9/19 Nostalgia Review Round Up

This book really drives home how hard a disease juvenile diabetes is to live with. I really felt for Stacey in this one. Yes she did things that she knew she shouldn’t but who among us hasn’t? I was grateful that my parents didn’t divorce until their children were grown. I imagine Stacey’s life could have very well been mine. Overall, I think the important […]

Mallory makes a reader of Buddy Barrett and together they solve the mystery of the diary. Loved this book! I also really liked how Mallory worked with Buddy to make him a reader. I know that feeling and it is a great […]
