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.
I saw this one mentioned on Unshelved and was immediately curious, especially when I saw a mention of a Shakespeare group in Southern California. Could it be Melissa Wiley? Spoiler alert: it was. But more than that, I liked Cummings’ memoir of her first year as a homeschooling parent a lot. It was funny, honest, and open to other ways of homeschooling even if, in the end, Cummings didn’t agree exactly with their methods. I also thought it was helpful to have someone who’s fairly mainstream articulate arguments for homeschooling.
