Mailbox Monday October 31, 2011




In October Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Savvy Verse & Wit.




Last week I attended the book launch for Yellow Mini by Lori Weber. The description of Yellow Mini reads:

Mark, Mr. Popularity, tools around town in the yellow mini left to him by his recently deceased father; his new girlfriend Stacey can’t believe her luck, but doesn’t understand Mark’s odd need to disappear into the woods from time to time; her former friends Mary and Annabelle try to find their place in the world – shy Mary transforms into a concert pianist and Annabelle into an world-changing activist with the idealistic and adoring Christopher by her side. In the background, the teens’ parents struggle with their desire to protect their children, yet give them room to grow into the adults they must become. Each voice tells his or her story in powerful free verse.


This book is written in verse - the first of its kind that I've read. I started reading it and it's hard to put down! It just flows. This is a great YA novel!
