Adi's World by Jo-Marie takes readers to the Maple Community where the people living there are similar to us. The only difference is that they live inside the branches and tree trunk and whatever they use is made from parts of the tree; the bark, the pulp, leaves and veins running through the tree. This is Adi's world but that changes one day when curiosity drives her to explore the world outside. The story takes readers along with Adi to new challenges and life's lessons where the importance of teamwork and one's individual strength is highlighted.

I enjoyed the story for many reasons. First of all, the plot is refreshingly original and highly imaginative, making readers dream, think and imagine. It also has a good message that focuses on the importance of relationships in one's life and also how to handle the challenges that are thrown at them. The author creates a set of fascinating and vibrant images for the people living in the tree, where readers see them painted in berry juice and maple syrup. The author's descriptions are wonderful and fluid, giving color, pace and movement to the story.

The book has many positive messages for readers which is one reason I would suggest everyone read this. Adi's magical world is unique, different and exciting as it takes readers to an entirely different space and scenario. The healing power of Michael's Journal is another layer in the plot that is inspirational to readers and also to Adi.
