P.S. Be Eleven

I absolutely adored One Crazy Summer, and I have been anxiously awaiting its sequel. The chance to spend more time with Rita Williams Garcia’s amazing characters Delphine, Vonetta and Fern is totally worth the wait. Like One Crazy Summer, this book is not only great because of its story and writing, but also because it lets the reader see the world in a new and bigger way. This makes us all better people. While reading One Crazy Summer, I was fascinated by the world of the black panthers (which put me farther ahead of the game in history classJ). This book was more about growing up and family relationships, but the time period and historical aspects still played an important role. I hope you all spend more time visiting Delphine, Vonetta and Fern, because it will be worth it!

  1. Those girls are three of my favorite characters of all time! Can't wait for the next one, can you?

  2. Last week I read Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. It is a retelling of the Cinderella story. I think you would like it if you haven't read it.

  3. Wow! Have you compared your writing to what it was a year ago? Almost as big improvement in how I feel from last week! Remember, I too love you to the moon and bank, a gazillion times the national debt. Keep writing. I'm waiting for that first novel.
