Dear Hank Williams

Dear Hank WilliamsWritten by Kimberly Willis Holt

Dear Hank Williams was a shot in the dark for me. I had no clue what it was about, whether it would be any good or anything. I was surprised with it, though. There were a lot of current issue type things going on, even though the book was written as if it was 1948. A lot of bragging about families, a lot of struggles that kids deal with today, and a lot of make-you-think type moments.

The only downside was as I kept turning the page hoping that Hank Williams would write back. Reading letters by the same kid got a little old, but then the last few chapters had me rethinking the entire book.

I’d recommend this one as a 6 out of 10, as it wasn’t great, but I’ve read worse things. It’d be a good read for higher reading lower grades, or lower reading higher grades.
