The Prophet of Yonwood

By Sapphire, Age 11

After reading The Prophet of Yonwood I felt like I was finally understood and that I wasn’t alone anymore. The main character, Nickie, went through “the Crisis,” something a lot like the cold war in the nineteen hundreds and the Pandemic we went through recently. She lost both of her best friends as they moved away like I lost my friends when I moved. Nickie also wants to keep a good house like how I wanted to keep my house. When I went through all of this I felt like I was almost but not completely alone. Since I still had my family and my dog I wasn’t really alone but they never understood me. I was alone. So when I read this it really helped me feel like someone finally saw me.
