Jeanette - Special Orders in Manchester

After a long day of cruisn’ through the various adventures in life (Indiana Jones has nuttin’ on me), nothing hits the spot like…chocolate. But once you say chocolate that’s all you need say. So these pages are dedicated to a few of my other passions: alligator wrestling, bull riding, reading books (big books, little books, picture books, no pictures books, even little black books), listening to music (from A to Z and back again) and a variety of other things. So take a minute to browse some of my faves and I hope they become some of yours.

Twelve-year-old Suee wears black, parts her hair differently, does not have friends in her new school and she likes it that way. Or does she? When she hears a strange voice in the dark, her life takes a twist she never expected. And her shadow takes on a life of its own! This new graphic novel mixes the issues of school, friendship, family and trying to fit in when all you do is stick out for one reason or another. Ages 10 up. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Colorfully detailed illustrations accent accessible text for all ages. There is something for everyone! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
