rockpools @dariazeoli what did you read? This is the first I've read as well. She's a wonderful writer, but some of it's tough going 😞 7y
dariazeoli @RachelO I listened to Mom & Me & Mom. You described her perfectly! 7y
rockpools @dariazeoli Think our library have that on overdrive, so I'll definitely read that later. So glad I'm finally reading her stuff. 7y
rockpools #hashtagfail #90sinjuly I know what the date is, honest! 7y
Cinfhen I also haven't read this one @Robothugs 😱#somanybookssolittletime 7y

#junetunz day 30 - #americankids

One I finish the Gombrowicz I'm halfway through, I'm gonna get back to reading this one.

Unrelated, the hammer was a gift from my Dad for when we get to work repairing the porch this summer.

Back in the olden days ya fiction was pretty limited but i loved Jupiter jones and his friends, they seemed like truly exotic American kids, i remember Jupiter used to read the dictionary. Anyway my copies have disappeared and ive not seen them in shops since.

Smangela I've never heard of these! Love the covers - seem very Nancy Drew/Hardy Boy- esqe? :) 7y

"I will not pee in the reservoir. I will not pee in the reservoir." Mostly funny, sometimes sad, always readable book in diary/letter form about a young boy growing up in the Bronx. Lots of baseball, and the occasional getting caught peeing in the reservoir. I think of baseball as men waving sticks while wearing long underwear, & I loved this book. All thumbs up. ? #junetunz #americankids @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Sounds like a great summer read 🤘🏼😎 7y
Tertubotn It is! That's how I read it the first time, schlepped it with me on vacation in the great state of Michigan. Easy to dip into, and most chapters pretty short. 🌞 7y

#JuneTunz #AmericanKids Ramona and Beezus Quimby and Henry Huggins from Klickitat Street in Portland, OR were some of my favorite American kids when I was growing up. Even though I was the youngest in my family, I was more of a well-behaved Beezus-type--but I wanted to be more imaginative, adventurous and even a bit bratty like Ramona. 😆These are just some of the books in the series and some of my favorites.

LeahBergen I loved Ribsy! ❤️ 7y
DebinHawaii @LeahBergen Me too! 🐶❤️ 7y

Anyone heard of or read this? It was on Powells list of Best of 2017 so far.Sounds a bit like Dazed and Confused:the Novel. ✌️❤️🌻🌈🎵
Fitting for #junetunz #americankids @Cinfhen
