It's been a long while since I read the Crossover, but that doesn't matter. This prequel focuses on the father in that book and his own struggles, and while it's perfectly geared towards middle graders, there are some scary but realistic scenes.

This is an important book for kids to learn about present-day Syria, but also felt a little too much like an information dump on too many occasions. It also has a plot strangely reminiscent of Anna and the Swallow Man, though I'm sure that's coincide ...more

I guess "funny" is in the eye of the beholder, because I found

Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
"I am not sure I would have finished this novel if I had not been listening to it on audio -- what astoundingly self-absorbed and awful characters! Sure, that's partially the point; it's also not very fun to read."
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
"Wow. Wow. Wow. I really loved this book! I liked it even better than her first novel made you up! It was so beautiful with all the art work in it, and it actually got pretty dark! There just aren't many things I can say about it besides that I rea..." Read more of this review »

Wow. What a powerful book about an incredibly little known story.

The book is divided into thirds. First, we meet the characters who hang out at the bar, including the church for gay Christians that worshipped there.

The middle third is the fire. And
