I am always reading books. Are you?

Here are some new books I’ve read and loved:

     

 

WINDSWEPT by Margi Preus:  Imagine having to spend your whole day inside!!  In Tag’s world, that is the state of things.  Youngers (children younger than 15) are not allowed to step into the outdoors.   Years ago, Tag’s sisters stepped outside – just for a minute – and the wind swept them away.  They have never been seen since.  Now it’s just Tag and her mom.  But Tag is determined to find out what happened to them and maybe rescue them.  She has been reading banned fairy tales and she knows that heroes can come in all shapes and sizes.  So one day, she does just that.  She finds a way into the outdoors.  There she discovers a band of fellow youngers, all looking for lost siblings.  Together, they will go on a journey that is filled with trolls, witches and fairies.  And it will test Tag’s belief in herself, her courage and her perseverance if she is to prevail.
