I‘m gonna preface this with saying I am such a bad person! I totally forgot to tell you @mklong that I sent this out to you last week, I hope you got it (the tracking said it‘s delivered).
This book was amazing and I can‘t wait to see what you think. So sorry I didn‘t post sooner!!!

Not sure I liked this. There were several storylines running in parallel that didn‘t seem to make sense. What should have been the main storyline got hit right in the last ten pages (and it was HEAVY) and left me feeling lost. The rest of the book was rather saccharine, and all of a sudden, BAM, police brutality!

Only a few pages in but already in love with this book - it‘s not ideal for a road trip, though, because it begs to be read out loud ...

Always have a book on my register, especially on slow days like today! Just started People Kill People. I thought it would be more in verse like her other books (and therefor easier to sneak a read) but this one is a combo of verse and actual paragraphs #tmskellington #wintergames

This #NovelInVerse is set in 1972 as schools in Houston are integrating, but that is mainly background to the personal trauma of a family dealing with the death of one of their own. It touches on many tough topics, but in the end, I felt it tried to do too much. I had to reread carefully to figure out certain details with some historical background, and I‘m not sure most #middlegrade readers would catch and understand all of them.

Lifeboat 12 | Susan Hood

This is the second book in a row I‘ve read about children leaving (or attempting to leave) Europe in the wake of WWII. This historical fiction is based on the stories of survivors of a ship carrying English children that was sunk by a German U-Boat. It is written in verse and clearly conveys the experiences of one of those boys while on a lifeboat in the Atlantic. At the end there‘s also a section of photos.

I started and finished this book today. It's a story about loss and how it can make or break a family. Unfortunately in this case the loss of London's brother leaves the family quite broken. It was a very good story but I found the writing slightly cringey at times. 📖
3.8/5 😊
