Weekend reading

Liked Krech's Rebound, and was grateful that as a basketball book that dealt with disappointment, racial relations, and general discontent, it was still completely appropriate.

Also liked McCormick's Sold, even though it was sort of in verse, but not really. Still, since it is about a girl sold into prostitution, may pass on buying.

Enjoyed Abbot's The Bridesmaid much more than I should have. Pink, fluffy, but ultimately satisfying. Won't ruin the ending for you, but it was much different from Cleary's Sister of the Bride. We've made some progress in 50 years.

Kadohata's Cracker didn't do it for me. Almost, but not quite. The boys who want books on Vietname are going to give up on this too quickly.
