  1. Hi Beth, Jerry Spinelli is an absolute favorite. I hope I can find and read Jake and Lily soon. Drama also looks interesting. :) Enjoy the rest of your 'reading' week!

  2. I loved Jake and Lilly - and so do my sixth graders.

  4. Our kids love Jerry Spinelli - I will have to check out Jake and Lily! Have a great week!

  5. I just started Never Fall Down about 15 minutes ago :) I hope we both enjoy it!

    Have a great week of reading :)

  6. Enjoy Drama. I thought it was a mature book with great theme. It's different from Smile (also by Raina Telgemeier) but features the same authentic voices and spot on illustrations of middle school life.

  7. I still haven't had a chance to read DRAMA. I feel like I must get my hands on it soon!
    NEVER FALL DOWN sounds fabulous. Patricia McCormick is a very popular author with my students.
