Lea Clark Book Series Review – By IrishAG

Hi everybody!

Gymnast03, Mom and I just finished Lea and Camila, the last book in the Lea series!  We’ve read all three of the books now, so I made a “review” of the things I liked and disliked. *WARNING!  This contains spoilers for the Lea books, so if you haven’t read them yet and want to be surprised, you should probably stop reading.*

All right, let’s get to Lea Dives In!

Things I liked:

  • The vibrant descriptions!  (I love Lisa Yee’s writing!)
  • Ama and Lea’s relationship.  Lea really looks up to Ama, which I thought was sweet.
  • Lea’s travel blog.  Just like Grace Thomas, Lea blogs about her adventures!  Maybe AG will make it on their website like In The Mix With Grace!
  • Camila.  Oh my gosh, she was so sweet!  I loved the way she befriended Lea.  And when she surprised Lea with the beautiful dress!
  • Lea facing her fear of the ocean.  Good thing she did, she saw awesome things under the sea.
  • Her dad.  He was so corny and funny, espiscally his “Brazil Nut” cap.  XD  And he was always so prepared, even when he fell off the cliff!
  • When Lea had the super spicy food at the restaurant.  It cracked me up.
  • The cover art.  So pretty!  I love the parrots.
  • Last but not least, the Darth Vader reference!!!  😀

Things I disliked:

  • Lea’s negative attitude.  Luckily it wore off by the end of the book.
  • Zac.  He didn’t seem to want to spend time with his family, and would rather be with Paloma, his crush.  Which brings me to
  • Zac’s crush on Paloma.  That was akward.

And last but not least…

  • Lea throwing her Grandmother’s necklace into the ocean as an offering to a pagan goddess!  It was her Grandma’s before she passed away.  And if Lea cares so much about the animals and the enviroment, why did she help with throwing baskets of junk into the river?!?  That was pretty bad.

Now book 2, Lea leads the way.

Things I liked:

  • Zac’s host family, espiscally Tomas!  He was so sweet to Lea and Amanda.
  • All the wildlife they saw.
  • Galo Louco.  He was funny!
  • When Lea ate larvae.  Lisa Yee did too, and you can go to her website to see pictures!
  • And my favorite part, by far, was Amanda the sloth!  Oh my gosh she was so cute!!!  🙂

Things I disliked:

  • How freaked out Zac got when Lea suggested he poke an ant’s habitat.  He said sorry later, though.

And now the last book, Lea and Camila.

Things I liked:

  • How Lea, Camila and Abby got along.  It was rocky at times, but better than some other books.
  • How they showed that even “unexotic” places like St. Louis could be fun and exciting.
  • How Lea doesn’t live on the East Coast.
  • The Coventry House.  The hidden room was awesome.
  • Hallie!  The whole search for and finding her was fun.  And she was such a neat carachter.
  • The photography, espiscally the two Hallie photos.  🙂
  • How Hallie gave Lea a compass necklace.  I know some were disappointed that Lea never got it back, but she got another one!
  • The girls getting frozen custard.  I love it!

Things I disliked:

  • Abby’s disobeying Mrs. Clark.  That was dangerous and disrespectful!
  • Abby not inviting Lea to the game.  I think this should’ve been handled by adults.
  • Of course, the fight.  But it was well resolved.

Overall, I liked the series.  My favorite book was Lea and Camila.  It’s not available for purchase yet, but my library got it early.  🙂  Sorry this was so long!

Do you like Lea’s books?
