Wednesday Words: Turtle in Paradise

..as in, I've got a book recommendation for you!

So.  I read this in an hour and a half.  It was my end-of-the-year-use-up-the-bonus-points-from-the-book-order treat that I gave myself.  Because really, who likes to pay the price for hardcover books??  Not me.

I love this author.  Love her!  She writes the kind of books I wish I would've had to read when I was 10 years old.  (Who am I kidding.. I was too distracted with my Sweet Valley Twins to ever notice any other books.)

I've made my way through her other books in the last two years and when I heard she had ANOTHER Newbery Honor Book out this year, I needed to find it.

Such a great adventure story.  I couldn't put it down.  When I came to last page, I kept flipping back and forth because I thought, "That can't possibly be it?!!?".  I was in Starbucks talking to myself when this happened.  I might've gotten some questionable looks.  I hope there's a sequel.  Sometimes she writes sequels.
