In October, I got all caught up with my Random Read books. YAY!
This month, random.org chose #26 for me, so I will be reading 42 Miles by Tracie Vaughn Zimmer. I think Fate has smiled on me, as this is a slim novel in verse. I should definitely be able to stay on track this month!
Here is the goodreads description:
JoEllen’s parents divorced when she was very young, so she was used to splitting her time between them, shuttling four blocks from one Cincinnati apartment to another. But when her dad moved to the old family farm last year, her life was suddenly divided. Now on weekdays she’s a city girl, called Ellen, who hangs out with her friends, plays the sax, and loves old movies. And on weekends she’s a country girl, nicknamed Joey, who rides horseback with her cousin, Hayden, goes fishing, and listens to bluegrass. So where do her loyalties lie? Who is the real JoEllen? Linked free-verse poems, illustrated with a quirky array of found objects and mementos, create the vivid, realistic portrait of a young girl at a defining moment in her life.
