Sleeping in My Jeans by Connie King Leonard
"Sleeping In My Jeans is a really good younger YA book. Recently I talked to the teen specialist at my library and she raved about this book and how much students have been checking it out. I’d love to see this taught in seventh/eighth grade classe..."

"This book was a quick read. I feel like it gave a realistic image of what homelessness and always living in financial fear would be like. I skimmed a bit just cause I wanted to know what was going to happen. "

Alain de Botton
“You normally have to be bashed about a bit by life to see the point of daffodils, sunsets and uneventful nice days.”
Alain de Botton

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Acknowledge that some moments are just plain awful―desperate and gloomy and painful and miserable and nothing at all but anguish. No truthful, cheerful thought in the world will fix it. So let me cry awhile. Don't try to find a sunbeam where a shroud of darkness encloses me. Let me mourn. Then, after the storm, when the tears have run dry and my eyes choose to open, I will look for your rainbow of hope.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes

Gail Tsukiyama
“Do you think a champion is made out of thin air? It’s through the hardships you endure that you’ll gain real strength.”
Gail Tsukiyama, The Street of a Thousand Blossoms

Mindy McGinnis
“It's going to be hard––everything worth doing is.”
Mindy McGinnis, In a Handful of Dust

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Sometimes all you can do is hug a friend tightly and wish that their pain could be transferred by touch to your own emotional hard drive.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes
