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.

P.S. Be Eleven

P.S. Be Eleven - Rita Williams-Garcia

The sequel to One Crazy Summer. I liked a lot of it, especially the range of different attitudes and experiences that are portrayed (anytime the idea of a monolithic culture gets broken down, I am happy). However, I was really surprised at the ending, which felt abrupt and unfinished–not so much open as simply cut off.
