The story of the 1900 Galveston hurricane, mostly told from three points of view: Daisy, in an apartment building, the children of the orphanage, and Sam, a reporter. This is a very odd book. It reads like narrative nonfiction, but with invented dial ...more

Why I March by Abrams Books

Beautiful photos of the Women's marches all over the world. I wish this was better organized--shots from the US ended up in other continents' sections, countries listed didn't seem to have photographic representation--but the signs and faces of peopl ...more

Shelley and 5 other people liked Clementine's review of Kill the Boy Band:
Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky
"I can't believe this was published. Truly, I give up on life.

Apparently, I was supposed to find this funny.

Sorry, but the inconsiderable number of naming callings in"schizo", "psycho" and other delicacies that is just ignorance did not make me la..." Read more of this review »

“Lucky for you, I have another scheme. First I need a hundred ducks, but after that it will be pretty simple."
"What do you need the ducks for?"
"I´m going to put a whole bunch of them in a giant catapult and launch them over Aurimere," Kami said. "This will create a distraction. My message will be: Look at all the ducks I give.”
Sarah Rees Brennan, Unmade

Maud Hart Lovelace
“Was life always like that? she wondered. A game of hide and seek in which you only occasionally found the person you wanted to be?”
Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy and the Great World

“Do you like Moby Dick?" he asks.

"I hate it," she says. "And I don't say that about many things. Teachers assign it, and parents are happy because their kids are reading something of 'quality.' But it's forcing kids to read books like that that make them think they hate reading.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Jennifer Worth
“Bah! Suffragettes. I've no time for suffragettes. They made the biggest mistake in history. They went for equality. They should have gone for power!”
Jennifer Worth, Shadows of the Workhouse

Deborah Heiligman
“I wish you knew how I value you; and what an inexpressible blessing it is to have one whom one can always trust, one always the same, always ready to give comfort, sympathy and the best advice. God bless you, my dear, you are too good for me.' -Charles to Emma, 1859”
