The world tilted for Elodee this year and now it’s impossible for her to be the same as she was before Not when her feelings have such a strong grip on her heart Not when she and her twin sister Naomi seem to be drifting apart So when Elodee’s mom gets a new job in Eventown moving seems like it might just. I'm not a huge elementary reader but I absolutely LOVED Corey Haydu's EVENTOWN It starts as a typical upper elementary read so its hidden depths prove all the profound Tragedy devastates our main character Elodee’s family so when Elodee’s mom gets a new job; moving seems like it’ll fix everything Welcome to Eventown A place where all the houses look the same the air always smells like roses and blueberries grow year round Where everything seems like the perfect summer day At least on the surface A dark secret lurks beneath the vine covered homes Every person who moves to Eventown has a session at the “Welcoming Center” After telling your stories—including the scariest most embarrassing your memories are locked away Never to be recalled But would you sacrifice your memories if it meant you could forget the most painful parts of your life What’s the price for perfection From the description you can tell EVENTOWN is basically a junior Stepford Wives On steroids The beginning is a little choppy but as Elodee's family enters EVENTOWN the story uickly picks up pace Like Stepford or its many counterparts Elodee is initially infatuated by the town's seeming perfection But soon she notices something amiss beneath EVENTOWN's impeccable exterior Why are there only three flavors of ice cream Why is the library entirely filled with blank books As with most elementary books the writing is simple However the plot isn't The unnamed tragedy isn't revealed until the very end and lemme tell you it'll leave you SOBBING Seriously THE FAULT IN OUR STARS is child's play compared to EVENTOWN Even writing this review makes me a little teary As a side plot Elodee and her twin sister Naomi growing apart is nicely explored Their differing attitudes toward Eventown is a great metaphor for their developing separation As you come of age you may be different from your twin or friends and that's okay Summary A must read

EventownA few odd rules and the houses all look exactly alike but it’s easy enough to explain until Elodee realizes that there are only three ice cream flavors in Eventown Ever And they play only one song in music classEverything may be “even” in Eventown but is there a price to pay for perfection and pretendin. From the start I could tell this book and I were not necessarily going to get on too wellThe book started by laying it on thick that something really tragic bad world tilting etc etc had happened to our narrator and her family I uickly got tired of being told something awful had happened but with no story development to go along with constantly being toldIt felt like the author was trying too hard to be profoundThe big reveal occurred too far into the story about 280 pages into a 320 page book I feel like the story would have had impact for me if I had known what it was they were forgetting instead of just constantly being told they were forgetting something Instead there was a long and kinda boring build up to the reveal and then the book ended almost immediately As far as the utopia of Eventown I thought it was underdeveloped I would have loved some world building and understanding of exactly how it all workedI do appreciate that the author tackled a subject not usually explored in middle grade fiction but I also don't think it was addressed enough for such a serious topic That is what happens when you wait until the end of the book to actually explore the topic

Think Stepford Wives for middle graders and you have EVENTOWNIdentical twins Elodee and Naomi are uprooted to the seemingly idyllic hamlet of EVENTOWN Narrator Elodee soon realizes that all the houses are the same down to the number of flowers in the gardens It never rains in EVENTOWN in fact everything is downright perfect Except that it isn’t Upon moving to the town memories are erased even good ones But Elodee holds on to important ones and she may just save herself and everyone elseI grew up on the original Stepford Wives the only real version IMHO based on Ira Levin’s or Rosemary’s Baby fame again only the original is the read version novel which spawned a few uneual seuels that could never spark the same magic In Stepford men wanted perfect robotic wife’s and replaced their brains with computersEVENTOWN’s creators had benevolent motivations to heal from traumatic memories Residents’ brains aren’t replaced but their memories are erased Naomi seems to relish life in EVENTOWN while Elodee the inuisitive and argumentative twin struggles to hold on I’m a sucker for all twin books fact or fiction Elodee and Naomi had enough similarities and differences to feel authentic My only criticism is that Corey Ann Haydu took too long to get to the meat of the story which at times moves too slowlyEVENTOWN is a fun MG novel
