Being the new kid in town is a way of life for Bets, but moving to California in 1967 is different. Her father leaves for the war in Vietnam, her history teacher gives an assignment that has the whole school searching for clues, and the town’s most mysterious resident shares a secret with Bets that has been hidden away for decades. When a peaceful protest spins out of control, Bets is forced to reconsider how she feels about the war her father is fighting and her own role in events taking place much closer to home.

Miss E. was a great book. I was sucked into the story from the very first sentence, and I finished the whole book in one afternoon.

The book was very easy and fun to read, and I feel in love with the characters. Bets is strong willed and an independent thinker. As the story progressed, she not only learned about Miss E., she learned about herself. The whole story left me all warm and fuzzy.

I loved how each character was so unique. Even the characters with smaller parts had their own story and individuality without much being said about them. It was so easy to imagine myself back in 1967, meeting each of the characters and going to Sonny’s to eat pizza and hang out with them.

I also love Miss E. I love her so much! All I want to do is go in her house and drink tomato juice and listen to her stories… and of course go on adventures with her! Although the story is about Bets, Miss E. is a huge driving force behind her actions, and teachers her some important life lessons without saying more than a few words.

This is a book I would recommend to anyone and everyone. It is a fun and easy read, and it is such a feel good story!

I am going to give Miss E. five out of five hearts.
