THE SIMPLE ART OF FLYING by Cory Leonardo -- A parrot who writes poetry. Need I say more?
THE BRIDGE HOME by Padma Venkatraman -- Kids making it on their own -- and making discoveries about themselves -- in a tough world. A good one to pair with the movie SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE.
TO NIGHT OWL FROM DOGFISH by Holly Goldberg Sloan and Meg Wolitzer -- I'm a sucker for an epistolary novel, what can I say? (This one told in email.)
THE LINE TENDER by Kate Allen -- This book got like a zillion starred reviews... I learned what a line tender is (both realistically and metaphorically), and the shark drawings inside are gorgeous!
I loved The Bridge Home, both heartbeaking & amazing to read about those kids' surviving. The others are new to me, Irene. Thanks!ReplyDelete
