Ellie, Engineer

Ellie is a STEM-oriented girl who loves to build things and self-identifies as an engineer. She loves finding out how things work by not only building but by taking things apart (which sometimes gets her into trouble). 

There is typical age-appropriate friend drama included, and I liked how Ellie eventually involved all her friends in her hobby. There are end pages which describe various hand tools and their uses. Overall I'd place this as an ok read for kids up to 5th grade. 

There isn't anything wrong with it- I just don't love it. The story was predictable and I have a low tolerance for peer drama so it may just be me.

Verdict: Borrow

I read this as an  E ARC from NetGalley

I'm a lifelong bibliophile who happens to love children's books and who should have become a librarian. Instead I horde books in case of apocalypse or the enactment of a Fahrenheit 451 type law. My five kids accept my addiction and have learned to accept books in odd places.
