  1. I haven't read any of them!! But, I've got them all out from the library right now :) Looks like some good reading ahead! Do you follow SLJ's Battle of the Kids Books in March? Both Anya's Ghost and Amelia Lost are contenders.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
