What to Read

Because no one’s reading list is nearly long enough (ha!) why not add:

  1. Greenglass House by Kate Milford – Absolutely charming. A safe haven for all kinds of mysterious guests, the Greenglass House is full of old secrets and intriguing characters. Twelve-year-old Milo is intent on discovering the secrets of his family’s home, and with the help of some unlikely friends he will uncover mysteries he could only have imagined.
  2. Lunatics by Dave Barry & Alan Zweibel – Ridiculously fun and completely unpredictable, Barry and Zweibel send readers on a ride like no other with polar opposites Philip and Jeffery. Each page brings more comedic mayhem than the last.
  3. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie – With its wit, heart, and clever sketches, this book was eyeopening for me. It is based on some of Alexie’s own experiences and follows Junior, a contemporary teen growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to shape his own fate, he leaves the reservation’s school and enrolls in a rural, all-white high school. Provoking and well written, I highly recommend this book.

Happy Reading!
