We had a book fair this past week, always have one during parent conferences... It was a Buy One, Get One Free.....Good deal! So I bought a book for each of my students! They picked them out, they had to be less than $6 and it had to be a narrative book....check them out
and one of my favorite books...
I am trying to read that second knit book: A Knit Before Dying by Sadie Hartwell
"Not that there had been any secret about that--the moving truck parked on Main Street had been as conspicuous as a rhinoceros at a tea party, even in Dorset Fall's moribund downtown, and it had been clearly visible from the general store, where most Dorset Fall-its congregated at some point or another."
That's a 53 word sentence!!!!
And she says the same thing twice...all of Dorset Falls saw the moving truck.....And again I'm thrown off by the whole "she's from New York and this is a small town, that is not NYC" The author mentions MANY times that the main character is from New York....so again, I want to like it...and I'm reading the second book, but I doubt I'll read any other things she might write....
