I was only going to read adult books on vacation, but my request for "This is What I did" came in. It was REALLY good. Too bad he's in middle school or i'd nominate it for Tayshas. I'll have to mention it to Michelle.

I have to say, the big reveal was totally not what I was expecting. I thought we were working up to something in particular and then bam, Logan states it isn't that. I was practically frothing at the mouth to find out what it really was.

Great book! Thanks Joanna!
