Only two books showed up in my mailbox recently, but they are two books which I hold very close to my literary heart. I had the opportunity to read Something Like Normal months ago & fell in love with Trish's debut. I knew right away I had to own a finished copy. Look at the pretty!!! When it arrived I cradled it for a bit, then turned it over only to find Carla's blurb RIGHT THERE ON THE BACK. Oh my goodness. Carla is the one who first introduced me to Trish Doller, so seeing her words on Trish's book - just completed the moment for me.
That other shiny goodness you see, yup that's Kirsty Eagar's newest contemporary - all the way from Australia! I adore Aussie YA writers. There's just something magical in their words which captures my attention. After I devoured Raw Blue earlier this year, Eagar was put on my "instant read" list. I can not wait to share with you all my feelings on this particular piece. Holy crap.
