Working on revisions for my middle grade novel.  ClementineReading Clementine and The Talented Clementine by Sara Pennypacker.  I LOVED these books  I think Ms. Pennypacker did a fantastic job creating such lovable characters- particularly Clementine and her patient, sweet dad.  The voice is very distinct and authentic.  The next of the series, Clementine’s Letter, is out in a month and I can’t wait.    A Crooked Kind of PerfectYou probably have already read A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban.   It won the Cybil, it’s getting the hype.  It’s well deserved.  An organ contest?  Neil Diamond? Lovable, but flawed and alive parents? Yes!  I hope kids everywhere pick this up.
