I have been neglecting reviews lately and I think the reason is that I tend to spend a lot of time on them. Sometimes they take forever because I get interrupted or distracted (ok, usually distracted). Anyway, I thought I would try to do something new-the mini review. With summer coming I hope to see more teens in the library looking for pleasure reading and that means I need to be ready to make a quick sell. So here it is, my quick sell for Stork:
Sixteen-year-old Kat moves to Minnesota after her parent’s divorce. She discovers that she is a human Stork, responsible for placing new souls with the proper parents. She also uncovers a family secret, recovers repressed memories, and reconnects with a stranger from her past.
Why you should read it: With a perfect blend of old-fashioned fairy tales, Norse mythology, and a high-spirited, fashion-forward heroine, it is the perfect cure for the Vampire Paranormal Overload Blues (it’s a real problem, I should know). Also, there is a dreamy boy and kissing.

This book was so much fun and I am anxiously awaiting the sequel, Frost, due out in October. Check out the cover:
