    1. As seen on Ed and Em's Reviews!Ivy in the Shadows is a cute middle grade story that is sure to entertain.Ever since Ivy's stepfather, Jack Henry, walked out on her mama, things have been going downhill. First, mama starts making them go to church again so that she can connect with the congregation and practically beg for help. Then her little brother, JJ, meets Caleb, who Ivy is sure keeps making up stories to impress JJ and to make matters worse mama offered to take him in until his missionary [...]

    2. It was okay- reminded me of Elizabeth Berg for Tweens. I don't know that I'd recommend it to any Tweens- I think of my own daughter especially. There is not a great deal of excitement, but there are believable characters.

    3. I give this story 3.75 stars to be exact.Ivy lives a life of being ignored. Her stepfather leaves the family with nothing meaning her mother has to find a way to make ends meet. To do so, she takes in a boarder, twelve-year-old Caleb, someone Ivy thinks is the weirdest kid she's ever met. Also, Ivy's mother gets a job waitressing. With her mother at her job, Ivy's five-year-old brother JJ in love with Caleb, and her best friend Ellen trying to become a part of the popular group, Ivy feels more a [...]

    4. Upper elementary and middle school girl readers will enjoy this true-to-life story of a 12-year-old girl. Ivy is learning how to deal with her mother's failed marriages, assuming more responsibility for her younger brother J.J, navigating the waters of changed school friendships, and figuring out Caleb, the boarder her mother takes in to help make ends meet. Like many children in families, Ivy learns about life by eavesdropping. She listens to her mother's discussions with her best friend, "Aunt [...]

    5. After Ivy's guitar playing, untrustworthy stepfather leaves, her mother finds it hard to make ends meet. She goes to church and asks for help, and is offered a job as a waitress and given the opportunity to take in a young boy, Caleb, as a boarder. Both things help, but Ivy isn't happy. Caleb is odd, and with her mother working until 7:00 p.m. or so, she has to babysit her younger brother JJ. Ivy has her own problems at school with friends, but spends a lot of time eavesdropping on her mother's [...]

    6. Twelve-year-old Ivy Greer’s life is in a state of upheaval. Her stepfather has taken off, her mother is trying to find ways to make ends meet (including turning the family into churchgoers so they can ask the congregation for help), and her best friend is becoming a totally different person (and trying to change Ivy, too). The book’s title refers to Ivy’s habit of eavesdropping to find out what her mother and other grownups are planning, but it also reflects Ivy’s feelings of displacemen [...]

    7. Ivy in the Shadows is an inspiring story about family, friendship, trust, and growing up. The writing style is clear and the pacing is smooth. Ivy's (main character) voice is engaging and strong. I like that the story is narrated in the first person POV because readers can easily relate to Ivy. Plus, the author's choice of words are really appropriate for young readers. The story encapsulated the struggles of kids today like fitting in, being insecure about themselves, and feeling overshadowed. [...]

    8. Ivy in the shadows ended up to be a very confusing and emotional honesty book, esp due to her desire for Caleb . This book was quite interesting but started to bore me as she started to explain the unnecessary issues and conflicts not even having to do with the chapter.

    9. I received an ARC edition of this book.I'd recommend this book for middle-grade girls who want a story with no adult content.

    10. A decent middle grade read about growing up and learning who you are thought it was good but not fantastic, but definitely a good read for someone looking for a solid coming-of-age tale.
