Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Review: The Warden’s Daughter by Jerry Spinelli Blog Tour

January 13, 2017 Blog Tour, Review 24

Review A fond memory of mine in middle school was when my English teacher read us chapters of STARGIRL by Jerry Spinelli every day. STARGIRL was an interesting, unique read that made me think, and THE WARDEN’S DAUGHTER affected me similarly. Cammie, the main character, is not exactly easy to get along with but she definitely grows on you. Once […]
