Ooh...Oooh...Ooooh...I love Friday!

Finished this little gem yesterday...sort of a middle grade Lord Of The Rings but not really...it was lovely...a family dealing with the death of their mom and a necklace sent from another universe that changes everything...takes place in Plymouth Rock and in another starry universe...parts were so sweet...parts sad...parts typically middle grade humor funny...parts just plain scary...I literally could not put it down!
It even had bullies...the kind you love to hate!




Thinking about reading this...or maybe this...or even this...











Yearning to make a cake from this yummy book...




Trying to win a staring contest with Lucy...




I lost!
Happy Friday!

  2. I so wish I could crawl into Lucy's head for the day. It would be interesting to hear her thoughts.

  6. I recently heard of What Came From the Stars. It sounds like a great fantasy book. I like the cover and look forward to reading it.

    Lucy looks like a tough opponent for a staring contest. :)
