Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling

I was pulled in to this book by the awesome title and the great cover and the inside of the book didn’t disappoint.  Aven is an awesome protagonist.  Not only was she born without arms and knows how to do everything people with arms can do, she is a strong-willed and smart girl that makes a great role model for young girls today.  Bowling did a lot of research about what life for Aven would be like and it shows.  She has created three-dimensional characters and placed them in a fun setting, a run down amusement park.  Part mystery, part realistic story about friendship, this book is a fun ride that you will be thrilled to take with Aven.
