It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Thank you to Kellee and Jen at Teach Mentor Texts for hosting It's Monday!  What Are You Reading?  You can check out their blog for some great ideas for new reads.  I'm so glad to be back into joining this wonderful group.


I marked One Crazy Summer as a book I wanted to read all the way back in March of 2010.  Three years later, I finally got around to reading it.  It was a touching story about three African-American girls who go to visit the mother that abandoned them when they were very little.  The year is 1968 when the girls fly from New York to Oakland, California.  It's evident their mother still does not want them around. She makes them eat Chinese takeout, they're not allowed in her kitchen, and she sends them to the local center run by the Black Panthers.  The story broke my heart at some points and made me smile at others.  I'm so glad I finally got around to reading it.




I'm currently reading Rump, The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin.  More about that next week.

Happy Reading!

  1. It is a very sweet book and interesting to read for the way 'things' occur, isn't it? I think that a sequel is out, isn't it? Or coming. I liked the characters. Glad you finally read it, Julie! Hope your recuperation is going well!

  2. I really like Rita Williams-Garcia, though I like some of her other books better than One Crazy Summer. I've also heard there's a sequel, which I might try to read. Enjoy your reading this week!
