4 🌟 This was such a fun romp At the start it seemed like a more child friendly version of Locke and Key. This book is about a blended family, and how even broken families can be fixed. Three kids are sent to grandma Lupe‘s for the summer. She lives in an old hotel, that has special abilities. It will take every member of the family to make this trip, this mission, a success. A great books for kids or adults.

Haven‘t been able to find anything that really pulls me in so I‘m checking this one out. #currentlylistening #audiocommute #audiodriving #readdiversebooks #weneeddiversebooks #ownvoice #pocauthors #blacklitsy #blitsy

MaureenMc I recently listened to this audio, too. Great story, and I really liked the narrator. 3mo
Louise How was it? 3mo
Chelleo @Louise I put it down. It was slow moving and I just couldn‘t get into it. I‘ll revisit it soon. 3mo
Louise Thanks. 👍 3mo

#readingwomenmonth #anumberinthetitle I read this years ago and it wasn't the sort of book I was expecting at the time but I found it a great read. I was kinda broken by the end as I think it was the third in a run of emotionally powerful books. #ownvoice #woc

Buddys_Momma This was a great book. She‘s releasing a new one this fall. 1y
Weaponxgirl @Buddys_Momma I didn't know that, I will keep my eyes open for it 1y

ephemeralwaltz Thanks for tagging me so I don't miss these! Sounds interesting. 1y
Andrew65 @ephemeralwaltz Not heard of this. @Weaponxgirl (edited) 1y
Weaponxgirl @ephemeralwaltz I never thought of tagging people into posts until you and @andrew65 did it for this series. I'm loving seeing what people are posting for this, discovering loads of new titles 1y
Andrew65 @Weaponxgirl The tags help a lot as in a busy work week I don‘t always have the chance to look at all the posts. 1y

I'm only a couple of chapters in but so far this is super cute and just the break that I needed from the adult fiction that I have been reading.

Now that was, indeed, an interesting narrative! The narrative may have been written in the language of the times, but even that had a hard time making this one boring. From slavery to freedom, to various sea voyages and disasters just barely escaping with his life and freedom. This was a great pick for my #LitsyClassicsAtoZ and for #BlackHistoryMonth #Diversity #Reading1001 #OwnVoice #Nonfiction2018 Definitely one we should have read in school!

Gezemice I think I need to read this. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice The language strives to make it boring, but what a life. Africa, West Indies, America, England, the Arctic, and back to most a few times. Very interesting about life and people during that time. 2y
Emily92Bibliophile I have been looking for another challenge to do for 2018 other than my Goodreads! Are there any other rules to #LitsyClassicsAtoZ? I have been wanting to work on catching up on my Classics- I am very behind @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 2y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Emily92Bibliophile There are 2 variations of AtoZ that I‘ve seen on Litsy this year. #LitsyAtoZ is hosted by @BookishMarginalia and you can coordinate your AtoZ list with any theme you like. There is a separate group doing specifically classics which is tagged as #LitsyClassicsAtoZ & you can wing it as you go or write up a list of classics for each letter ahead of time and plan them out. If you click on either # you‘ll see more posts about them. (edited) 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Emily92Bibliophile The main rule for either, is just to read a book for each letter of the alphabet within this year, and the letter must be the first word in the book‘s title (not counting a, an, The) or the first letter of the author‘s last name. 2y
Emily92Bibliophile Wonderful! Thanks so much @Riveted_Reader_Melissa ! 2y
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Wow, awesome! I had no idea! 2y

I LOVED this book and could not put it down! Amina and her relationships with her family and friends are relatable to young readers, especially readers who may be first or second generation immigrants. While the conclusion felt a bit rushed and too tidy, I enjoyed every moment of this book and would highly recommend it to anyone. #diversebooks #diverseauthors #ownvoice #muslimbooks

Smangela I love the cover! 2y
Chelsibno @Smangela When I first saw the cover on a Litsy review, I knew I had to check it out. I was so excited when I saw that my public library has the book! After reading it, I definitely want to add it to my Elementary School Library‘s collection. We have a sizable Somali population in our community and in our school, so I love it when I find great books that focus on Muslim characters. 2y
emtobiasz This was one of my favorite MG reads last year! 2y
