Jim Flyaway by Kathleen Jennings

Megan I'm interested in some of these but their write-ups are so oddly specific, hahaha. Who is the reader who is on the fence about reading one and then reads "Atlanta, 1985" or "books set in Sao Paulo" and thinks, "Wait, SOLD!"

Becky They all look excellent!

I had the same thoughts! They don't tell you much about the books. I haven't heard of some of these before. The descriptions aren't making me any more informed.

FionaFF Parker Like this list of books, I've read several of them, and I can say that it worth reading. I even write some articles about Afterland along with Mice and Men, for the Eduzaurus essay platform. In my free time, I write for https://eduzaurus.com/free-essay-samp... as I like it, and also I like to help people. It's exciting to share my knowledge with others.
