Fall has arrived! It is more noticeable in the evenings when we are feeling the cooler weather starting to creep in. As we welcome fall and wait for the fun holidays to arrive, there are a few other things that we can look forward to as well. BOOKS! There is always a good book to look forward to, and we have some great ones to share!
This month, we are reading Septimus Heap: Magyk by Angie Sage. While we are working through that, it is time for us to look ahead at what we are going to be reading next month. Time sure flies, and we want to be sure that everyone has time to find their preferred reading format.
Eleven-year-old Charlie Reese has been making the same secret wish every day since fourth grade. She even has a list of all the ways there are to make the wish, such as cutting off the pointed end of a slice of pie and wishing on it as she takes the last bite. But when she is sent to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to live with family she barely knows, it seems unlikely that her wish will ever come true. That is until she meets
Wishbone, a skinny stray dog who captures her heart, and Howard, a neighbor boy who proves surprising in lots of ways. Suddenly Charlie is in serious danger of discovering that what she thought she wanted may not be what she needs at all.
