Patricia Leavy has done it again, with a stunning fourth novel in her Tess Lee series, following the books Shooting StarsTwinkle, and Constellations. Supernova is a gorgeous, nuanced book, full of heart and healing and the joys and challenges of living a full, honest, loving life.

I recently discovered an incredible and important new book series by writer Lisa Sterne, called Onyx Says. The series is designed to help children develop coping skills while creating themselves. The first book, What If I Try, gave me goosebumps when I first read it, and I teared up to think of the powerful way that Onyx helps kids help themselves. It's an excellent and fun read, both inspiring and full of joy. Highly recommended!

One of my favorite authors, Patricia Leavy, has done it again. With her new novel, Film, she covers a lot of ground: following your dreams, the magic of serendipity, the importance of friends, and the importance of pop culture in life, as well as in teaching (!!).
 
I loved this book for so many reasons; let me just say: READ IT.

Picture this: Grand Rapids Comic Con, where we are always impressed by the cosplays, intrigued by the artists, and absolutely stunned by the authors. So there’s a high bar there, and we’ve interviewed several authors we’ve seen talk, in our Write This series.

What does a writing assignment mean to you? For many students, it’s one of the most tiring and boring tasks of college life. To get an essay for homework means spending several hours trying to formulate the proper words. It means staying at home instead of going out. Students find it difficult to express their thoughts in written form. Moreover, your 2-day long work can result in B, C, D, or even F grade. Nobody wants to waste time.
