If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak is a great summer read. This book had me laughing along with the easy humor and insane situations the whole way through. The characters were relatable and I really enjoyed them. This is the perfect book for anyone to read and love. If Birds Fly Back  is easily one of my summer favorites.

This book was really good, fast-paced and exciting. I finished it in two days. I totally think there should be a sequel. It really has a classic fairy tale feel. Isobel is an artist, painting portraits, but not of humans. She paints the Fair Folk. These aren't tiny pixies with wings, but immortal beings, tall and exotic and not at all like us. They can't do creative work like writing, painting or cooking, so they like getting paintings done of them. They're pretty vain too. Isobel works not for money but for enchantments like the one that keeps her chickens laying well. Then one day the Autumn Prince (one of the Fair Folk, of course) comes to the town where she lives, Whimsy, where he hasn't been for 300 years. She accidentally paints him with human emotion. Apparently that's bad, because any sign of weakness could lead other Fair Folk to kill him. So he kidnaps her to take her to the fairy court to go on trial for her crime. Except they never get there. Chased by Fair Folk from other realms, they must flee elsewhere. Eventually, they begin falling in love, although that too is against the law. This book would be really good for artists and writers and readers who like fantasy, ages 13-17.

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour was such a good book. By the time I finished, I wished it hadn't ended. The author captured the main character's emotions  so well and you felt for every character. This was truly a work of art.

This book was so good and I just couldn't put it down. I'm in love with the letter library and I wanted one immediatly. The characters are humerous despite some of the heavy topics and you can't help but be emotionally involved with each person.
