November - Novels in Verse

We focused on Novels in Verse at our November meeting, and I was happy to hear how many members loved the books, even when they thought they might not. Here are the books that we discussed.
*SOLD by Patricia McCormick (SL county library has two entries for this. Lots of copies available under 2nd)
*BECAUSE I AM FURNITURE by Thalia Chaltas
Both the above YA books deal with sexual abuse although Natasha doesn't consider them graphic. Just a fair warning.
*WHERE I LIVE by Eileen Spinelli (short, younger crowd) (Oh, I wish I could draw like Matt Phelan!)

*LOCOMOTION by Jacqueline Woodson (beautiful book)

I'll have to look into these! It's embarrassing to admit, but I sold my verse novel having only read two beforehand.

I've got a lot of reading to do...

Where I live is fabulous.
