    Loved Girl in the Arena by Lise Haines! That was a seriously good story.

  12. Great books, hope you've enjoyed them all!

  13. Here is what you do: Pick a book a 5th grader would read (such as a Sammy Keys book) read it. Then on a peice of notebook paper write down questions (make sure you create the questions one chapter at a time) about the book. Read 1 chapter of the book a day with the kid. Have the child answer questions each day. Oh yeah you might want to read 1 chapter on Sunday so you have the questions ready.

  14. Great line-up of books. Meridian is on my tbr pile. Have an awesome reading week :-)
