  • Three amazing girls

    5 Stars Three Amazing Girls Mab, Monday, and Mirabel Mitchell are triplet sisters who live with their widowed mom, Nora in the sad town of Bourne. Bourne used to be a lovely small town, but it was taken over and ruined by the Belsum chemical corporation, who turned the town's river bright green and left. Unfortunately for the residents, the birth defects, cancers, and deaths do not bring much hope for the future. The triplet's mom has been crusading for two decades to bring the chemical corporation down and institute fair compensation for everyone who lives in their damaged town, she has an ongoing lawsuit against Belsun and has a lawyer who works diligently to make the corporation pay. There is never enough proof, though. The sisters call themselves One (Mab, born first and the most normal of the three); Two (Monday, born second, she loves yellow except when it's raining then she loves green, she appears to be medium functioning autistic); and Three (Mirabel born last, she was brain damaged in utero, has brain lesions, but is the most intelligent of the three, a genius). As you read the book, it starts out the chapters, One, Two, Three, then the next chapter is One, then Two, then Three. The story is told through the eyes of the triplets, a chapter for each girl, all of the way through. At school, classes are segregated by body/brain type of configuration: Class A, your body and brain are mostly normal, Mab. Class B, your body works, but your brain mostly does not, Monday. Class C, your body doesn't work, but your brain does work, Mirable. The sad part is, that there are full classes for all three designations. Everyone has been affected by the pollution in their water. Nora's husband and the girl's father died, before they were born, the girls suffered birth defects, other people in the town have lost body parts that have gotten cancers in them. This is a fictitious book about how little people can fight back against a corporation. Because the Belsum company comes back and wants to pollute them all over again. Different parts of the book remind you of the movie ERIN BROCKOVICH, 2000, (non-fiction) as Erin successfully went after the energy giant PG&E and won, for the little people. This story isn't exactly the same, but it is enjoyable. It pulls at the heartstrings, for the suffering of the weakened residents of Bourne. Many thanks to #henryholtandcompany @henryholt for the complimentary copy of #onetwothree I was under no obligation to post a review. It has nestled itself right onto my #favorites' shelf.

  • Engaging Read

    I found this book very enjoyable and interesting while reading about the Mitchell triplets, Mirabel, Monday, and Mab who grew up in a small town of Bourne that was impacted by water pollution and how the event effected the triplets and the town. This story tells of the high hopes when a new factory started up in their town and then later when it was discovered it was the cause of many people getting sick. Then years later the son of the owner, Nathan, of the factory returns and the impact afterwards is explored. I found this story well written, the characters engaging in this contemporary fiction that I received a free copy from Goodreads and I'm volunteering to review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
