The Literate Mother,

Last week we attended the Book Expo of America in New York City. It was an amazing couple of days filled with book exhibits from around the world, author signings, editor and publisher panels, and, surprisingly, Condoleezza Rice and John Stewart sharing the same stage. We picked up a slew of new books to review for The Literate Mother, many of which are advance copies that won't be available until Fall. We are excited to introduce you to these new titles that editors and publishers will be pushing once the kids go back to school, so stay tuned this summer for the inside scoop on what is up and coming in the world of young adult literature.

Our most recent reviews
The Last Olympian:Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 5 (grades 4 - high school)
Swear to Howdy (grades 8 - high school)
On Etruscan Time (grades 4 - 7)
Once Upon a Marigold (grades 4 - 9)
Beauty (grades 6 - high school)
Ruby Holler (grades 4 - 7)

Make some great memories this summer!
The Literate Mother
