    I HAVE LOTS OF FEELINGS RIGHT NOW. But to try and sum this up for a neat little mini-review with my thoughts, I really liked THE SOMEDAY SUITCASE. I fell in love with Clover, with Danny, with their families. I enjoyed the progression of the story, even though it's a little bit of a slow starter. And it made me very emotional by the end, so. yeah, read this one. It's so good, y'all.

    ARC provided by publisher at ALAClover and Danny are always together, and even their families spend time hanging out on Sundays. Clover's father is frequently away driving a truck, and her brother Jake is high maintenance due to some of his autistic qualities. When Danny becomes ill, and the doctors have trouble figuring out what is wrong with him, Clover is very worried. She makes him her science fair project and keeps careful track of his symptoms. The two find a clinic online that promises so [...]

    I was lucky enough to read an early draft of this book, and I'll just say this: Corey keeps getting better and better. Pure magic.

    When I heard that Haydu was writing another MG book, I was immediately excited. I hadn't read her first foray into children's literature back in November 2016, but seeing this on after a drive to St. Louis for Thanksgiving sent a little thrill through me. The Someday Suitcase sounded absolutely magical, and I was ready to dive into it at a latter point.After reading Rules for Stealing Stars as 2016 faded and 2017 started, I found a good book. It wasn't the best, as some of the characters weren' [...]

    3.5 stars rounded upThere was a lot that I loved about The Someday Suitcase. The supportive parents were great. Jake's autism and the effect it had on others felt genuine. The connection between Clover and Danny's friendship and the concept of symbiosis was amazing. The snow globe symbolism was powerful.At the same time, some things felt off. It seems unlikely that two friends like Clover and Danny would recognize and appreciate their bond. There was a detail at the end that seemed totally out o [...]

    Heartbreaking, emotional, and so many feelings in this book. Honestly, it was almost too much for me, but it’s a powerful story about friendship, hope, and the power of things both explained and unexplained.

    Clover and Danny are closer than best friends. What do fifth graders do when one gets sick and one wants to fix it? Read this beautiful and powerful story of true friendship!

    Lovely book about the enduring power of friendship and the belief in love, friendship, and the power to cure. Well-written, and nice characterization. Particularly loved the science angle.

    A good book, deals with a hard topic (death of a best friend) in a helpful way. It's not really my kind of thing, but I'm glad to know it exists.

    I read this book with an 11 year old child and we both really liked this book. I was so happy we picked it up. This is the story of Clover and Danny who are best friends. They have been best friends piratically their whole lives and cannot live without each other. Now that they are in 5th grade they can't wait for all the fun things that await them this school year. Everything is fine until one day Danny gets sick. He becomes sicker and sicker until Danny is not able to go to school. Clover love [...]

    Another beautiful middle grade book from CAH Clover and Danny have a powerful friendship but when Danny's mystery illness threatens it, Clover puts herself on the case to figure out how to make him better. She wants to be a scientist, she believes in the facts but also the magic of the subject. I loved this the most about her. As someone with two best friends who are marine biologists, I saw a lot of both of them in this characters. She was extremely loyal, thoughtful, and curious and while it w [...]

    Ah, the land of childhood. A world everyone's visited and a few remember. Haydu reminded me of me as a kid. Laughing at anything and everything, making up silly games,living in our own world and more.Clover's characterization is charming. She is fascinated by science and believes above everything that she and Danny aresymbiotic . I can totally see a 10 year old coming up with something as magical as that. She holds on to her theory of symbiosis with the tenacity you would expect in some one so y [...]

    This is the story of eleven-year-olds Clover and Danny. They've been best friends forever, do everything together and essentially don't exist without each other. No, I'm serious. This is written in first-person point-of-view of Clover, but every other sentence begins with "Danny." At one point, Clover casually remarks that she forgets "I'm a person in a body" without Danny around. Their friendship had some really sweet moments and it's clear how important they are to each other, but the co-depen [...]

    This book was wonderful and heart-breaking for me. I picked it up just because I liked the cover, and I thought if I picked it up one of my kids would read it. But they didn't, and it was time to return it. I didn't return it; I renewed it and started it today. It is a book about a friendship, where the boy gets an autoimmune disease. Being autoimmune myself, and just now starting to see symptoms of it again, this book became highly emotional for me. But so, so sweet. Quotes:"Sometimes all adult [...]

    Clover and Danny have been neighbors and best friends their whole lives, so when Danny gets sick, scientific Clover starts keeping a notebook to study his condition. She finds that her presence is what makes Danny feel better, but she can't stay by his side every moment. They hatch a plan to stow away in Clover's dad's truck to Vermont, to a clinic one of Clover's friend's moms told her about (and to see snow). The Someday Suitcase is a beautiful story of a symbiotic friendship - Clover and Dann [...]

