I read outdoors last night. Casey chewed his stick. We were both content.

Except for how this really isn‘t Jenny Colgan‘s best. The bones are decent and I think the characters could develop well across the series, but there‘s a ton of fatphobia and the persistent notion that any progressive idea for schools must also be a ridiculous idea. I‘ll give the next one a try, but I‘ll only look forward to #3 if there‘s some real character growth.

I had retired from my 2-year temp job helping to run elections. Yippee, summer! 3 weeks later an employee called & asked if I would PLEASE return for the summer primary election & possibly through the November elections. Staff were leaving her to do it alone in the largest city in Vermont. I said yes. 😳 My reading will go downhill. 😩

This is a photo of kids picking cucumbers. In my teen years I laid on one of these for three summers, picking.

Jas16 Oh wow. I am sorry for the change in your plans but really appreciative of your efforts and those of everyone working to help our elections run smoothly. 1mo
Amiable Thank you for stepping up to go back! As @jas16 says, it‘s so important right now to have good, honest people working to ensure smooth elections. 1mo
Suet624 @Amiable @Jas16 Thank you. It‘s true…it‘s so important. I‘m really happy to help in this way. Just had some really fun plans in place that I needed to change. 🤣🤣 1mo

DivineDiana I too want to thank you for your commitment to help the voting process. It is such a crucial election. And that photo is amazing! What an experience that must have been! 1mo
Reggie Way to be a good citizen/friend Sue. 1mo
Suet624 @Reggie oh my word! Reggie! How wonderful to hear from you. Your comment immediately made me think of a Vermont punk band from the mid-80‘s that sang a song about being a good citizen. If you‘re interested, it‘s pretty fun. https://youtu.be/-nJzmxJejg8 1mo
kspenmoll Sue, I will add my accolades to you for your commitment to the democratic process during a time of discouragement. Wow! I never knew cucumbers were picked that way! 1mo
ValerieAndBooks At first I thought this picture was a crime scene 😳. Glad you‘re helping things go smoothly! 4w
Suet624 @ValerieAndBooks haha. Yeah, I can see that. 4w

What an interesting book. "Rumours and power plays rule this school and that's just the parents." This novel focuses over involved parents, the pushback from their children and the impact it has on teaching. This one kept me turning pages.

So happy to add to my rainbow the next two days with some middle grade graphic novels, I love seeing more queer rep at this age level and all of these were fabulous reads!

I have read Jenny Colgan‘s books before. This wasn‘t my favorite of her books. It was okay.

This was between a pick and a pan. It checks all boxes for a sweet English girl‘s boarding school series. However… 14 yo girls can be mean to a plus-sized classmate - I get it as a plot line in this type of story. I don‘t get the teacher thinking Simone could be pretty if she lost weight - ugh! I don‘t get the narrator often describing Simone‘s food consumption - bigger ugh. The fat-shaming just came from too many directions.
