The Absence of Sparrows by Kurt Kirchmeier I received this…
Lorien Lawrence’s debut spooky middle grade The Stitchers is out today and you need to grab yourself a copy.
- Creepy neighbors that never seem to age
- Nasty pond that has an orange glow
- Grieving over loss of a loved one
- Beginnings of a romance
I used to say that I was too chicken for spooky reads, but I have changed my tune. After reading The Peculiar Incidents if Shady Street and then City of Bones, I felt confident to keep reading scary books. My students love scary books, so I need to be able to recommend some to them. I moved on to Small Spaces and then Scritch Scratch. After finishing The Stitchers I can say I am ready to call myself a lover of spooky mglit!
The Stitchers is a perfect blend of spooky and middle school life and experiences. I highly recommend to readers of all ages-who are ready for a good creep out.
