The Beast from the East…

…Side Middle School, that is. Big thanks go out to Mrs. Kennedy for inviting me to chat with her eighth graders who were entertaining as well as spirited. Props go to the fourth period class for knowing the absolute MOST about the Holocaust–you guys are gonna rock next semester! Here’s a list of the books I brought:

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes by Chris Crutcher

Rash by Pete Hautman

Silent to the Bone by E.L. Konigsburg

Born to Rock by Gordon Korman

And some books I talked about but didn’t bring:

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Thanks again for the visit! Hope to see you all soon!


Calling All Sisters!

For all of you who devoured Ann Brashares’ The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, good news is on the way! A fourth title to the series is coming soon…but you could win an advance copy before the rest of the world! Register at Sisterhood Central by November 19th and you could win a copy of Forever in Blue, the last book in this touching series.
