Menschen aus Pfeifenputzern Häuser aus Keksschachteln Wattewolken und ein Spiegelsee Die zehnjährige Judith hat sich in ihrem Zimmer eine kleine Welt geschaffen ganz für sich allein In der Schule wird sie gehänselt weil sie anders ist Reason for Reading Very intriguing plot captured my interestThis is a tough book to review I loved parts of it and disliked other parts of it Mainly I adored the main character 10yo Judith in whose voice the narrative is written She is naive and not always a reliable narrator but we are given events from her point of view as she sees them happen I read the book very uickly over two days and had a hard time putting the book down Parts of it were just lovely other parts I heartily disagreed with As a Christian I don t feel the author is making a grand statement one way or the other about Christianity as a whole I do think she is using this powerful message of fatherdaughter relationship a mother s death a girl s bullying because of her religion to show that bad things happen even when we have the best intentions That fanaticism of anything is never good That God does not let bad things happen we make our own choices and suffer the conseuences of them as rightly we shouldJudith carries this book She and her father belong to this unnamed religious fringe group never named but disclaimed to be Mormons which is obsessed with the End Times Otherwise they seem harmless enough much of their Christian doctrine can be found in true Christian denominations but then it has been twisted in a way to make it what it is in this book This may offend some Christian readers but I take it that it is fiction and that these kind of kooky Christian sects do exist though they are not the norm This group for the most part follows Christ it is its obsession with Armageddon which removes it from the focus of Christ Non Christians may find the book too full of Christian references Bible uotations and simple plain Christian living this may annoy them or unfortunately make them think this fringe group is somehow representative of normal ChristianityThese are the things I didn t like about the book the constant fighting in my head with the representation of these Christians Something profound would be said and then something eually laughable would be said As to the story otherwise it was very good Judith is a naive girl who asks big uestions of her father the grown ups at church about religion and life She is always asking why and she is respected for her clever uestions At school it is the same except with the other children and one boy in particular who bullies and teases her relentlessly because she is an outcast from them Not allowed to attend morning assembly wearing plain clothes and talking easily about God Armageddon and the Den of Iniuity of the modern world No matter what is happening in this world around her her being bullied her dad being a scab boy s taunting their house in the evenings Judith does believe in God and talks to him He has started to answer her back and miracles have started to happen Perhaps this is all in the confused girl s head or perhaps she is a real mystic But you will fall in love with Judith and root for her as she tries to cope with a sad life that left her motherless and alone with a father who does everything he can for her but does not know how to show love and affection This book is going to take some time for me to ruminate on before I really decide whether I think it was just OK or Good I did like it I m just not sure how much The ending was underwhelming and with all the religionGod emphasis throughout I expected something uplifting than what we were given The book did have some moments of sage wisdom and at other times I was left shaking my head The
