    Under the teens list, “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” one of my favorite books of all time. I am 25 and it can be read by anyone. Sherman Alexie is a great author and a great teacher. This is an autobiography if nobody knew. Highly recommended.

    As a long-time reader of West Seattle blog, I’m so happy to see my first novel listed here! If people are buying Whisper, it’s all because of the wonderful booksellers at Square One. :-)

Sorry, comment time is over.
