First Grade Dropout
Audrey Vernick

It's a lovely starred review for Audrey Vernick's FIRST GRADE DROPOUT! Publishers Weekly thinks "readers will be won over" by the young narrator for his "self-awareness, timing, and raconteurship of a master monologist." They say "so effective is Vernick in conjuring the boy's blush-inducing, sweat-triggering embarrassment, readers young and old will probably find themselves flashing back to their own not-quite-forgotten moments of humiliation." Very true! Watch for FIRST GRADE DROPOUT on July 7th. Congratulations, Audrey!

Another Kind of Hurricane
Tamara Ellis Smith

We absolutely love when a debut author's first review comes in and it's starred!! Such is the case for Tamara Ellis Smith's ANOTHER KIND OF HURRICANE. Kirkus praises the "elegant prose and emotional authenticity." They say the middle-grade book "will make this title sing not only for those who have experienced tragedies, but for everyone who knows the magic that only true friendship can foster." Beautiful! Make sure you watch for ANOTHER KIND OF HURRICANE in July. Congratulations, Tamara! We couldn't be prouder of you and your fabulous book!
