Titles I Can’t Wait to Get My Eyes On

Want to get some great summer reading in before we hear the annual ‘back to school” refrain from all corners of the media?  Here is a list of titles that are getting Newbery buzz that I’d like to read before the busy season comes crashing in.

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein.  Everytime I swear off WWII stories another one comes along and changes my mind.   Hopefully this will soon be on our shelf.

Starry River of the Sky by Grace Lin.  I’ll go ahead and put anything Grace Lin writes on my “must read” list.

The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis.  I’m tempted to wait for the audio book version for this one because his stories work so well in that format. I also adore the cover.

Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage.  Set in the South, this one looks like a hoot of a murder mystery.

Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead.  Stead’s follow up novel to When You Reach Me

The Lions of Little Rock by Kristin Levine.  A fictionalized account of a very dramatic and important event of the Civil Rights Movement.   

Happy Reading, Kathy
