My journey as a high school teacher-librarian in the North Dallas area of Texas. This blog is for sharing ideas, programs, books, and more that are all simply "Librarialicious."

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Do you ever feel like no one really gets you, that you're alone even when you aren't? Do you feel invisible at times, overshadowed by those who demand more attention just by being who they are? Sydney knows that she's second best in her family. Not only is her brother Preston more charming and vivacious, he's the darling of the family - and the daredevil. When he gets into more trouble than he can get out of, Sydney's life is turned upside down. Forced to change schools, losing her friends, and dealing with parents who never notice her, Sydney feels more invisible than ever. Starting over is hard, but when she meets an unusual family, hope blooms in Sydney's heart. Maybe she isn't invisible after all.
Beautiful coming of age story that will appeal to anyone who has ever felt misunderstood.
