Give thanks for the books you love.

Books have a special place in our heart.

And since it's the month of giving thanks we thought it was only appropriate to give thanks for the books that we love - the ones that meant something, made us feel, helped us cope, moved us to tears, and warmed our hearts.

It takes hard work and passion to write a book like these, so let's give our thanks to the authors who shared their stories with us.

Dear Ms. Haddix, Amazing book! After I grabbed the first book I was hooked. The adventure and the connection to history kids was super interesting. Encouraging my friends to read this fast pace:) Mulan Hunter
This is my "go to" series. I read it when I'm bored, when I'm stressed, when I'm happy, when I need a little "pick me up". It's my absolute favorite. Always. :) Thanks JK Rowling! Julie

Thank you for showing me that perspective makes all the difference. I learned a lesson from Kirsten, Whitney, and Annabel I'll never forget. 10 years and this book resonates as strongly now as then. Jada
This book was the best I have read all year so far. Eloquent, heart wrenching, and beautiful. I think that this book in the hands of a teen who is struggling with his identity could make a difference. Jenefer
