Book Review

Rabbit Cake is not my typical read. I am lucky that I happenstanced upon it in a library sale. I was enamored by the colorful cover and picked it up. Who said not to judge a book by it’s cover? I’m so glad I did! Rabbit Cake explores the intense process of grief, and how many people handle it completely differently. From page one, I was in love with the main character, Elvis, who is a smart elementary school student. She’s not sure how to handle grief and emotion after her mother dies, but neither does anyone else in her family.

This book was a read that grabbed my heard and squeezed it over and over, causing it to ache a bit after the end, but in a good way. It explored how your actions can impact others in your life, it explored how grief impacts people, and it explored the deep familial bonds that occur when you go through grief together.

Rabbit Cake was a great change of pace for me. It was something a little outside my comfort zone, but it was beautifully written and had so many themes in it. I definitely suggest this book! Check it out at the link below.
