Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
This week I am spotlighting Emily's Dress and Other Missing Things by Kathryn Burak. I got this ARC from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group last summer. The book was released on Oct. 2. Here is the description:
When Claire’s best friend Richy went missing, he disappeared without a trace. But when Emily Dickinson’s dress goes missing from the Amherst museum, she knows exactly where it is: in her closet.Beginning:
As Claire and her student teacher, Tate, attempt to figure out what do to about the dress, they begin to uncover the truth behind Richy's disappearing act. Following a trail of clues across state lines, Claire and Tate attempt to find the person that Claire knows in her gut is responsible for his disappearance.
"This is the window she looked out of every day," the tour guide with the white mustache says. Step right up, folks, and see that certain slant of light.Friday 56:
"I didn't see -- I mean I saw you, but didn't see you -- I mean, I wasn't watching" -- I clear my throat -- "you." There was no hiding the redness of my face, so I wont' even bother to try. "I was neither avoiding nor not avoiding you," I say. "I was being neutral on avoidance."
