Myers certainly writes authentically about the experience of – in this case – African American kids who just happen to live in a neighbourhood where crappy things happen. Ultimately though, this is a story about the friendship between two kids which unravels over time

A title that has been quietly gaining popularity is ‘Where the Mountain Meets the Moon’, a Newbery Award Winner by Grace Lin.

Available in both eBook and eAudio Book format. What will you read this summer?
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon -- Newbery Honor Book. Best kids book I've read in awhile. Amazing the lessons you learn from your kids.

Down the Rabbit Hole by Peter Abrahams. Like her idol Sherlock Holmes, eighth grader Ingrid Levin-Hill uses her intellect to solve a murder case in her home town of Echo Falls.
Again this is another one of my favorites. I read it first when I was in seventh grade and fell in love with the author. So Its definitely worth reading.
