I gotta say: Tenners are awesome. What a feast of reading I had this weekend! And such eclectic fare!! I am completely inspired to write MORE and BETTER after reading these books:
THE DARK DAYS OF HAMBURGER HALPIN by Josh Berk. A Sherman Alexie-esque novel with a wonderfully funny self-deprecating boy voice. And tender too! DON'T MISS THIS ONE.
THREE RIVERS RISING by Jame Richards. Historical fiction written in verse -- do I have to say I absolutely ADORED this novel?? Great characters, and the story soars above the historical facts in a way I totally admire and strive for in my own writing. LOVED it.
The Naughty List by Suzanne Young. A FUN cheerleaders-as-spies story. I rooted for Tess all the way and will be interested to see what happens next in the series.
The Line by Teri Hall. A futuristic story full of imagination and suspense. I really did NOT want this one to end... and there's orchids! PAGE-TURNER.
