It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers cohost It's Monday!  What Are You Reading?  Be sure and stop by to participate and see what others are reading and recommending.

I barely finished this on time, but I made it two weeks in a row!  

The Year of Billy Miller by Kevin Henkes.

I couple of students in my Mock Newbery Club read this book, and both of them thought this was not Newbery bound.  I think it surprised many readers because of the age of the main character and the possible reading audience.  It is a tender story, and the ending was what won me over.

Next up...

Happy Reading!


  1. I haven't read any of Kevin Henkes' novels yet. Year of Billy Miller like a good place to start. Have a great reading week!

  2. Are you planning on participating in Deb Marshall's Middle Grade March? ( I'm glad she's starting with a reading marathon, since we're expecting more snow!
