Book Review - Don't Stand So Close To Me by Eric Walters

Don't Stand So Close to Me

Don't Stand So Close to Me by Eric Walters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Synopsis:  Thirteen-year-old Quinn and her friends can't believe their luck when spring break is extended an extra two weeks—even if it's because of some virus. But when the impact of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic becomes apparent, everyone, not just the students, has to learn to adjust to their new reality. Quinn’s father is an ER doctor and has to self-isolate to protect his family from the virus. Isaac’s mother is the chief of police and now has to enforce new physical-distancing bylaws.

My Thoughts: This is an excellent fictional story to help children understand what went on/still going on when covid-19 broke out. It breaks things down with simple examples to help better understand why and how all the changes came about.

All Quinn and her school friends were worried about was getting ready for an upcoming school dance. This story tells how quickly their life changed and the struggles that came along with it.

It was interesting to read. Brought back so many of my own memories and thoughts of wondering if things will ever be the same again.
