Eugene Yelchin, at the California School Library Association Conference last week. I have a signed copy. Now I need to meet M. T. Anderson. What a collaboration these two talented authors came up with.
It's a dangerous world that Holly Black has created. The Faeries are cruel, power grabbing, step on weaklings and who cares world. Jude is our main character who has learned to fight, steal, lie and endure. I can't wait to see what book 3 has to offer. Would I order for the library? I think so. Maybe one copy. It's not a mainstream book but I think it will appeal to a niche group of students.

True story of the author's young life. She went through so much and endured loss of loved ones. This is an important read to help us understand what it is like to be a refugee. I'm adding it to my library.
Sometimes family is made of the community that you live in. Enjoy.
To adorable. I look forward to reading more of the story of Fox and his friends. This is a perfect book for elementary and for older students to read to younger ones. A welcome addition to any elementary library.

This is a fun wordless picture book. The relationship between the two grows before your eyes. I added it to high school because of the art work. It looks simple but it is much layered. The lines echo each other as the artist creates a relationship between the two characters. Enjoy.
A really great book. A retelling of Rumplestiltskin .... a vague version. A slight version. It's a great tale of how three women face adversity and overcome it. A blend of mortal world and a fantasy world. It's a good story. I think this would be great for advanced readers. If you like Lord of the Rings, enjoy.

I am buying this for my school library. How many people know what it is like to flee their home and risk their lives to find a safer place to live? And the kindness of people who will help others globally? I think in one who is working in the Oval Office should have this book to read.
There are many murder mysteries series out there. I'm adding Cork County Mystery on my list to follow. Enjoy. Travel through reading in your favorite spot and visit a tiny village and the people who live there.
I enjoy this series of murder mysteries. It's entertaining and clever and the characters in the book are fun to read as you find out who was the murderer and the motive. Enjoy.

Get married and manage the household and children. But Calpurnia dreams for more. She has a grandfather who includes her in their scientific observations. It's a good read. Enjoy.
