Love Double Dutch

Written by Doreen Spicer-Dannelly

MaKayla lives for Double Dutch because it is an escape from the drama in her life. Over the summer her parents decided it would be best if MaKayla and her brother visited their relatives in North Carolina. MaKayla is not excited for three reasons: 1) nothing happens in North Carolina 2) her cousin HATES her 3) NO DOUBLE DUTCH! Can MaKayla find the good in her current situation? Read the book and find out.

I enjoyed reading this book because MaKayla learns to look beyond assumptions and to rely on others. Another fun element of the book is that it introduces the reader to the world of Double Dutch competition. Upon completing the book I had an inclination to learn more about this hidden sport.
