Book Review: Two Truths and a Lie + Giveaway

Two Truths and a Lie is an exciting new series that presents three articles on similar topics, but only two of them are completely true. Readers can actively search and look to see which one is true or not. At the end of the book, it does go section by section and go over which ones are true and which was not true. I loved the research tips section as well as the bibliography. I feel like you could use this book as a bibliography tool as well, showing students they can use a bibliography to do further research and […]

Blog Tour: Posted + Giveaway

Anderson never fails to impress me. I was never a nerd when I was in school, until maybe high school. I didn’t really understand labels, but I love how it’s coined in this book – finding your “tribe” – the people you meld with. So what is this book about? I’m so choked up from the ending that it’s hard to think about the beginning. It’s about bullying, standing your ground, and being yourself no matter what. Rose crashes into a group of 4 boys and Frost (our main character) knows that nothing will ever be the same again. Rose […]
