"I read this to see if it might be a good resource for our curriculum work. I have mixed feelings about it. I feel that it glosses over a few things and could lead to alternative conceptions - for example, carnivores are always big animals (and vic..." Read more of this review »

This is sort of a sequel to Invisible Emmie, with Emmie being a returning character. I didn't take to it as quickly as the other book, until at least a third of the way through. Didn't jive as well with me. But your mileage may vary. It's still a nic ...more

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
"I'm one of the very few people who strongly disliked Thirteen Reasons Why, so maybe I should explain to you why.

“Lord Maccon was built like a brick outhouse, with opinions twice as unmoving and often equally full of crap.”

“You are a terrifying creature," the Voice told her solemnly. "You do not take your place in your father's tent, letting men make your decisions for you. You ride as a man, you fight as a man, and you think as a man --"

"I think as a human being," she retorted hotly. "Men don't think any differently from women -- they just make more fuss about being able to.”
Tamora Pierce, The Woman Who Rides Like a Man

“Scotsmen, she had occasion to observe, often did have nice knees. Perhaps that was why they insisted upon kilts.”
