really liked it
bookshelves: upper-elementary-middle-grade

Quiet, thoughtful story of two NYC middle grade loners Georges and Safer who befriend each other after Georges dad loses his job and his family moves to an apartment. Stead specializes in existential issues, layers of meaning and resonating associations, here, warm quirky characters, a spy club, nesting wild parrots, Scrabble messaging and painter Georges Seurat.

DaNae I can't wait.

Lisa Vegan I also can't wait. Unfortunately, it's not yet in my library's database. I'm going to have to regularly check for it so I can reserve it asap.

Clay I read a bookseller friends Advance Reader Copy. It's due out on August 7th, 2012.

Lisa Vegan Yes, I saw that you must have received an advance copy. Lucky you!!!

My library usually adds things to their database 2 to 3 months before publication date, and I have no doubt they plan to order this book, but it's not showing yet, so I did put in a purchasing suggestion.
