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.

Friend Is Not A Verb, Daniel Ehrenahft

I always enjoy books with a familiar theme, but with a different perspective than my own. The title of this young adult book examines the the "friending" people on that comes with todays technology like FaceBook, My Space, etc. I can relate because when I was young friend was not a verb either. It was a person, not something you do.

Daniel Ehrenhaft tells the story from the perspective of Hen, a teenage boy try to make sense of his own confusing life while his family and friends keep throwing him curveballs. Set in New York the story is warm and charming.

I've previously read and reviewed this author's book Dirty Laundry here.

I'd pick this one up.
