    3. It's a good book. It was nice to see a girl that wants to visit her grandma to help them. Her life turned pretty bad until her Grandma ended up in the hospital. Poppy is like a dog lover and she fixes problems. My feelings about this book were pretty intense and scary. I recommend to share this book to my friends and I want to read this over again.

    6. This middle-grade book was at our book fair last year and I finally got around to reading it. It really has everything tween readers will want (foster care, shelter animals, sick grandparent, witnessing a crime, grief, doing the right thing, friendship) without the risque teen drama parents sometimes worry about. Poppy is a brave character with some of the of same flaws 12-year-old readers will recognize and empathize with. I love the way cops are portrayed throughout the story, as well--they've [...]

    7. Poppy has been through so much already, yet she still has more to go. First of all her parents died when she was little. Now there is a dangerous criminal after her, her favorite dog might be put down, and her grandmother has a stroke. Could it get any worse for Poppy Parker?I gave this book five stars because I couldn't put it down. I think this book was phenomenal and wouldn't mind reading it again. Poppy was a very brave and courageous girl, and that will teach other people to be that way to. [...]

    8. Not often do I discover an author who can cause me to love and empathize with the main character in a few pages. But this is one of those books. The characters come to life almost immediately.By far this is one of the best middle grade books I've read, and I would highly recommend it whether you are a child or adult. You won't be disappointed.

    9. I have been getting book recommendations from a 10-year-old friend and she has exquisite taste. This is an extraordinary book and it takes kids seriously.

    10. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: middle grade novels often surprise me with their innate understanding of the fine line between childhood innocence and the first step toward growing up, an idea that Dianna Winget beautifully approaches in A Million Ways Home. Twelve-year-old Priscilla "Poppy" Parker has had a tough time recently. Her grandmother recently suffered a stroke and is now in care, and Poppy has to live in a children's home while her grandmother recovers. But when a mistaken [...]

    13. Honestly some of the best middle grade I’ve ever read, and to think I nearly took this off my tbr multiple times.Such a wonderfully bittersweet story about love and friendship and coming to terms with hard things. I personally enjoy when middle grade books don’t try too hard to make everything too positive and happy. Even a book aimed at children should be realistic, so I liked this book had its happy moments but had a darker undertone as well.We follow a young girl named Poppy who lives wit [...]

    14. This was one of my favorite Book I have read in a long time My favorite part was when she was trying to baby sit and she had no idea what he was doing that was so funny I hope ever one who read this book love it as much as i did.

    15. I have a confession to make. This book would have rated higher, but it made me so angry that I had to bump a star or two. Overall, it was a good book. I loved the message it provided, however, I wouldn't dare put this in the hands of anyone younger than 12 or 13. As cute as the cover is, this was a hard book. Twelve year old Poppy is having to live in a children's shelter because her grandmother (who is her sole caretaker since Poppy's parents died when she was a baby) had a stroke. The novel be [...]

    23. Morals:Do what's right.Give everyone a second chance.Respect your elders.A normal book that teachers want to you read. It has ideal morals, characters with different personalities, and dogs (and a few cats). I'm a cat person, but dogs are always awesome, too. Read if you want a story that you can devour in one afternoon. Yeeaaahhhh.

    24. Over all great book! There were some things that as a twelve year old in the situation of a robbery, I don't think I personally would have done, but I still liked the story line nonetheless. As we have this book in our library, I have seen it circulate quite a few times, so I will definitely be looking for more books by Dianna Winget.

    25. Two of my students read and loved this novel. They promised me the dog on the cover didn't die, so I borrowed it from them to give it a read. Very moving story about what family is, and how to deal with the tough stuff life throws at you.
