  1. Ruby Holler
    Oh my goodness I loved this book so much. Old people raising preteens, man. Gets me every time.
  2. From The Mixed-Up Files of Mr. Basil E. Frankweiler
    I still want to live in the Met.
  3. Because of Winn-Dixie/Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane/anything by Kate DiCamillo
    Kate DiCamillo is a goddess.
  4. Pictures of Hollis Woods
    Still makes me tear up just thinking of it.
  5. Chasing The Falconers (series)
    My first and only obsession with being a criminal on the run as an 11-year-old.
  6. Little House on the Prairie: Louisa May Alcott.
    I wanted nothing more than to be a girl living in a hillside home. In hindsight, I'm really happy I'm not.
