When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
When You Reach Me

Sonicka, November 8, 2009

I loved this book! I generally read a lot of fantasy and sci fi when I read juvenile fiction, and I struggle to read something more realistic. This had that little touch of sci fi that I like, but with a good dose of realism. I teach middle school and will definitely be suggesting it to my students right away!

Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

I teach Middle School and these books are very popular right now. I have great success getting more reluctant readers- especially girls- interested in this series. They are full of action, but also address the issues of what some call "looksism"- how we treat people based on how they look. What's more important, to be pretty on the inside, or the outside?
