L at school who wishes she didn't have to live above her uncle's funeral home and tries to write her way to her own happily ever after Then Miles and Amy meet in the most unexpected way and that's when it all begins. In Your Shoes is a wonderful new contemporary middle grade novel that tackles important topics such as mental illness friendship trust trying to fit in and family I don t normally read this genre but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book The story was sweet and definitely relevant to today s kids I also really liked how it touches on mental illness in the form of anxiety and makes it accessible to the age range of children reading the story I believe it s important to tackle ignorance at a young ageThe main characters Miles and Amy were both easy to identify with right from the beginning and easy to connect with They were both realistic with flaws and great traits alike and both saw and accepted these things in each other which made their friendship all the stronger I really identified with Miles due to his anxiety issues because I also suffer from the same affliction Amy was the new girl who hates living in her uncle s creepy funeral home I loved watching Amy and Miles meet and then seeing their friendship grow and deepen throughout the novel To me the plot was that important the story was about their friendship and how important it can be in someone s life Also the tough topics it touches on kind of take over the small details of the story but it s something that I didn t mind at all I felt this was of a character study instead of an intense plot and the ideas it talks of are relevant than the majority of the things that happen during the story I definitely recommend this book to fans of middle grade children s fiction and contemporary fictionDisclosure I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review
