The Secret of Sleepy Hollow Book Review ( @YlvaPublishing @andimarquette ) from @kleffnotes

The Secret of Sleepy Hollow is an inventive retelling of Washington Irving’s well known legend with an additional romantic twist. I love the original story and this isn’t the first retelling I have chosen to read, but I will say this one is now my current favorite. When Abby Crane, a descendant of the same Crane family as the long ago missing Ichabod, is researching the history of Sleepy Hollow and in order to do that she needs to make a trip to the town. On her first night there she bumps into a young woman who catches her eye. When the two meet again over boxes of materials connected to the Van Tassels they decide to share time together sharing their love for the lore of Sleepy Hollow and as they chat they begin to realize secrets that have been long hidden in the letters of Katrina Van Tassel.

Zenobia July Book Review from @kleffnotes

Middle school can be hard, especially when you’re the new kid. Zenobia July is a recent Arizona transplant in Portland, Maine after being adopted by her aunts. Raised in a small town by a religious family, Zenobia finds herself struggling with her new life though not just because of the move and new family dynamic. This is the first time in her life Zenobia is able to actually live as a girl. Her new school gives her a chance to live her new and true life, but even knowing who she is and wanting to express that every day, doesn’t mean that this new life is easy. On top of trying to make friends and finding her way in a new social environment, Zenobia finds herself needing to use her impressive tech skills to find out who is posting awful things on the school’s website. Lisa Bunker’s Zenobia July is a sweet and emotional read that is perfect for young readers and personally is a story that I think even adult readers can benefit from.
