Rock the Summer with Readergirlz!

Readergirlz Prom

It’s the end of the school year, and readergirlz is celebrating that end-of-the-year tradition–prom night–and the risk-taking behavior associated with it. This month’s readergirlz author is Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Prom. Readergirlz asks the question, “Is prom a dream of a night, or is it a nightmare?”

Discuss the book with the readergirlz divas all through June on their group forum. On June 19, Laurie will join them for their readergirlz LIVE! at 6 p.m. PDT / 9 p.m. EDT. You can also check out this month’s other recommended reads:

Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson  

It’s Not About the Accent by Caridad Ferrer 

Shadow Spinner by Susan Fletcher 

A Step From Heaven by An Na 

She’s So Money by Cherry Cheva


P. S. A special shout-out to diva Mitali Perkins whose middle-grade novel, Rickshaw Girl, is a finalist for the Jane Addams Honor Book for 2008!
