Pants and snippets

Greetings and salutations (kudos for knowing which teen movie that's from),

I just finished reading Forever in blue: the fourth summer of the sisterhood by Ann Brashares. All I can say is awwwwww. What a lovely way to finish off a series. I've grown to love and care about Tibby, B, Carmen and Lena. Their fictional future looks bright, and I will miss them lots. If you haven't yet read it, plop yourself on the reserve list to check it out! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, start here.

Speaking of Traveling Pants, you can enter for a chance to win a trip for you and 3 friends to New York City to meet Ann Brashares. All you have to do is describe in 250 words or less how your group of friends remains close. You have a bit of time, the deadline is March 12. Click here and good luck!

As for other good reads, I've discovered a Scholastic podcast that has excerpts from new YA novels. Right now you can hear a bit from The murder of Bindy Mackenzie by Jaclyn Moriarty, author of The year of secret assignments. This podcast is a good way to sample what's new and decide if you want to give the whole book a try.

That's it for today. Happy reading, and I'll see you at the Library.
