SATURDAY MORNINGS FOR KIDS 8/8/2020  THROWBACK EDITION

This was one of my favorite Cybils contenders in 2019 when I acted as a first round reader for the award. Wendy S. Swore has written a sensitive, special book about Sophie, who has a port wine birthmark that she considers “hideous,” and convinces this fairy-tale fan that she is some kind of a marked monster, that some evil fairy or evil stepmother has cast a curse on her and all those she cares for. This obsession becomes a psychological problem that dictates Sophie’s every thought and move. It is a moving, unforgettable book.

35277358  Emma Otheguy brings another 2019 publication, Silver Meadows Summer to tweens, especially artistically “gifted” young girls. Gabriella wants to be like her girlfriends, but her cousin, Carolina, who is a “country bumpkin” is staying the summer. Loyalties to friends and family are at stake.
