Love to Everyone is about Clarry Penrose, a girl living in the early 1900s. All she wants to do is go to school and go swimming with her brother, Peter, and cousin, Rupert. This isn’t much of an option for her since she is a young girl with a father who doesn’t believe girls deserve to do these activities. When Clarry’s two brotherly figures both leave, she is left on her own to figure out the world. Peter goes to a good school, which is all Clarry wants, and Rupert enlists in the army, with all of its dangers. She must face what is coming, for this might be her only chance to tell the world not to stand in the way of her dreams and desires.
This book doesn’t have the same type of action as a lot of books, but it has a feel-good message about role models. I loved the family aspect of this book, although it was a slow-moving storyline. I liked Clarry’s persistence and how she was an inspiring character because of the goals she set for herself. Along with this, I also enjoyed how it shared a lot of details so I could follow along in her journey of figuring out life. But this book is predictable. Overall, Love To Everyone gave me a feeling of empowerment thanks to Clarry’s determination to do what everyone thought was impossible.
