Raymie Nightingale

Wonderful characters, great story, I was completely charmed by this book. It’s the summer of 1975; three girls meet for the first time at baton-twirling lessons given by one time State Champion Ida Nee. All have plans to enter the Little Miss Central Florida Tire competition, all for very different reasons. Is two time Newbery winner Kate DiCamillo on her way to a third? I think so.

Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend

There's no getting around it - Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend is a weird book. And before you ask, it's both exactly what it sounds like and nothing like you'd expect. I frequently found myself wondering, "Is this really happening?" while reading, but was won over by the novel's lyrical prose and surprising surrealist style and feminist themes.
