My name is Vicki. Currently I am reading Running For My Life with my 11 year old son and we are loving it! It is hard not to read ahead! :) The last book I read and loved and can't get out of my head is Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker.

The last great book I read was Seven by Jen Hatmaker...truly thought provoking. Before that is was a book about reading books, The Book Whisperer...another good one which affirms SO MANY of my long held beliefs about invoking a love of reading in kids. Would love to win and read your book. I'm not always a fan of fiction, but I've heard wonderful things and know you to be a brilliant word smith.

I recently read The Iron Mistress by Paul Wellman. A surprisingly well written and engaging historical fiction about James Bowie and the battle at the Alamo.

I am a 5th grade teacher that teaches students who are very below reading. Most of them are reluctant readers. I read Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin because I read as many possible middle grade novels as I can during the year they are published. I loved it. It was written from the point-of-view of an autistic child. I believe this was a great way to write the book rather than a sibling's point-of-view. The character, Rose, is very likable, and one begins to understand why she reacts the way she does. Also, the conclusion was great--I believe this is truly the mark of a great writer. I've read hundreds of books that are great throughout the entire book, just to be disappointed in how the ending is written.

The last good book I FINISHED was Pride and Prejudice. Though the 3 I'm in the middle of are showing great promise as well. ;) Currently reading Elisabeth Leseur's diaries, The Great Divorce, and When Children Love to Learn.
And-- I'm so excited for FRIDAY!!!!!!!
