want a personalized list of book recommendations? click ask & tell me about what you've been reading lately / what you'd like your list to cover. i'll then make you a list of at least ten books with short descriptions and (hopefully) links to longer reviews by me. i'm a children's librarian so kids'/YA books are my strong points, but i'm more than happy to give adult books a shot, too.
Book Review: Unlocked
When you’re the janitor’s kid, you don’t have many friends. You don’t have any friends. Andy is no different, but when he hears a rumor that the school outcast, Blake, has a gun in his locker, he decides to make friends with Blake. When the boys do become friends, Andy must choose between protecting his only friend and protecting a school full of kids who could care less about him?
