Happy Valentine's Day
City Dog, Country Frog. The two develop a lasting and important friendship that forms, blossoms and strengthens when the city dog comes to visit the country. This book effectively and movingly deals with the lasting impact of friendship and acknowledges that, in the course of life, things change. The book is as beautiful as a lifelong friendship.
Halo. One of our 12-year old daughters, in search of a satisfying love story, picked it up and couldn't put it down. She read it in just two days. The book was written by a teenager and, conceivably, nobody understands teen angst and teen love better. It is the first book in a trilogy and I can assure you there is at least one avid young reader counting down the days until the next one (Hades) is available. It's got angels from above, young love, Dark Forces - a pretty powerful and appealing mix - with one of my favorite book trailers in the last year. Check it out!
