Bookstore Browsing

Had a wonderful time in Blackwood and Brouwer Booksellers today and found some great teen historicals to add to my TO READ list.

The Red Thread by Roderick Townley : Crime drama played out over three lifetimes? Interesting.

The Loud Silence of Francine Green by Karen Cushman: How did I miss this one last year? I've read all of Karen's other terrific titles. The Loud Silence is set in 1949-1950 at All Saints School in Los Angeles.

Petals in the Ashes by Mary Hooper: Set in 1666 against the backdrop of London's Great Fire, Petals in the Ashes is the sequel to At the Sign of the Sugared Plum. Looks great. Hmm, should I read Sugared Plum first?

Fire From the Rock by Sharon Draper: Just released novel set in 1957 tells the story of Sylvia Patterson who is asked to be one of the first black students at Central High.
