Praise: A Spring 2016 Kids' Indie Next List Top 10 Pick! Named one of Publishers Weekly’s Most Anticipated Children’s and YA Books of Spring 2016 « “Condie ( Matched ) strikes a deep emotional chord with this coming-of-age story.” – Publishers Weekly , starred review « “Multiple, seemingly random details, including a family of turkey vultures that now roost outside Cedar’s window, an absurd soap opera narrative of a woman buried alive, and Leo’s quest for a trip with his father, coalesce into metaphors that help Cedar make sense of her grief and the life she now has to look forward to. Thoughtful, poetic chapter endings guide readers new to psychological depth toward meaningful connections between plot events and thematic reflections.” – BCCB “A moving tale of friendship and loss. I loved these characters—I wish we could have been friends when I was a kid.” –Brandon Mull, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fablehaven and Five Kingdoms series

Last Week In Review (4)

What I'm Reading I'm only a few chapters into this book. I really hope it's as amazing as I hope it will be.  What I Finished Reading Review to come. I haven't decided if I'm going to review this or not.  What I'm Watching I haven't made any progress in watching Gilmore Girls this week. I must get back to this next week. I watched Pan with the family. It came out last summer, but I missed seeing it in the theaters. And after watching it on DVD, I'm glad I missed it. This movie was just okay. Not really good, but I've seen worse.  Levi Miller, who played Peter, did a decent job. The guy that played James Hook, was  way  over the top and very cheesy. The rest of the cast was okay. Also the pirate crew broke out singing Nirvana's "Teen Spirit." Which was different and unexpected. Have you seen it? What do you think? Reading Challenge Update I finished Beowulf !  New Books
