Finished both of these over the weekend...loved them both but I especially loved Perry! Perry T. Cook! He has been raised in a prison. His mom is an inmate. His room is next door to the warden's office. Perry is remarkable...bright and responsible and clever and just simply lovely. He is so happy until a DA comes along and doesn't like where Perry lives and wants him out of the prison! It's a sweetly sad story that had me cheering and crying for Perry! It's the perfect middle grade book for adults!
Firstlife was really good, too. Different and unique...with a great female leading character...Ten...she thinks with numbers!
