- I finished Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin and really enjoyed the story written from the perspective of a 12-year old autistic boy. Review to come this week.
- I also read a grown-up book, Sea Trails: Poems and 1977 Passage Notes by Pris Campbell, a slim volume of poems, prose, and pictures about the author's sailing trip down the east coast. Pris has the same immune system disorder that I have, and I was really impressed with her new book. I'll review it at Book By Book.
- The book that's been keeping me up at night this weekend is a new teen thriller, Num8ers by Rachel Ward. I've been carrying this compelling and unique suspense novel everywhere with me this weekend!
- Jamie, 15, continues with his personal quest to re-read the entire set of Deltora Quest series by Emily Rodda, an old favorite of his. There are 14 books in all in these middle-grade fantasy series, and I think he has only two left to go!
- Craig, 12, is enjoying A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle very much, but he's frustrated that he can only read a little at a time. This is a book he's reading for his Literature Circle in English class, and he's not supposed to read ahead of his group. I love to hear him complaining that he wants to read more!
- In between his assigned sections of A Wrinkle in Time, Craig is also reading The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett. He loves mysteries but says it's a little slow to start.
- I finished the audio book Northward to the Moon by Polly Horvath, the sequel to My One Hundred Adventures. I thoroughly enjoyed both of these sweet middle-grade audios and will review them here soon.
