book for the first time in a long time. And it was really good! It is THE CLONE CODES by Patricia C. McKissack, Fredrick L. McKissack, and John McKissack. You might say it was a family effort as Patricia and Fredrick are husband and wife, and John is their grown son.
a graphic novel for the first time. And what a strong tale it told mostly in pictures. The book is THE STORM IN THE BARN by Matt Phelan, a 2010 Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction. This is definitely a book for middle school ages. It is graphic in every sense of the word, the story being told through wonderful illustrations that depict emotion, fear, sadness and more.
