Happy Friday, everyone! I know that in a few months I’ll be dreaming of summer again, but for now I’m so done with heat and humidity and I need fall to start asap. (Either that, or I need to find a way to spend the next few weeks reading by a large body of water.) Until then, let’s get the weekend started with a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer:
Reading: This Side of Home by Renée Watson
Touching look at growing up, growing apart, gentrification, and the people who make a neighborhood.
Writing: “You’re either going to start dating or bite his head off like a praying mantis.”
One or the other.
