Quanti scossoni può sopportare un'amicizia? Bridge, Emily e Tab da piccole hanno stretto un patto: non litigare mai. Ma ora, a 12 anni, tutto sta cambiando. Aumentano gli impegni e affiorano i segreti, i non detti, le tensioni. A Emily piace un compagno di scuola e si caccia nei guai, Tab è sempre più coinvolta dal gruppo sui diritti umani, e Bridge si fa un sacco di domande: Posso essere solo amica di un ragazzo? Cos'è davvero l'amore? E come lo riconosco? Età di lettura: da 11 anni.

After much consideration, I think I’m going to begin this review with what has to be the hoity toity-est opening I have ever come up with. Gird thy loins, mes amies. In her 2006 book Betraying Spinoza: The Renegade Jew Who Gave Us Modernity (don’t say you weren’t warned), philosopher Rebecca Goldste Leggi tutto
“Who’s the real you? The person who did something awful, or the one who’s horrified by the awful thing you did? Is one part of you allowed to forgive the other?” Rebecca Stead is an author I’ve been meaning to read for the longest time. Her Newbery Medal winning book, When You Reach Me , was the b Leggi tutto
E ARC from Netgalley.com Bridge, Tabitha, and Emily have been friends for a long time, but 7th grade is testing their friendship, as it does for many people.

Man, the Banana Split Book Club! A book club in a school for kids with divorced parents. Just WOW. I hope it’s real because it would make me feel a lot better about humanity, seriously. Warms my heart to bits. My second book from Rebecca Stead and I have to say that she definitely has the ability to Leggi tutto
Rebecca Stead writes about youth so well that she reminds me of another wonderful author I loved when I was a girl: Judy Blume. Goodbye Stranger is the third Stead novel I've read, and it's very strong. It's the story of a group of friends growing up together, and how their friendship is tested by di Leggi tutto
Rebecca Stead has done it again. Pure magic! I have a hard time reviewing her books though, so hold on to your hats and cat ears! :D Goodbye Stranger weaves together love and friendship; betrayal and trust; boys and girls. A story filled with young individuals trying to find their way through junior Leggi tutto
“Love is when you like someone so much that you can’t just call it “like,” so you have to call it “love.” Rebecca Stead is one of my favourite middle grade authors, so I was incredibly excited to read her latest book, Goodbye Stranger . Liar & Spy and When You Reach Me feel a little younger, b Leggi tutto
3 stars I will always have Rebecca Stead on my radar after reading her perfect Newberry Award-winning When You Reach Me (an homage to Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle In Time ). Ms. Stead is one of the best 'middle grade' authors I've encountered. I don't want to dissuade anyone from reading Goodbye St
I had a lot of issues with this book. A lot of issues. First, seeing after the fact that this is probably meant to be more for the pre-YA crowd makes this book all the more puzzling as the subject matter is pretty mature on a whole, with a key plot point being middle schoolers sending racier and rac Leggi tutto
I often say that there's YA for Everyone (i.e. it's published under that designation, but presents no barriers of enjoyment to older readers) and YA for Teens (totally acceptable books that nonetheless trade in archetypes or tropes that will have lost their freshness and, thereby, their emotional im Leggi tutto
