These Books Aren't All New??

Books are expensive. I tend to pick and review books that are both new & old. Many of these books you will be able to find on the shelves on your library as opposed to the front of your bookstore.

I believe that there are many hidden gems from years gone by & I enjoy highlighting those as well as today's best sellers.

The Notebook Girls, Julia Baskin, Lindsey Newman, Sophie Pollitt--Cohen & Courtney Toombs


This real life notebook kept by 4 freshmen at Manhattan's Stuyvesant High School is a great look into their lives, as they experienced it. The book is mostly un-edited and produced in the girls actual handwriting with drawings and whatever else they saw fit to put in it at the time.

Ending in their junior year the girls show all aspects of themselves from whiny to giving, likeable and not, the way we all really are in high school. It's a great summer read & one that's hard to put down.
