Heading into this summer I gave out a SUMMER VACATION IS FOR READING postcard to each student.  You know why? It gets ME excited, and is cool for the students who decide to respond. I tried not to count–or take personally–the postcards that were dropped on the floor or in the classroom or hallway accidentally left behind.

I’ve recently received the 4th and 5th postcards.

Ladies before gentlemen (and Dylan is chivalrous anyways), so I bring to you… Julia’s 3 books:

For Windy, nothing ever changes. The mean girls at school are still mean, and Windy’s best friend, Elena, is still more interested in making up words than talking about boys. Then a new girl, Nina—impossibly cool, confident, and not afraid of anyone—starts hanging out with Windy! But her friendship comes at a dangerous price. Windy wants to change everything about her life…but is she really willing to give up everything in the process?

Scholastic has this discussion guide available on its website. The topic can be a bit scary–it scares ME. I’m glad there are resources to help kids work through the issue.


You can hear Ms Cooner read the first chapter of her book HERE… and also hear her talk about her personal insights into the book HERE.

{I LOVE that Julia snuck in an extra. That’s what I’M talkin’ about.}

In Cia’s dystopian society it’s an honor to be chosen for The Testing.  But it’s not enough to pass the Test. Cia will have to survive it.

How great is this series? I’m thrilled that Dylan read it…and if hes like me, he’s eagerly anticipating book three. First, the trailers (which honestly, I don’t love):

Did you know that Lu makes a playlist for her books? Click on this  from her site:
