    1. This review was originally posted on Between My LinesEvie Brooks is Marooned in Manhattan is a book that you would love to present to all pre teens and early teens to read.  It is innocent but realistic with a loveable main character. First Line of Evie Brooks is Marooned in Manhattan: "Lashing out furiously like a cornered dog, I managed to free the collar of my cardigan from the security guard's grip and started to freefall into a void, my long hair trailing swiftly behind me." My Thoughts on [...]


    2. A copy was provided by the publisher in return for an honest reviewI loved this book! It was such a sweet uplifting read.After the tragic death of her mother, Evie has no choice other than to leave her friends behind and move to New York with her uncle Scott. I really felt for her here. I can't imagine being taken away from the last constant in my life after something so catastrophic.Scott and Evie come to a compromise. She can spend the summer in NYC and then decide if she wants to stay or retu [...]


    3. Evie Brooks moves to New York to live with her Uncle Scott after her mother dies.

But as she settles into life in New York and her uncle's vet practice and makes some friends she starts to change her mind. On the other hand though, her uncle's girlfriend is a nightmare and is plotting to get rid of Evie. And Evie can't bear the thought that her pres [...]


    4. I love this book! It's a jaunty story that keeps your attention right to the exciting climax.The author clearly loves animals,as I do and having recently visited NYC,the book came alive for me.Sheila Agnew is a natural writer,buy it for the young and young at heart in your lives!


    5. Evie’s mother has recently died, and her only relative, her Uncle Scott, has gained custody. Completely overwhelmed and not sure she can handle yet another change, Evie is not thrilled with the decision. It’s bad enough to lose your Mum, but all her friends, her life, everything she knows is in Dublin, and Scott, although willing, is unfamiliar. Scott’s amiability and true understanding for Evie are highlighted when he gets her to do a “trial run”, and if, after the summer she hates Ne [...]


    6. Review by Kate - Year 9The title sets the scene – but Manhattan and Marooned – how can this be? Manhattan, the Big Apple, the City that is alive and vibrant, thronging with sounds, sights and smells can not possibly allow anyone to feel abandoned or lost. It does become clear the way in which Evie feels ‘marooned’ as she tells her story and follows her mothers last wish, moving to live with her American Uncle Scott.Evie’s tale is sentimental, emotional and believable. Her courage and m [...]


    7. Light-hearted fiction about a 12 year old girl, Evie, from Ireland who after her single mother dies is sent to live with her only living relative, her Uncle Scott, in New York City for a summer. He has promised to send her back to Ireland to live with her Godmother in time for the new school year if in the fall she finds she doesn't like living with him and doesn't want to stay. He's handsome and dresses well (like a GQ model apparently). He drives an old jeep and works all kinds of crazy hours [...]


    8. Evie Brooks in twelve years old. She really doesn't want to go to New York to stay with her Uncle Scott. But it was her Mother's last wish, so Evie leaves Ireland to find herself in a city which feels worlds away from what she knows. It takes time, but she eventually begins to fall in love with New York, making friends and helping out at Scott's veterinary surgery. However, Scott's girlfriend Leela doesn't seem happy to have Evie around, infact she makes it very clear that Evie isn't part of her [...]


    9. "Lashing out furiously like a cornered dog, I managed to free the collar of my cardigan from the security guard's grip"12-year-old Evie sometimes feels as if her life is one very fast amusement park ride. It was her mother's last wish that Evie would go to N.Y.C and live with her Uncle Scott. So, "Orphan Evangeline" makes the culturally shocking leap from Dublin, Ireland and into Manhattan. As she begins to work as her uncle's veterinary assistant and makes new friends (animal and human), the ci [...]


    10. This was a cute read. I was initially a little disappointed to find out after a few pages that the book revolves around a twelve year old. But thankfully the author didn't write the character to be a whiny, immature kid. Evie Brooks, orphaned after a lone parent dies, sets out to New York to stay with her Uncle Scott for the summer. We follow Evie's adventures in the city - helping out Scott at his Vet practise, making new friends and an enemy in his girlfriend Leela who wants Evie gone back to [...]


    11. Evie Brooks is a twelve year old girl sent to live with her uncle in New York City when her mother passes away. Her uncle, a vet in private practice, convinces her to stay the summer with the promise of returning to Ireland to stay with her godmother, Janet, if she does not find city life to her liking. Evie, by turns sweet and mischievous, is a character that you can't help but like and root for. Evie Brooks is a real-to-life, innocent, and charming main character. Whether she is helping with t [...]


    12. Evie Brooks is now an orphan and is moving from her home in Dublin, Ireland to Manhattan to live with her uncle, Scott for the summer. Evie has been promised that at the end of the summer if she wants to move back to Ireland and live with her godmother, she may, but until then, she has to learn how to live as an American. Uncle Scott is a vet and it doesn't take Evie long to fall in love with working and caring for the animals that come in to see him. He even makes her his assistant. But, troubl [...]


    13. I'm a teacher. When I was discussing New York with my fifth class as part of an SESE lessons, one of my students recommended that we read this book. I've just finished it and I enjoyed it very much. It's the story of a twelve-year-old Irish girl, Evie, who moves to New York after the death of her mother. The book really brought New York to life for the reader. The author manages to blend very serious issues with humour. The character development is excellent and it's a must read for anyone who l [...]


    14. We moved from New York to Ireland last year and my daughters and I loved revisiting that special place through the eyes of Evie BrooksEvie is a teenage Irish girl who has to go and live with her uncle at his vets practice in Manhattan where adventures ensue ,choices are made and growing up occursA wonderfully funny fast paced book with a real feel for the three main characters Evie New York City And the wonderful animalsThis has the potential for a series and we look forward to the next installm [...]


    15. This is a cute middle grade book with all the requisite characters and plot twists. I enjoyed Evie and Scott's relationship and the interactions with the animals more than the cartoon villain of Leela and her dastardly plot, but I'll read more of this series as a light literary snack. I did get annoyed that characters occasionally spoke the wrong dialect (Mostly US characters using UK expressions).

REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 2 monthsMAY CONTAIN SPOILER:This is a great book! Evie's mom passed away and Evie goes to live with her Uncle Scott in America. Leela, Scott's girlfriend, is trying to get rid of Evie, but will it work?


    17. I really liked this one! Loved Evie and her voice and all of the supporting cast. My only quibble would be that many of the pop culture references already felt dated, something which will only grow more true in time. (Mom, what's a blackberry?) At any rate, I certainly look forward to checking out the next installment!ARC provided by Net Galley. (I'm a little behind!)


    18. I loved this book so much that I'm looking forward to a re-read. It was both funny and poignant. The writing was wonderful, very fresh and direct. It was a nice change to read something that is not about unicorns, witches, wizards or monsters. The book reminded me of the Jean Webster books, which I have read and re-read throughout the years. I'm looking forward to the sequel.


    19. Loved Loved this book! It's bright and very funny and makes you think without being gloomy or dark. It really makes you remember how you thought as a girl and I loved the chance to visit New York through Evie's eyes


    20. I don't usually read realistic contemporary fiction, but this was a good read. The adults were realistically portrayed, not the usual extreme stereotypes.
