Ann Burg and 3 other people liked Sam's review of Unbound: A Novel in Verse:
Unbound by Ann E. Burg
"I read Unbound in one night. It's an easy read, thanks to the verse and colloquial writing style that feels natural to southerners. But just because it's simply written, doesn't mean it doesn't have punching power.

Unbound is a beautiful, spiritua..." Read more of this review »

This story about freedom and family will stay with me for a while. It was particularly meaningful because the Great Dismal Swamp is not too far away from me, and I had not previously given any thought about its importance in th..." Read more of this review »

“Sometimes the words people don't say are as powerful as the ones they do.”
Ann E. Burg, All the Broken Pieces

“Maybe love is like
a monsoon rain.
When it rains
really hard and heavy,
it seems like
it will never end
and we'll swim in mud
forever.

But then the wind shifts
and the earth grows
dry and cracked.
Every gurgle and ooze
tiptoes away
and we're left wishing
and waiting
for rain again.

Maybe love is like that.
Maybe the wind shifts
and love just tiptoes away.”
Ann E. Burg, All the Broken Pieces

“Words are messy,
but sometimes,
words are all you've got
to show what matters most.”
Ann E. Burg, All the Broken Pieces

What Book Shall We Read in August?

I have chosen books that are getting a lot of attention, or whose authors have other Newbery awards, and were published in March and April. My hope is that a lot of libraries might have them in their shelves by now. Please let me know if you think a book should be added to the list.

If you get the chance, check and see what your library has before you vote.
