Middle Grade Monday

Middle Grade Monday is a feature started right here at Reading Nook. It's a way to share news or reviews of middle grade novels on a blog that doesn't exclusively post middle grade content. Feel free to join any time and link up. 

This week I want to talk about... Sure Signs of Crazy by Karen Harrington.

Not every person responds to words the same way. Some words are trouble words. A trouble word will change the face of the person you say it to. Love can be a trouble word for some people. Crazy is also a trouble word. I should know. 

You've never met anyone exactly like twelve-year-old Sarah Nelson. While most of her classmates geek out over Harry Potter, she writes letters to Atticus Finch. Her best friend is a plant. And she's never known her mother, who has lived in a mental institution since Sarah was two. Sarah and her dad have spent the past decade moving from one Texas town to another, and she's never felt truly at home....until now. This is the story of one extraordinary summer in which Sarah gets her first real crush, new friends, and the answers about her family she's always been looking for.

A story about a girl who writes letters to Atticus Finch in order to try and come to terms with her mother illness and life. Yes. This is bound to be wonderful.

This releases on July 16th, so make sure you add it on Goodreads that way you don't forget to grab it.

This is a Middle Grade Monday Post feel free to link your middle grade reviews/news below :)
