This reminds me of the TV show Wonderfalls. Loved that quirky show. This is a great quirky story. There are some words to be considered but it's a good story. It has a bunch of layers to it. I think it's perfect for the public library.

I'm getting this book for my high school library. My goal is to prepare my students in the world of money management. The more information they have and understanding as well as getting them ready for adulthood. It's a good read. Audiobook also good.
Even though I run a high school library, I still might get this for the students to think about their future. I know .... maybe not but I want my students to be ready for their financial adulthood.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. A group of friends who were golden in high school regroup and end up in a car accident. They are in a type of limbo where only one will live. There the truth of what happened to Jim, Bee's boyfriend is revealed. Interesting read. I think it's fine but a few gaps. I don't think it will fit my student reader's interest in the library.
Have you ever seen The Christmas Story? The one with the boy in a pink bunny outfit and a lamp in the shape of a leg? Did you laugh and laugh and enjoy watching a family as they go through life? Then you will enjoy The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt. He's a tricky author. He made me cry in Orbiting Jupiter. It's a good book. Should be in every library. I know I'm going to add to mine. The audio book also very good.
