By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life - Wendy Mass Started on Saturday, finished today.

-sweet coming-of-age story
-I liked the interaction between Lizzy and Jeremy

-it felt a bit overly-didactic at times
-most of the characters seemed like they could be summed up by their defining quirk (Jeremy and the candy, Lizzy and the stealing)
