ARC Review: The Amazing Life of Azaleah Lane by Nikki Shannon Smith , Mari Lobo (Illustrations)


I have a 7 year old daughter and I requested this book mostly for her. We’re black and oftentimes our stories are not told and I feel that it’s important for her to read books where characters look like her and share the same cultural background.

To put it shortly, we loved this book. The illustrations are that amazing mix of cute and gorgeous and Azaleah is such a brave, smart character. I was reminded of Doc Mcstuffins in a way in fact!

This book wasn’t just for my daughter however, it was for me as well. I am a huge mystery fan and this mystery was a fun ride to go on and attempt to solve with Juliet. In the end we both feel that a 5 star rating is exactly what The Amazing Life of Azaleah Lane deserves although we wish we could give so much more.

This is a fantastic book for all children and adults. If you have a little one you’ll definitely want to read it with them and dive into the life of the amazing Azaleah Lane 🙂

Thank you very much to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC. All opinions are my own. 

✨✨✨✨✨ 5/5
