My list of books I have been meaning to read/dying to read is so long it’s pitiful. I’ll just offer a few samples:
1.) Unraveling, by Michelle Baldini & Lynn Biederman.
I don’t normally read Teen books, but this one is special– it was given to me by one of the author who was one an organizer of a conference I recently attended at Kent State. Also, the subject matter (a teenage girl’s relationship to her mother) is near and dear to me since I have three daughters.
2.) Franklin and Lucy, by Joseph E. Persico.
Yes, I know the reviews say, “do we really need to know all this??” Nevertheless I am still pruriently fascinated by the story of Franklin Roosevelt and Lucy Rutherford (also Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings). Even our great leaders have their weaknesses. Sounds like a good summer read.
I have more, but have to check my stash at home.
