Well, when I started out, I guess I had some really huge plans for this blog and they all got away from me. So, almost a year later, I will start over and begin by blogging about the last great YA book I read. My daughter and I just finished reading The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry, which we both found to be absolutely hysterical. Though she is 8, she has what I consider a very developed sense of dry humor and found humor in many references in the book. I was surprised. Though this book is a far cry from The Giver in terms of genre, I admire the satirical way Lowry has used common themes from all kinds of classic literature.
On my nightstand:
The Zookeeper's Wife (to finish)
The Forgotten Desert Mothers
