One Time

Written by Sharon Creech

“Who are you? Who could you be?” Miss Lightstone inspires her students, opens their minds, and helps them develop a love for writing. One Time is a beautifully written novel by Sharon Creech. She is masterful in bringing her characters, from Antonio “with a ridiculously charming smile,” to Gina, with her bright, unique clothing and thoughtful spirit, to life. Although you are left wanting to know more about their backstory and the current happenings in their lives, One Time is a novel that will encourage aspiring authors and thoughtful readers. It will encourage readers to better understand themselves and others.
