Middle Grade Book Review by Maeve

From the Desk of Zoe Washington by Janae Marks is an inspiring story about twelve-year old Zoe Washington. On Zoe’s twelfth birthday she gets a letter from Marcus, the dad that she has never met, the dad that is in prison for a horrible crime. With the help of her grandma, she gets to know Marcus through writing letters and eventually she gets his side of the story. He says he is innocent, and Zoe believes him. She wants to help prove his innocence and get him out of jail. This is a story about forgiveness, trust, friendship, and family. I would recommend this book to anyone ages 12 and up.
