Corn-Farm Boy | Lois Lenski

Pickpick

One of Lenski's regional tales set in my state, Iowa. Very dated (boys that don't work hard on the farm are called sissies) and lacking an overarching plot, it features vignettes about life in an Iowa farm in the 1950s.

This was a beautiful book that shows how amazing Middle Grade can be. The story and characterization were so rich. I'm eager for the sequel. The audio is beautifully narrated.

The language in this book is so beautiful. So much with so little.

Very much a product of its time, an intrepid Nicola stumbles across a mystery just can't resist getting involved. Fans of Agatha Christie's stand alones will enjoy this. Also, it wasn't written as YA, but I'm consider it YA.

This book is an example of how reading one story can open us to the stories of others. Excellent coming of age story.

This prequel to Rogue One gives a telling look at Baze and Chirrut and their relationship. This is a middle grade book but I found it as compelling as any adult novel.
