Join Us: Twitter Chat with Jenny Torres Sanchez
Tomorrow, May 28th, Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia by Jenny Torres Sanchez is released (Running Kids Press). This was one of the best books I have read so far in 2013. In fact, it was for me a 5 star book. Jenny has agreed to do a Twitter chat with us on Tuesday, June 21st, to talk about the book, which really captures what it is like to be young, confused, and depressed.
So, get your hands on the book, read it and join us. Please. I would love to hear what others think about this book.
Here is my original review. Kirkus gave it a starred review and said, “An exceptionally well-written journey to make sense of the senseless.”
Tell us in the comments: What books do you think really capture the essence of grief and depression?