    This is a good story,very moving about two children who are very best friends who do everything together and like it that way, they complement each other and compensate for one another's weaknesses.It's about a magic that seldom happens but is profound when it does. It is also a sad story but with a kind of beauty of its own. To find out more you will have to read it. I think while its sad you may enjoy it as much as I did. I read it in actual book form not the kindle version but pretty sure its [...]

    I choose way to much of books to be rated five stars. Honestly though, this book deserves it. This is another beauty by Corey Ann Haydu. While there is happiness and joy, sadness can overtake you too. When I first read this book, I cried when (I'm not telling you! You have to read the book!) I just sat in my bed thinking about what had just happened. Corey Ann Haydu is one of the very few authors that can bring emotions to your face. She did a fabulous job writing this book, and I definitely rec [...]

    The symbiotic relationship between Clover & Danny is rare and strong. Like the eel and the shrimp that cleans its teeth on their aquarium field trip, the two friends are polar opposites, but together they are wholly perfect. Until Danny becomes gravely ill with a puzzling auto-immunodeficiency. Clover goes into full-on scientist mode, recording his symptoms, expressions, and interactions. Suddenly, she realizes the data points to the discovery that her being near Danny actually makes him bet [...]

    Clover and Danny are best friends. They compliment each other perfectly. Everything is great until Danny falls ill, Will signs that he might not get better. A story of friendship and hope in the face of illness.I wasn't a huge fan of this one. I thought it was just completely depressing the entire time I was reading it. I feel like I've read better MG grief stories, but for younger readers that connect with those stories this would still be a decent addition to an elementary school library.

    Ooh this book has lots of feels and will definitely find an eager middle-grade audience (there's a huge chunk of them that love sad stories). Didn't hit me quite as hard as expected, maybe because the ending felt like a bit of a foregone conclusion. I also didn't love the moments where Danny spouted philosophical - it felt a little trope-y for me. But Clover's feelings definitely come right off the page.Thanks to the publisher for a digital advance reader's copy, provided via Edelweiss.

    3.5 stars. Absolutely heartbreaking. But it's a little bit too "YA" for the middle grade audienced the main characters are more like teens or adults than 10-11 year olds. It's hard for me to deal with saccharine sappiness in general, but it was extra difficult when combined with a semi-unrealistic portrayal of not one, but two kids. Other than that sticking point, it was a lovely story. I would recommend to upper middle graders looking for tear jerking dramas.

    Danny and Clover were forever friends. This book was filled with magic and the promise of friendship. Danny is sick and Clover is his cure. Every time Clover is around Danny feels better. Clover has made Danny her science project and is sure to fix him. Their someday suitcase is packed for a trip up north for a snow adventure. What lies in store for these two friends is surprising, heartbreaking and life changing. Grades 4-6. Some heavy situations. Recommended Purchase.

    "I hate that feelings seem to happen whether or not I want them.""It's hard when we don't understand something. But there are a lot of mysteries in the world.""Sometimes I hope for things that will never, ever happen. Sometimes I can't help but hope for impossible things.""Rachel says magic comes and goes, and mine is getting weaker, but love is always there. If magic is love with a twist, and the magic goes . . . Love remains."

    "We know each other well enough that he should be flat out of questions, but he never is. It's one more thing I love about Danny. That he is curious about me in an endless, infinite kind of way. That he is cataloging my answers and making me feel like a more legitimate person. If I can answer all his questions, maybe I'll know exactly what kind of girl I am."

    Story is beautiful but I dreaded reading it to end. The magic between Clover and Danny is beyond beautiful. Danny comes down with a mysterious illness and Clover wishes with all her heart she can fix him. The reader is brought along with Clover on her inspiring yet painful journey of letting her best friend go. If you need a story about losing a loved one, you found one right here!

    It feels like a lot of "sick kid" books are coming out this year. And while each has had a unique and genuine spin I must say I am getting a little tired of the theme. with that being said, this one brought in an the idea of love, magic, and friendship. I liked the voice and the perspective. (even though its ANOTHER sick kid novel)

    This is such a tender story of friendship and loss. I would suggest you read it with your child. The girl and boy have been close friends since birth and are suddenly caught in the middle of the boy's terrible illness. Sad story. One that will bring up questions. The children are supposed to be 10 years old, but I thought they seemed a older.

    Sweet tale about friendship. 10 year old Clover and Danny are best friends. When Danny gets a mysterious illness that his doctors can't figure out, Clover's love of science and Danny convinces her that she can help him heal. Would recommend to 9, 10, 11 year old readers who enjoy sweet and sad stories, set in a realistic setting.
