Young Shannon Hale is young me. I wish I could give this to all later elementary girls. (And maybe boys. I don't know if boys have friend issues quite like this.) Friends are so hard then, but it gets better. Fabulous book.

I've been trying to lose weight and get healthier for a while, but I was stumped. I'd tried exercising more. I'd tried eating less. I'd tried a health/weight loss contest with my siblings. Nothing was really working for me. There are lots of diet boo ...more

The story of Helmuth Huebener is a tragic one. I've read other books about him before, but this is the first one that I've read from his point of view. I liked that Bartoletti went all the way through to his execution instead of deciding that that wa ...more

In the Days of Rain by Rebecca Stott

Interesting topic, but too much time was spent on the family history and not enough time on the author's immediate family's experiences. It was like reading a really long personal essay.

Intense. This book is intense. It grapples with some tough topics and has some really strong emotions, but it's still definitely a children's book. It doesn't take anything lightly, but it avoids becoming too serious. I'm not sure how the author did ...more

Douglas Adams
“Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Lemony Snicket
“If you are a student you should always get a good nights sleep unless you have come to the good part of your book, and then you should stay up all night and let your schoolwork fall by the wayside, a phrase which means 'flunk'.”
Lemony Snicket
