The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon

The Round House | Louise Erdrich

"We read with a concentrated intensity." I'm rereading for the Talks with Teachers discussion on FB. I love the way Erdrich tightly constructs her novels, making every detail relevant to story. The rape storyline is more relevant now than when published a few years ago.

Every Last Word | Tamara Ireland Stone

"Everyone's got something. Some people are just better actors than others." Do we ever really know one another or ourselves? We're all on a journey of self-discovery.

100 Sideways Miles | Andrew Smith
post image

"I am not the only one who's ever been trapped inside a book." Finn Easton has epilepsy and a horse fell from the sky onto him and he's the subject of his father's books and he's in love and he has typical teen boy problems. The answer? A road trip. Funny and raw and real. Good stuff.

There's a glow-in-the-dark picture in this delightful follow-up to "The Day the Crayons Quit." Sometimes we're all crayons trying to find our way home after life's challenges.

Early in "Divine Collision," the author tells the starfish story, a myth about the power of one individual to make a difference in the world, even if it's only to save one starfish. The story is a fitting metaphor for Henry's and Jim's narrative. Read via Sync audiobooks summer reading program. ***

"People just like to tell themselves stories about where they came from. They can't help themselves. They don't trust the world around them--it's too good for them, or not good enough--so they tell themselves stories about it."

Entertaining YA end of the world journey w/ friends. Important themes.

kgriffith Yay, another SYNC-er! 😊📚🙌🏼 4y
