    1. Jean on said:

      I had high hopes for this books since Julia Alvarez is such a wonderful writer But I was sorely disappointed and about 3 4 of the way through I just gave up The story is told in two voices, one omniscient with the focus on Tyler and one in first person by Mari Both characters are 11, but other than glimpses of the bullies at school, we don t see very much that ties them to that age group Mari tells her story in the form of letters that are so stilted and overwritten that it strained credibility [...]

      Julia Alvarez knows how to characterize the blur in the line between right and wrong She knows how to make it clear that reality and morality are continuums and not dichotomies of this or that, up or down, or yes or no There are no absolutes Now, there s an oxymoron We have a long way to go.Alvarez begins with a young man, her protagonist, Tyler, the younger eleven year old son in a family who has survived and thrived by running a dairy farm in Vermont The family s farming heritage is at risk Ty [...]

      I read this book along with my tutoring student it was her going in to 10th grade summer reading assignment I ll try to include both our perspectives, as she s certainly much closer to the intended audience than I am.I tell you what, though I m surprised by the school s choice These students are 14 15 years old, but the book s protagonists, Tyler and Mari, are only 11 I don t believe that the old kids only want to read about older kids saw is universally true of the millions of 9th graders annua [...]

    5. Anne on said:

      This book disappointed me I would give it 2.5 if I could Julia Alvarez is a brilliant novelist who should probably stick to writing for adults, because her young adult tone comes off as forced, oversimplified, and too young This is a compelling and timely story bogged down by an awkward format, too many exclamation points, and a style that isn t true to Alvarez s lyrical talents.

    8. Janet Frost on said:

      This book was on my list for Hispanic authors with Hispanic characters I was totally engaged with the characters The story was based on several pertinent struggles in our country today The main conflict was concerning migrant workers and the immigration issues But the secondary, and equally as heart wrenching story line was the farm family that is forced to hire the migrant workers in order to save their family farm The young characters genuinely struggle through the minefield of these very adul [...]

    9. Rachel on said:

      I could not put this book down I was engrossed in the story, waiting to see what was going to happen to Mari and her family and wondering how this was going to impact Tyler and the farm The continual shift in perspectives between these two main characters kept me engaged as well I tried to imagine that I was reading this novel as a middle school student, wondering how I would react and whose side I would have been on at that age I appreciated that Tyler was going through a similar struggle tryin [...]

    10. Ms. Sethi on said:

      This book tells the story of two families There are two narrators, fifth graders from each family I loved how the story was realistic about the challenges facing immigrant families and family owned farms in the United States today I loved the format of sometimes telling the story through letters and having Spanish integrated in the book I will be sharing this novel with my students especially as we are talking about immigration and what it means to be an American.

    11. Anne Marie on said:

      The topic of the book and the way the story is related through narrative prose and letters, and also through insightful points of view were really interesting, but ultimately completely overshadowed by how heavy handed, preachy, and condescending the book is There is also very little description of any characters or settings all emphasis is on dialogue and lesson teaching.

      Return to Sender was definitely not something I would have picked up on my own It was assigned reading for my intercultural connections class I don t usually read juvenile fiction but I m working on changing that From the beginning things were a little rocky with this title Even now, while I m trying to write a review, my opinion is still rocky.Tyler is a an eleven year old boy returning to his family s farm after a sabbatical in the city with his aunt and uncle to heal after the death of his gr [...]

      1 Genre Contemporary Realism 2 Mari s Mexican family and Tyler s American family are bonded unexpectedly as her family works on Tyler s family s farm Though this seems to be a simple business trade, Mari and her father are in America illegally This story is an account of the tribulations they endure together ultimately towards the acceptance of diversity 3 Critique a I m not sure if it s because of my personal beliefs about illegal immigration or if it was simply the way the story was written, b [...]

