let’s review: flipped

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Today’s entry on IMCPL’S Teen Scene blog is a book/film review I did on Wendelin van Draanen’s Flipped.  I’ve posted it here, or you can find the original review here.

the gilmore in us

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

So my momma came to visit for an extended weekend, and the phrase “needless to say” is perhaps appropriate when it comes to mentioning the Gilmore Girl-esque connection that continues to exist between us, minus the whole having me at sixteen thing (she was about twice that), and we don’t always talk as unrealistically fast [...]
