I just finished reading Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan. This book beautifully weaves together three distinct stories. Holding all three stories together is a mystical harmonica and the power of music. The story begins with Friedrich who lives in Germany in 1933, moves on to Mike and Frankie who are orphaned boys living in Philadelphia, and finishes up with Ivy, a Mexican-American girl who is living in California during the time of Japanese internment camps. Although I was hoping for a stronger ending, I still enjoyed reading this book. It recently was named a 2016 Newbery honor book.

I'm not one for graphic novels, but I just finished reading Harvey by Herve' Bouchard and Janice Nadeau. Harvey tells the story of a young boy in France whose father passes away of a heart attack unexpectedly. Harvey, the young boy, takes the reader through the experience of becoming invisible. While your heart breaks for Harvey, the illustrations are just a beautiful as the story itself.

I'm also in the middle of Rainbow Rowell's (author of Eleanor and Park) new book Carry On. I'll let you know how that goes!
