Now Available!

These books were reviewed from ARCs and are now available! Go to your nearest indie bookstore and buy them immediately (if not sooner)!

Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine. (Grades 4-7.) Philomel Books, April 2010.

This is a moving story seen from a unique perspective. Caitlin and the other characters (notably Caitlin's dad, a single father trying to deal with his own grief as well as take care of his daughter) had me choked up in many different spots. But Kathryn Erskine has mastered that blend of humor with poignancy and I found myself laughing out loud in several spots, too.

I was able to get an ARC copy of this to read and was blown away. I pre-ordered it right after. One of my favorites of the year so far.

I agree with both of you! This book is amazing! Can it already be my favorite this year? or could it be that we're bless enough to know that there are more like this one coming our way??? Ohhhh...the possibilities!!
