This week I continued to read middle grade novels for the Cybils, and to share with my class. I also had a chance to squeeze in another Young Adult fantasy.
Here's what I read this week:
Before, Ethan was a happy, healthy kid with a best friend named Kacey. Now he needs to learn how to go on without her. A heartwarming story about finding a way to move forward after tragedy
Sophie is one of the only black kids in a white neighborhood in 1967. She faces racism, explores friendship, and learns about love and family in this coming of age novel.
Flora and her brother Julian may have found a forever family, but until the mystery of their past is solved, they have a hard time believing in forever.
In this land of kings, queens, and hidden magic, a war is brewing between two kingdoms. Told from multiple points of view.
