2.3.20 It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? FINDING ORION

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

{Celebrating the books we’ve read in the past week


the titles we are currently reading.}


The acclaimed author of Ms. Bixby’s Last Day and Posted returns with an unforgettable tale of love and laughter, of fathers and sons, of what family truly means, and of the ways in which we sometimes need to lose something in order to find ourselves.

Rion Kwirk comes from a rather odd family. His mother named him and his sisters after her favorite constellations, and his father makes funky-flavored jellybeans for a living. One sister acts as if she’s always on stage, and the other is a walking dictionary. But no one in the family is more odd than Rion’s grandfather, Papa Kwirk.

He’s the kind of guy who shows up on his motorcycle only on holidays handing out crossbows and stuffed squirrels as presents. Rion has always been fascinated by Papa Kwirk, especially as his son–Rion’s father–is the complete opposite. Where Dad is predictable, nerdy, and reassuringly boring, Papa Kwirk is mysterious, dangerous, and cool.

Which is why, when Rion and his family learn of Papa Kwirk’s death and pile into the car to attend his funeral and pay their respects, Rion can’t help but feel that that’s not the end of his story. That there’s so much more to Papa Kwirk to discover.

He doesn’t know how right he is.

If you like adventures, puzzles, and riddles, you’ll certainly like this tale—told from the point of view of a sarcastic middle schooler. Filled with quirky family members and oddball escapades, this audiobook will be sure to please… IF you’re willing to invest more than the minimal amount of time listening.

Let’s watch the first minute of this message from the author himself:

  1. David – I recently put in a reserve for Malcolm Gladwell’s latest – Talking To Strangers. It will take me about 9 weeks to get this Ebook – a testament to his writing and his popularity.
    Thanks for the heads up when we were talking the other week. I’m really looking forward to this read.
