What I’m reading and Blog Hopping!

The Silent Boy by Lois LowryI am currently reading The Silent Boy by Lois Lowry.  I have only read one other book by Lowry, which was Number the Stars and that story was equally enjoyable.  So far, The Silent Boy is a tale about a young girl growing up at the beginning of the 20th century. She befriends a boy who doesn’t speak. I like the girl’s sensitivity to the boy’s “disability” although back then it was not called a disability. He was called names like imbecile and “touched”. Looking forward to seeing the book to the end!

Twice is Nice Blog

Hi there, found you through the blog hop. I like the sound of ‘Silent Boy’. There’s something about people who stop talking of their own accord that fascinate me. ‘The Piano’ is a book that has a heroine like that. I highly recommend it. It’s a fascinating story. They say the film is much better.

Have a great weekend! Best of luck on your blog.
