Boot Camp!

Todd Strasser has a way of just pulling you into his books and Boot Camp has grabbed my attetion! Can't put it down. Have you started reading it yet?

Anyone reading Artichoke's Heart?

Her Aunt Mary is driving me nuts! I can't believe her nerve and nag about "Artichoke's" weight. Can you believe it---she bought her a talking scale?

Audio Book: 3 Willows by Ann Brashares

3 Willows: The Sisterhood Grows [Audiobook]
Ann Brashares (Author) / Kimberly Farr (Reader)

Incoming freshmen at the same high school that the original sisterhood attended, Ama, Jo, and Polly are learning that falling out of friendship is an unfortunate part of growing up. They're spending the summer apart—uprooted—dealing with divorce, unmet expectations, and, of course, boys. Listeners will become involved with the girls as they grow their separate ways, ultimately realizing that the roots of their friendship have never really come undone. Review from School Library Journal

Kimbery Farr does a fantastic job giving each girl a unique voice and pulling the listener along.
