Today is my son’s 12th birthday and he has been sulking all day. It may be because his teacher, whom he adored, was not rehired for next year. It’s tough when students get attached to their teachers and then the unexpected occurs. Needless to say, I had to vent that piece of my life, before I wrote this post — which comes with a heavy heart.
Here’s the short list of what I am reading this summer, and I must say the genres range. But I need MORE book suggestions, and am asking, pleading, and begging for suggestions.
