First order of business is to introduce Sloth's new sloth friend! His name is French Fry, and he's a nice little sloth. French Fry isn't quite as adventurous as Sloth, but he still loves to read! This Sunday, we're reading Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum!
So far: Sloth and I got Tell Me Three Things at Yallfest a few months back. (I will eventually make a post about Yallfest. I promise.) Since things are slowing down for the school year, with spring break and all my show commitments coming to an end, we finally got a chance to dive into it! So far, Sloth and French Fry really like it! It's a good mix of heartfelt and light hearted, and we're excited to keep reading!
Sneak peek: Since I'm actually writing this after reading more than just the blurb, I could pick something from farther into the book; however, the very first paragraph is so compelling that I knew I wanted to use it for this post right from the beginning - after I got Sloth and French Fry's approval, of course.
Seven hundred and thirty-three days after my mom died, forty-five days after my dad eloped with a stranger he met on the Internet, thirty days after we then up and moved to California, and only seven days after starting as a junior at a brand-new school where I know approximately no one, an email arrives. Which would be weird, an anonymous letter just popping up like that in my in-box, signed with the bizarre alias Somebody Nobody, no less, except my life has become to unrecognizable lately that nothing feels shocking anymore. It took until now - seven hundred and thirty-three whole days in which I've felt the opposite of normal - for me to discover this one important life lesson: turns out you can grow immune to weird.Tell Me Three Things comes out on April 5th, so look out for a review soon!
