We are definitely a family of readers!  Most of us like the modern fantasy books and enjoy reading Brandon Mull, Michael Scott, Eoin Colfer, and Rick Riordan.  I'm a huge fan of reading Newbery Award Winners.  Whitney likes mysteries.  Really, we like too many books and have way too many favorite authors to list them all in a single opening paragraph!  Share your favorites with us below and we'll share ours!


  1. Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli

    Awesome book and quick read! Maniac's real name is Jeffrey and he's a white runaway whose become a legend in Two Mills. He's allergic to Pizza, unties knots the size of basketballs, stands in Finsterwald's back yard without getting the "finsterwallies", takes a bite out of Mars Bar Thompson's candy bar, and runs on the long, thin rails of the railroad tracks. The feat that makes him a legend, though, is how he brought the East and West sides of town together.
