It’s Friday, so we need a celebratory round of fifteen-word reviews!
1. Stepping on the Cracks by Mary Downing Hahn
MG novel about the homefront during WWII. Only read once but it stayed with me.
2. Oroonoko by Aphra Behn
One of the first novels. I’m sure that’s why it was assigned in class.
3. A Sister for Sam (Tale from the Care Bears) by Evelyn Mason
My parents bought for my brother when I was born. But I was a delightful.
4. The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare
Worth a read, if only for the stage direction “exit, pursued by bear.”
5. Ever by Gail Carson Levine
Sweet and clever take on Snow White. Gail Carson Levine rocks the fairy tale adaptation.

The Winter’s Tale is my favorite Shakespeare play!
It’s so good! Have you ever seen a production? I haven’t, just read it.
Yes, but just a BBC version on tape from the library. I had to read it twice for an undergrad class on Shakespeare and watch it. I think that requirement for each play, reading it twice and watching it, made a huge difference in my understanding and appreciation of the plays.
I hadn’t thought about Wait Until Helen Comes of Stepping on the Cracks in years…thanks for a reminder from my childhood!
