Youngest sister Joy has been largely quiet and in the background so far, but this book lets us see the tsunami of worries and doubt running through her head about her fertility struggles. It's heartbreaking, but in the best way. I love that this seri ...more

What do you do when you love your YA novel characters so much you want their story to continue into adulthood, but Ann Brashares is the only author to have ever successfully crossed that divide? You write a sequel about their teenage kid and sneak th ...more

August is not a great time of year to read a holiday novel, but I couldn't help myself. I loved the premise of the family with a Christmas tree lot, and I am always a sucker for boys who made one temper-related mistake in their past and have since pu ...more

What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi
"One of my favorite books as a kid (and it was old then) was "No More Saturday Nights" by Norma Klein, and I'm inspired now to find another copy of that and see how it holds up now that I've had a kid or three. I'm pretty sure the author of this bo..." Read more of this review »

"Actual rating: 3.5 stars. The concept of having different viewpoints (excluding the main characters) is really cool and Hall executes it well. I actually wish there had been a few less or fewer back and forths so we could have spent more time with..." Read more of this review »

I love this stupid book so much. An adaptation of the first 7 episodes with strict focus on the kids, it's a mixture of novelized scenes from the show and seamlessly added original material. Is it marvelous literary writing? No, of course not. It's f ...more

I heard about this title as a kid and meant to read it, but found The Trouble With Tuck instead and promptly forgot my original mission. It next entered my life as the Disney movie starring Alexis Bledel, which blew me away.

“But dying's part of the wheel, right there next to being born. You can't pick out the pieces you like and leave the rest. Being part of the whole thing, that's the blessing.”
Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

Marguerite Henry
“Why not dream your own wonderful sequels? When you have finished a book, it can go on in your mind, the characters doing just what you want them to do.”
Marguerite Henry, Dear Readers and Riders

“It's a very brave thing for anyone to do, offering love to another person. We make ourselves so vulnerable when we do it, don't we? We give that other person such power to hurt us and to rob us of our dignity. No one should ever belittle that gift, nor the giver.”
Lynn Hall, The Giver
