Hi everyone, welcome to this week’s post!! I’m changing things up a bit this week. The selection of titles are all from teen fiction reads I found interesting and captivating.

Hi everyone, welcome to the month of November!! This month I plan on featuring historical stories about families.

They all feature a group of young girls and the legacies they create for the generations to come.
Hi everyone, hope you enjoyed Scarlet Ibis as much as I did. Ever since reading it I have been avidly looking for other reads about autistic kids. I have had the experience of meeting a few in my time but didn’t get a proper chance to get to know them. These reads feature a main character who has autism and details their adventures!! Hope you enjoy reading these books!!Continue reading “Four more autism tales for you”
