Checking in on Teen Tuesday...




So I just finished reading My Most Excellent Year - A Story of Love, Mary Poppins, and Fenway Park. And I LOVED it. Growing up in New England and a huge fan of the Sox myself, the setting of Brookline, Boston, and other parts of MA appealed to me - as did all of the Red Sox references! I loved reading about TC - dealing with his mother's death, finding Augie, falling for Ale, finding Hucky - his whole journey was amazing. Augie was hysterical and having a gay main character was great - not something you commonly find in today's YA lit. Hucky and Mary Poppins - what a sweet storyline - and the ending wrapped that up so nicely. A definite read if you haven't done so already!


Next up is Bloom - recommended by one of my students! Thanks Gabby! Has anyone out there read it yet?
