When the World Turned Upside Down

We rated this book:


Shayla is always bored in school, and she doesn’t really want to hang out with her friends Ai, Ben, and Liam. But that changes when the school closes because of a new virus. Now they are all locked up in their apartments, and Shayla starts helping Ai, Ben, and Liam. They help the neighbors. And then they hear that a lot of Black people are getting killed, and Shayla, Ben, Liam, and Ai want to make a change.

I haven’t read a book where the story happens during COVID-19 before, and it was interesting to read one. This story was all about friendship, family, and fighting for equal rights. Sometimes I lost a little interest. The characters were fun to read about, and I liked how every one of their families reacted differently to the world turning upside down.
