Sure Signs of Crazy

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.

I LOVE middle-grade contemporaries that explore difficult real life situations with both humor and powerful insightfulness, and this one seems like it will do just that. And I'm already loving Sarah! I mean the girl has a plant BFF and writes letters to Atticus Finch...she clearly has buckets full of quirky awesomeness(which I lurve!). 

What are you waiting on this week?!
