A return to Berrybrook, pronouns, a pet-sitting service, and more!

Not as many reviews as usual this month, thanks to an infinite sinus infection eating my ability to concentrate, but I still managed to get SOME reading done.

Post-it Note Reviews are a great way to display books in your library or classroom, a way to let kids recommend their favorite titles without having to get up in front of everyone and do a book talk, and an easy way to offer a more personal recommendation than just the flap copy offers.

All descriptions from the publishers. Transcriptions of the Post-It notes are below each description. Reading those is your best bet—carpal tunnel has made my handwriting mostly a disaster.

Enemies by Svetlana Chmakova (ISBN-13: 9781975312725 Publisher: Yen Press Publication date: 09/27/2022 Series: Berrybrook Middle School Series #5, Ages 10+)

Felicity’s sure she’s going to do something big. Exactly what is still a mystery, but she’ll figure it out. Her sister, Letty, teases Felicity that she never finishes stuff, but that’s just because Letty is so perfect. Still, life is good with plenty of friends—drawing with the art club and playing games with her buddies keep her busy. But when she decides to join a contest to show Letty that she can get things done, Felicity begins to wonder if friends becoming enemies is easier than she thought. Are they really enemies, though…? What does it even mean to be enemies? And…who is it that she needs the most on her side…?
