Violet and the Jurassic Land Exhibit (The Infinity Rainbow Club, 2)
The main character in The Infinity Rainbow Club: Violet and the Jurassic Land Exhibit by Jen Malia and illustrated by Peter Francis is Violet. Violet and her friend Nick are in fourth grade and they are members of the Infinity Rainbow Club. That’s a club for kids who feel different. Violet has obsessive-compulsive disorder and Nick is autistic. They both love dinosaurs. Violet’s lucky number is seven. She does everything seven times.
Violet’s mother is a paleontologist and her grandma looks for dinosaur bones too. Violet faces problems and tries to make the dinosaur exhibit perfect.
This book was not what I expected. There are no new dinosaur facts. It’s just a story about Violet. Which is fine, but I like dinosaur facts better. I liked that Violet’s mom is a paleontologist and I didn’t know about boba tea. That sounds yummy! But the book didn’t grab my attention and keep me reading the way some books do. I did like how Violet worries a lot and has unwanted thoughts about people getting hurt. I have those too sometimes, so that part felt real. This book helped me see how other people think and live different lives from me.
