BARGAIN BOOK OF THE MONTH (August)
Secret Sisters of the Salty Sea, by Lynne Rae Perkins
Alix and her older sister, Jools, have never been to the ocean. When their parents pack them up so spend a week by the shore, Alix is nervous about leaving home - but excited, too. At the beach, the sisters make friends, go exploring, and have adventures big and small. To Alix's surprise, as the week comes to an end, she finds she doesn't want to leave! Each chapter contains its own miniature discovery - from picking periwinkles, meeting a crab, and making sandcastles, to exploring the nearby town. Award winning author Lynne Rae Perkins has beautifully crafted a genuine and engaging novel about sisters, family, and exploration.
