My companion during #schoolpickup this week. A beautifully written and touching story of compassion, understanding, acceptance and the uplifting and supportive power of friendship. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Booked2019 #Booked2019Summer #diversemiddlegrade

4thhouseontheleft Great pick! I've read some of her books, but not this one yet. Would you recommend the audio version? 7d
Cinfhen I‘ve seen glowing reviews for this book 7d
throwmeabook @4thhouseontheleft the audio is full cast - not sure if I like that. I would have liked to have had the book to go back and reread some passages/lines that touched me. 6d

I‘ve only read one other book by Woodson (Another Brooklyn) and this one is just as beautiful. Woodson is a fantastic writer! #booked2019 #diversemiddlegrade

4thhouseontheleft Her books are fantastic! You should check out 3w
Cinfhen Definitely agree with both of you!!! Woodson is praiseworthy @4thhouseontheleft @OriginalCyn620 although I haven‘t read the tagged book yet 3w
BarbaraTheBibliophage I have to get to Brown Girl Dreaming also! @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft 2w

#Booked2019 #Summer #DiverseMiddleGrade

This book made me laugh out loud, and I would never have read it if it weren‘t for the prompt. It‘s set in a household with two fathers and four adopted boys, of diverse ethnicities. It reminded me so much of one of my old favorites, Shirley Jackson, and her memoirs about family life—Life Among the Savages & Raising Demons—households filled with chaos and calamity. This is an utterly charming book, and ⬇️

gradcat ⬆️ it would be ideal for middle-graders. Just delightful! 1mo
JennyM I‘m stacking for my 9 year old (and me). This sounds fantastic. 👍 (edited) 1mo

I really enjoyed this book about a family of Korean descent (not completely sure how to phrase that) moving into a haunted house. The youngest kid, Michael becomes possessed by an evil spirit and it is up to his older sister, Harper to save him.

Important book and topic to be out there. A good read for starting conversations. ❤️George. I thought the level of acceptance in this book was the really important message.
