Well, I will be the first to post my most recent read.
I am currently in the middle of Ruby Electric by Theresa Nelson. It’s about a girl whose Dad disappeared five years ago. Now, Ruby lives with her Mom and her little brother Pete, and his best friend, a stuffed woolly mammoth. Ruby is the best student in her class and an aspiring screenwriter. But, things really start to change when the mammoth goes missing, Ruby is assigned a group project with the two biggest troublemakers in school, Big Skinny and Mouse, AND her mom starts dating a doctor.
Also, thanks Marcella! I loved Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn. I have already recommended it to two friends!
