In a joint venture, First Book and book bloggers are kicking off First Book Blogger Book Club. I am excited to participate with dozens of other bloggers in this mission to spotlight Young Adult books,  First Book, and the mission they represent.

Please check monthly to see my reviews, links for First Book, and announcements about this new project.

First Book is a nonprofit group providing books to children with little or no access to books as a way to tackle the literacy problem locally. Community by community, book by book, child by child. First Book is making a difference!
