Thank you @NetGalley  & @henryholtbooks for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.

🔸One Two Three has several raving reviews. That is the main reason I wanted to read it. Sadly, I just couldn’t get into it.  Why?

🔹The book moved along very slowly.  The number of pages seemed excessive to tell this story.

🔹The characters didn’t click with me. I found them a bit dry. I almost imagined someone reading in monotone. The emotional parts didn’t feel emotional to me. I felt for them but didn’t get that “feeling” characters give readers.

🔹The triplets were referred to as One Two & Three, hence the title. The POV moved between these three characters and the chapters were labeled as One, Two, or Three. That makes sense because of the title, but I found it confusing. The girls had names, of course. It would’ve been helpful if the names would have been included in the chapter titles.

🔹The girls decide to solve a problem by operating heavy equipment & are able to use it perfectly in a tricky situation. Even with an impeccable memory from reading the instruction manual & experience with a joystick, it seemed quite unbelievable.

🔸There were good things in the book too.

🔹The story revolves around a pollution problem that affects an entire community. Pollution is a problem that continues to hurt the environment & the people & animals who live there. Even a fictional story such as this lets the reader learn about this issue.

🔹The townspeople are there for each other. Families love each other. Neighbors help each other. The townspeople have much in common.

🔹The town is handicapped accessible helping all those affected by the pollution.

🔹It shows how greediness & wealth can overtake common sense & doing what is right in some situations.

🔹One of the girls had mad love for the library & books. 📚 How could a book lover not like that in a character?