      I had to read this book for a children s literature class for pk 8 Honestly, my review may be slightly unfair as this genre just isn t my kind of book.It s about a boy, Tyler, and his family who own a farm They are in danger of losing the farm, and in order to keep it, they hire some Mexican workers who are in the country illegally The book mostly focuses on Tyler and one of the Mexican girls, Mari They are about the same age, and become good friends Overall, I thought the book was really boring [...]

      1 Contemporary Realism, Junior Chapter Book2 Return to Sender is a book about a family of illegal Mexican immigrants who come to work on a family farm The American family learns tolerance and not to judge because not only do the workers help save their farm, they also teach them about Mexican culture and the importance of the issue of immigration.3 One thing that stood out to me the most from this story was the way it was written Part of the narrative was in a basic narrative form told from the [...]

      Disappointing definitely not one of her best It s way too long for the middle grade audience actually, it s just too long, but especially for middle grade , repetitious, occasionally preachy I see several comments mentioning it as a teen book, but it s really not the main characters are eleven so no, it isn t that they just seem young , and the language is pretty simple, especially the author s notes in the back Half the book is told in letters, and you see the standard problems Mari apparently [...]

    22. Isabel Briseño on said:

      I did not enjoy reading this book Instead, I was very frustrated by how watered down the many important topics in this book were The overall narrative was dry and boring Further I think, the author did a poor job at developing Mari s character as well as her entire family s struggle Meanwhile, the reader was explained of important events or issues by Tyler, even if they did not pertain to his culture In contrast to Mari, Tyler was intelligent, cultural, daring, learned to be compassionate, and e [...]

    23. Libriar on said:

      A great story about undocumented Mexican workers told from two sides the daughter of a Mexican worker and the son of family that employs the undocumented workers I really got into the story and think Alvarez did a great job showing both sides to a controversial topic I was quite disappointed in how she went about telling both sides though The son s story was told in third person while the daughter s story was told through letters Every time I came back to the son s story it took me several minut [...]

    24. Hilary on said:

      Again, I wonder if I can rate things when I give up on the book, but it was THAT bad The entire plot was cliche, the writing was horrid if she used one exclamation point, I was going to go insane , it was just bad Which is disappointing, because Julia Alvarez is usually really good Anyway, don t try this one.

    25. dianne on said:

      i found this pedantic, prosaic, a real disappointment from Julia.Even for a younger audience i think it borders on insultingly simplistic, Manich ic a definite skip.

    26. Dana on said:

      This book was far preachier than any of Julia Alvarez s other works Also, when you read a lot of one author in a short amount of time, you notice repetitious things Like, when adults call their sons tiger.

    27. Christina N on said:

      The plot was so creative and I loved it Unfortunately, the pacing wasn t right for me, and I didn t pick up the book too much to start reading Still a pretty good read though

    28. Jordan Henderson on said:

      This book was well written, although sometimes it got confusing to follow the different voices It was about a little boy whose father had to hire immigrants to work for him after he is injured The little boy bonds with one of the daughters of the immigrant worker named Mari befriends him She is outgoing than him, while he focuses on his studies she is a little fun loving Tyler is concerned about the status of the workers but finds a friend in Mari who misses her home Together they get through [...]

      Genre Contemporary RealismSummary Return to Sender is a story told through two different perspectives The two voices to be heard throughout the book come from two different twelve year olds One is a son of a farmer, and the other is the oldest of three Mexican daughters working without proper documents on a Vermont farm Tyler is the young boy in this story and he learns that sometimes being wrong is being right Mari is the young girl and through her letters we can see the struggle to be strong w [...]

    30. Kari on said:

      A couple things to note first off, the book is written in a mix of letters that Mari writes and 3rd person narration watching the character Tyler By doing this the reader is able to see things from multiple points of view and creating variety to the story telling At times it felt a bit stilted and if you didn t pay attention to whom the letter was written, it could be a tad confusing.I m conflicted writing this review Parts I really liked and otherst so much This is a hot topic right now, i.e Im [...]
