Educator Day at The Book Stall

My friends and colleagues at The Book Stall in Winnetka, IL hosted another successful educator event yesterday. While I think I’m up to speed on middle grade reading they never fail to surprise me. Thanks to their recommendation, on my short list is The Unwanteds series by Lisa McMann. The first two books, The Unwanteds and Island of Silence are currently out. Kirkus Reviews described this middle grade dystopian fantasy series as “Hunger Games Meets Harry Potter.” That was enough of a recommendation for me. With the popularity of the Hunger Games franchise, I have a number of lower grade readers asking for it. I’m thrilled to have an age-appropriate recommendation. Book #3 of the seven book series is slated for release this fall.

I don’t pick up a lot of YA fiction, but now on my short list are two recommendations — Just One Day by Gayle Forman and Lovely, Dark and Deep by Amy McNamara. When you have such knowledgeable book sellers making the recommendations, you can’t go wrong. Oh, so may books and so little time. :-)
