OMG I read things not seen and things hoped for their the best. I think theres a sequal to that but i dont know what its called, Does anybody?

NathanKP said...

I'm afraid that the only two books in the series that I've read and reviewed are "Things Not Seen" and "Things Hoped For."

I remember when I read "Things Hoped For" that it seemed like there was bound to be another sequel, but I haven't had the time to check it out yet.

You might look up Andrew Clements at the library and see if there are any other books in the series.

I read "Things not Seen" LOVED IT! I was wondering if the book "Things Hoped for" carries the story of Alicia and Bobby?

NathanKP said...

"Things Not Seen" does continue the story of Alicia and Bobby to some extent, but Bobby has had to go to school in New York City while Alicia stays at home.

Check out the review for more information.
