Audio version. A teen novel about the murder of a student, two girls who are affected by it and how they decide to find the murderer. Unfortunately, I couldn't relate to these characters, or their actions.

#HelloThursday @wanderinglynn
1. I‘m going to list several faves - A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Watership Down, and The Dark Is Rising

2. Hahah reading! Always.

3. Anything that didn‘t involve reading, but probably the dishes.

4. All of my books aside, I had a little pegasus whom I called “Gaudior” (See 1a).

5. One of my faves, anyway.

wanderinglynn It is hard to pick just one when there are so many wonderful childhood books! Thanks for playing! 💜 5mo
TobeyTheScavengerMonk LOVE The Dark is Rising and anything L‘Engle! 5mo
suzisteffen @wanderinglynn thanks for starting it! 5mo

suzisteffen @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Silver on the Tree got me addicted to Welsh when I was a kid, and for the last almost three years, I‘ve been learning it on Duolingo. 😍 5mo
TobeyTheScavengerMonk That‘s amazing. I memorized all the prophetic poems when I was in middle school, including the Welsh bits phonetically. Little did I know then that Welsh does not sound at all like it looks to American eyes! 5mo
suzisteffen @TobeyTheScavengerMonk oooh! I did not memorize the poems! Might have to go back and read again! 5mo

I‘m realizing I‘m a bit of a Woodson fan girl. Her writing is just so beautiful, observant, and sensitive. I can imagine some readers might criticize this story for the sexual orientation confusion of one of the characters, but IMHO, I don‘t believe it‘s warranted. They are adolescent girls discovering themselves, which we know isn‘t always clear or easy.

Rufus has an axe to grind against forced socialization and the characterization of serial killers and crazed gunmen as “loners.” Those people are, she argues, outcasts who seek social validation but do not find it. Loners are people who seek out time alone, often creative types. Some good, smart ideas here, unfortunately couched in angry writing, an “us vs. them” mentality that does a disservice to celebrating those who prefer time alone.

batsy It does sound intriguing, too bad about the tone of the writing. 2y
Thndrstd The tone is distracting but there are good things in it 2y

Forgot about #litsypartyofone so after my nap and starting laundry I finally got my coffee and my book going.
