Children’s Book Committee – February Pick
Sure Signs of Crazy
by Karen Harrington
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2013
Twelve-year-old Sarah loves new words, wants a first kiss, and is ready to face her absent mother’s mental illness and father’s alcoholism. (10-13)
Our young reviewer says:
I could relate to Sarah; I liked how I could understand what she was going through. I felt like I was with the characters, the places, and all of the characters are very detailed. It was the perfect balance of humor and more serious aspects.
