Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Who is My Neighbor? by Julie Osaretin Osayande is a book that will make readers more aware of the neighbors they have and also the type of people they are. Most of the time, due to the busy lives we all lead, people tend to be ignorant of who is living next door to them and don't want to know if they are good, kind or bad. The book is about the neighbors who at times turn out to be helpful and might play a role that could change our lives forever. So it's important to be attentive to the people living around us, be they good or bad, educated or uneducated, friendly or unfriendly.

The book gives an interesting portrayal of characters who are relatable to readers. The author has given each one of them important and noticeable parts in the book, with an emphasis on their behavior so that readers can connect well with them. That makes the book more cogent, and whether it is Sandy, Mrs Jim, Frank or the other characters, they do teach us a lesson. Sometimes the neighbors we think to be bad will be the ones who end up helping us during times of trouble. The theme is simple and very original, but it has a good message for readers. I enjoyed the book, not only for its story, but also for the subtle message it conveys. The story highlights the importance of things we usually take for granted.
