I read this book and (like the title says) it was AMAZING! Where the Watermelons Grow is a very deep and insightful novel written for middle schoolers. The author, Cindy Baldwin, has a VERY descriptive writing style. All of her characters have their own unique personality, which I think makes the book so much more interesting and vivid. Overall, Where the Watermelons Grow is a must read for a middle school student of any age. There is not a single bit I would change, which is very rare for me! I hope you will consider reading this novel!!!
