was getting angry that it seemed like I was never going to find out I was just being too impatient because we finally learn about their tragic past in the most perfect way This book would not have been as powerful if Haydu had chosen to reveal their loss at the beginning or even middle of the book By waiting until the end of the book, we feel the family s loss even Haydu s newest novel shows readers that love is messy, but that messy can be beautiful and necessary Our emotions are not isolated we can be happy and sad at the same time Sometimes we need to revisit events from our past, even if they are sad, to appreciate what we have in the present This novel presents valuable life lessons the importance of remembering the past and appreciating differences in a very accessible way for middle grade students

their old home and bringing it with them Eventown has a lot of good opportunities and a lot of fun activities for the girls Elodee loves to cook, and Naomi does gymnastics When the girls go to the welcoming center for their orientation, they find out that Eventown was founded by Jasper Plimmswood for people whose homes were destroyed in a hurricane, and they needed to start over The girls are invited into a room where they tell six stories of their lives, including the most embarrassing moment and the most heartbreaking one, and after they do, the stories are gone from their minds Unfortunately, Elodee s session is interrupted, so she is halfway through the process and can remember just enough about her previous life to make her sad Elodee starts to notive that the family s new perfect life is not so perfect, and that her new friends have gaping holes in their memories, even of important things like their grandparents When Eventown starts to not be so perfect any, it s up to Elodee to come to terms with the reasons her family came to Eventown and to decide if horrible memories are worth having if it means she gets to hold onto the good ones as well Eventown is an interesting setting, and Elodee s mother s new job is a convincing reason for the family to move The physical layout, the beauty of the houses, and the perfect weather all make for an idyllic new home for a fractured family The reason why the family is in pain is not revealed until the very ending of the book, and I don t want to spoil it other than to say that there should perhaps be trigger warnings While most of the characters are fairly flat, because they have given up their memories, Elodee is inquisitive and engaged, trying to settle into her new surroundings and make things better for her family in their new home while trying to navigate the waters with different equipment than the other residents have Readers who want to embrace sad stories rather than forget them will sympathize with Elodee s quest for truth, even if it is painful for her Personally, I disagree with the entire premise of this novel There is nothing wrong with forgetting sad things, if one were even able to do so in the real world, and I don t think it is fair to portray the vast majority of families dealing with grief in middle grade novels as fractured and unable to go on That s just insulting People go on because there is no other option As I explained in my post on Jason Reynold s The Boy in the Black Suit, my truth is that unpleasant things are best forgotten It s not everyone s truth, but it is mine, and this book was at odds with my truth Everyone else seems to think it is fantastic, so read some other reviews as well before making up your mind about it flag 1 likeLike see review

one of Elodee s failed attempts at the jasmine olive oil cake, this story had an ingredient missing for me The visit to the Welcome Center could have been used strategically to build suspense while delivering a hint of what made the Lively family move to Eventown Why does Elodee s three held onto stories cause such a huge influx of weeds What happened when Veena s family rebelled in their own

in the gut with real and raw emotion.The mature themes at the end of the story are quite a shock, especially coming from juvenile fiction and the youthful innocence of the main characters I think this sudden shift is incredibly effective at drawing the intense flow of suppressed emotions from the reader and parallels the characters experiences I definitely cried for a good while at the end Note
