My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Swallowed by a Secret was a fantastic read geared towards pre-teens. The story follows Rocky as he is moved suddenly to a new town where he has to enter a new school in the middle of the year all while having just lost his dad. Risa did a great job at describing the difficulty of being the new kid and the fear and anxiety kids have. Rocky also finds himself questioning how his dad actually died and enlists his new fiend Olive to help him. Trigger warning for parents, discussion of mental illnesses using this book but Risa does a great job at addressing it. As a child who lived with parents suffering from various mental illnesses and having moved, I would have loved this book. Great job.
