Sure Signs of Crazy
Sure Signs of Crazy | Karen Harrington
12 posts | 9 read | 2 reading | 10 to read
Love can be a trouble word for some people. Crazy is also a trouble word. I should know. You've never met anyone exactly like twelve-year-old Sarah Nelson. While most of her friends obsess over Harry Potter, she spends her time writing letters to Atticus Finch. She collects trouble words in her diary. Her best friend is a plant. And she's never known her mother, who left when Sarah was two. Since then, Sarah and her dad have moved from one small Texas town to another, and not one has felt like home. Everything changes when Sarah launches an investigation into her family's Big Secret. She makes unexpected new friends and has her first real crush, and instead of a "typical boring Sarah Nelson summer," this one might just turn out to be extraordinary.

In honor of National Book Lover‘s Day, here is a bookish quote from one of my most favorite books of all time. It‘s the sweetest coming of age novel I have ever read, and every summer I laugh and cry my way through it like catching up with an old friend. To add to MC Sarah Nelson‘s astute observation here, I believe the best books, like this one, get better and better each time you read them. ☺️❤️📚

‪My summer is never complete until I‘ve read Sure Signs of Crazy by Karen Harrington, my most favorite coming of age story about a brave Texan girl who beats the summer heat and learns how to cope with crazy in her family. It‘s been an annual tradition for me ever since the book debuted. ‬

Sure Signs of Crazy has so many great quotes! This week I'm sharing a few of my favorites by 12-year-old MC and first-person narrator Sarah Nelson, who is a keen observer. This quote is such a warm fuzzy! 😊❤️

If soul mates could be books, this would definitely be one of my best soul sisters! I love this coming-of-age book so much that I read it every summer (this is my fifth time), and every single time I laugh, I cry, I get warm fuzzies, and I love it even more. The heroine, Sarah Nelson, is as real to me as Atticus Finch is to her. What's not to love about someone who writes confessional letters to a fictional character?

This sweet, mid-grade book is told from the perspective of the girl who survived when her mother tried to drown her as a baby. As Sarah is growing, she is scared she'll inherit her mother's "crazy" and writes letters to Atticus Finch, the father her own drunken dad will never be. I loved this story!

I just watched BOOKSANDBULLSHIT's April book haul, and I've been inspired to check out Sure Signs of Crazy, about a girl who writes Atticus Finch to try and understand her mentally ill mother.

Megabooks I really enjoyed this book! I love adult books with juvenile narrators. 4y
LinaLovesLit @Ebooksandcooks Thanks for your comment. I'll have to find this book soon. When he mentioned To Kill a Mockingbird, I knew I had to give this a try! :) 4y
