I loved 90% of this.

Somebody Told Me by Mia Siegert
"I can't believe how long it's been since Mia Siegert gave us Jerkbait...but I'll be damned if this book isn't as good. Nay, it'll be better! At least to me as a recovering Catholic and a queer kid still struggling to accept himself fully. But I'm for" Read more of this review »

My Seventh-Grade Life in Tights by Brooks Benjamin

Absolutely delightful read with a lot of thought provoking commentary about dance--what is dance really about? What does dance mean? Funny, charming, incredibly clever. Kind of a perfect MG that encompasses a lot of themes subtly.
