To 18-year-old Ramsey Beyer, the transition from smalltown Michigan high schooler to big East Coast city art school student wasn’t entirely easy. Like most college freshmen, Ramsey experienced a wide range of emotions throughout the year, from being painfully homesick to gleefully independent–and everything in between. Through journal entries, collages, lists, and comic-style artwork, she tells a deeply personal story of her journey from childhood to independence.

MY THOUGHTS:

LITTLE FISH: A MEMOIR FROM A DIFFERENT KIND OF YEAR by Ramsey Beyer is an interesting Young Adult Nonfiction/Biography & Autobiography/Art/Memoir. Age Range: 12+. What an interesting story told through journal entries,lists and illustrations. A personal,entertaining and insightful story of coming of age and the transition from childhood,to college years, to independence. Very insightful and entertaining! This from a nine-year old: “Well written,easy to read,cartoon-like captions,funny,tells you about her life,I like the beginning where she tells you how old she is now and how, it looks like she is turning the pages for you. I would recommend it for someone who can read big books,and is really good at reading,although, I am only nine-years old, I had very little issues reading it. I had to sound out a few of the big words. But I enjoyed “Little Fish” a lot. My grand-daughter and I would recommend this entertaining story for not only young adults, but for adults as well. A well written and again very entertaining! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
