What's New?

July 4, 2015

A fantasy tale by the brilliant Naomi Novik, Uprooted tells of a peasant girl who learns magic -- and then needs to save the kingdom. Sounds like a generic plot? The rich details in this book are definitely not generic.

Be sure to look over my notes from this year's ALA Annual Conference! I had a wonderful time and learned a lot.

Happy Reading!
