Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl

If you have read any of the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl titles this year, feel free to share the name of your favorite title and what you thought was the best part of the book.  

My favorite title from the list was Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper.  My favorite part was when Melody researches Stephen Hawking and finds out about the Medi-Talker.  Melody has hope that she will be able to communicate with others at this point in the book.  This part of the book was both inspiring and uplifting.

Please post your favorite book and tell about the best part.  I can’t wait to read what you have to say!

Book Review: Bird Lake Moon by Kevin Henkes

Mitch Sinclair’s parents are getting a divorce and he is having a really hard time coping with the situation.  Kevin Henkes, the author of this book, weaves a believable story with the right amount of details.  The story leaves you wanting to know more about what happens.  I highly recommend this one!

Have your read this book?  If so, please tell me what you think about it!
