Want It Wednesday

Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder

Release Date: 1/5/10

About the Book: Restless souls and empty hearts

Brooklyn can't sleep. Her boyfriend, Lucca, died only a year ago, and now her friend Gabe has just died of an overdose. Every time she closes her eyes, Gabe's ghost is there waiting for her. She has no idea what he wants or why it isn't Lucca visiting her dreams.

Nico can't stop. He's always running, trying to escape the pain of losing his brother, Lucca. But when Lucca's ghost begins leaving messages, telling Nico to help Brooklyn, emotions come crashing to the surface.

As the nightmares escalate and the messages become relentless, Nico reaches out to Brooklyn. But neither of them can admit that they're being haunted. Until they learn to let each other in, not one soul will be able to rest.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I love Lisa Schroeder's books. I read her books in one sitting. My dog even loves Lisa Schroeder's books!

So you can imagine how excited I was when Lisa posted about Chasing Brooklyn. Especially when I found out it involves ghosts (yay!), romance (double yay!) and that's it's a companion novel to I Heart You, You Haunt Me and that Ava makes an appearance (OMG I want this book now yay!!) So yep, I'm pretty excited about this one. And I have to say that I met Lisa at ALA and she is so super sweet and nice and one of the coolest authors! She even gave me bookmarks to take back to the teens at my library-and they went fast! So be sure to add Chasing Brooklyn to your wish list.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
