The Big House On Adams Street by Alberta Sparks turned out to be a book that I ended up not liking it at all. This book was super hard for to me finish because to me the entire book seemed rushed and I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the characters in this book. The book moved at a pace that made it hard to get to know the characters and things like that. I wished that the author would have taken more time for us to get to know the characters better. I also wish that more time would have been taken with setting up the story because I am sure I would have liked it if it had more details and more time was taken.
