This book was decent enough. It was not a fantastic book, but I did not regret reading it. Not the first book i'd reccomend, but that's just my opinion👍

Note: I actually read the hardback version of this book, borrowed from another library.

This book was incredible. I was wondering why I've heard so much, for so long, about Maniac Magee, and very little about this book. Then I thought maybe Maniac had been written a long time ago, so it's had lots of time to get good reviews. But (if Goodreads tells the truth) Maniac was written in 2002, and Eggs only five years later, in 2007. So I don't know why one is a Newbery winner, and the other... not. Because Eggs is great. The dialog between David and Primrose, the story of David's mother, and especially their "trip to the city", all are beautifully written.

Touching and well written, about a young, motherless boy named David, and a teen girl, with a mom, but might as well not have one. Well worth reading!

A good book with lots of heartfelt emotions that were portrayed very well. Not a lot of action however. Sometimes slow events.

A good book, and written very well, but just not my type of book, which is why I didn't rate it well. Don't take itw wrong, people!

“Of course, all of their words for a thousand years could not fill the hole left by his mother, but they could raise a loving fence around it so he didn't keep falling in.”
― Jerry Spinelli
