TFK Reads: The List of Things That Will Not Change


Looking for a good book this summer? TIME for Kids is here to help. Our editors selected 10 of the most exciting books of the season. Then we handed them off to our team of TFK Kid Reporters to get their opinions. Here, TFK Kid Reporter Alexis Bumah reviews The List of Things That Will Not Change by Rebecca Stead.

This is our last book review of the summer. See below for more recommended reads.

Line Break

Bea lives with her mom on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other weekend. She lives with her dad and his fiancé on the other days. When Bea’s parents divorced, her life was turned upside down. To help, they give her a journal for her to write a “List of Things That Will Not Change.” As she has new experiences, she adds them to her list.

Most children will relate to Bea in some way. Readers will enjoy the roller coaster of events in this engaging book.
