Reviewed by Kristen Van Kampen for Readers' Favorite

Growing Up Poor In A Frank Lloyd Wright Home by Stanley G. Buford is a young adult book that follows a family of five (four children and their mom). One day, one of the children gets hit by a car, and the mother is worried about the rest of them. She no longer thinks the place where they live is safe. They decide to move to Francisco Terrence, but it is more expensive to live there, and the mother already had trouble paying rent. But then one of the children makes a hole in the wall that helps them with their financial issues. What does that hole lead to?

I really enjoyed Growing Up Poor In A Frank Lloyd Wright Home by Stanley G. Buford. The book is really inspiring, as it teaches the reader to hold onto their dreams. I was hooked by the first paragraph and I liked the opening sentence. The book is well-written and exciting. The characters are likeable, inspiring, and relatable, because many mothers have to make sacrifices for their children, and many people grow up poor. I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. I wanted to know what happened next. The book ended happily, and it was nice to know the characters would be okay. I liked how the book showed the reader what life was like during that time period. I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy realistic fiction.

Chef of the Month!

The author, Stanley G. Buford, relates what it means to have an appreciation of the finer things in life by virtue of the fact that he knows that the detriment of growing up poor often brings heartache. The ending kept me riveted to my seat with the expectation that the story would yield a positive result for the antagonist as well as my peace of mind...guess what? I was not disappointed and neither will you be as a prospective reader. Enjoy!
