I'm linking up with Kathryn and the gang over at Book Date. where we share what we've been reading and talk about life in general.
Friday was the last day of my baby's Junior year in high school. She's been very fortunate as the year has been almost normal. The school was quick to send individual students or groups of students home to quarantine but they opened on time in August and finished last week with no school-wide closings and managed to give the girls much of the fun stuff like retreats, proms, rally, and some other school traditions. Compared to other schools in the area, it sounds like we got as close to normal as anyone and my daughter said that absenteeism has not been excessive. Hopefully by August things will be back to normal completely and they can ditch the masks.
My son turned 29 this month. Its hard to believe that our years with children in the house are almost over. I'm kind of glad and kind of sad.

I reviewed the first book, Bumped, ten year ago and was looking at my archives recently and wondered whatever happened to the characters. Thumped was available on Hoopla from my library so I gave it a whirl. It was ok, but I don't think I was the target audience.
I published one review:
Finally, I wrote a discussion post: Should Reading Be A Mirror or a Lens? and I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Have a good week. Summer is almost here!
