LaRocca's newly released companion novel to Midsummer Mayhem is cute, fun, and will definitely make you hungry! I love catching all the similarities between LaRocca's fresh take and Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing!

There's so much to learn about sleep! In addition to understanding why sleep is important (and tricks for sleeping easier), this book also talks about the funny, scary, weird myths and histories across time and cultures. Bonus? You get to find out who sleeps in a snot-bubble sleeping bag.

Michelle Ruiz Keil has perfectly captured the dream-like quality of the dog days of summer in this tale that’s part Greek myth and part fairytale. She has boiled down both, leaving us with the truest parts of the stories, the love between two siblings. Reading this book is like watching a film shot in soft focus, and I found myself totally enraptured.
