Today for MMM! I’m going to tell you two quick stories.
The first is about my awesome friend. She put this book in my hands this morning at 6:45 (early book bliss!) as soon as I walked into school. She knew I wanted to read it, so she’s letting me read it before she does. That ROCKS!
The second is about the book Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr. I’ve been dying to read this story of a girl who gets branded as “the school slut” and her journey to escape that awful title. As a middle school teacher, I see these things happen all the time. And my heart breaks for those kids who get slammed with labels that are so cruel and so hard to shake. I cannot wait to dive into this story, even though I know my heart will hurt while I’m reading.
