Update

I posted the other day about how much I loved Roswell High and Fingerprints by Melinda Metz when I was in high school and college. I thought it was Roswell High getting the re-prints, but now I believe it's actually Fingerprints. This is an amazing series and I can't wait to get my hands on it again. (I guess I could clean out my parents basement for my original copies...) Several of my teens are reading this series right now, so I'm sure it will do well in it's new packaging. I really hope they keep the shiny covers the original copies had-you could leave your fingerprints on the book series titled Fingerprints-such clever marketing!
The series is about a girl who can hear the last thoughts someone had when she touches their fingerprints-and she discovers someone is out to kill her. The series ended a little abruptly for me, but I loved it anyway. I hope you can all discover Roswell High and Fingerprints and I hope Melinda Metz has many more great books coming our way!

  1. I loved both these series as a teen. But then I read a book by her named Raven's Point that was really different and weird and I hated it. But I'd still try a new book by her.

  2. I started reading the first book from the fingerprint series but my library in high school only had the first! How many books are there? :)

  4. OMG yeah, it was really weird and gross. I went and looked and realized I still have it on my bookcase downstairs, I should really get rid of it. Ugh.

  5. Yep. Still own these ones too. And I loved the shiny covers. For months after I read these, I went around leaving my own fingerprints on desks and stuff at school.

    As far as I know, no one ever read my fingerprints though. :(

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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
