Sunday Street Team: The Love Letters of Abelard and Lily

No comments :

Title: The Love Letters of Abelard and Lily
Author: Laura Creedle
Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: December 26, 2017

When Lily Michaels-Ryan ditches her ADHD meds and lands in detention with Abelard, who has Asperger’s, she’s intrigued—Abelard seems thirty seconds behind, while she feels thirty seconds ahead. It doesn't hurt that he’s brilliant and beautiful.

When Abelard posts a quote from The Letters of Abelard and Heloise online, their mutual affinity for ancient love letters connects them. The two fall for each other. Hard. But is it enough to bridge their differences in person?

This hilarious, heartbreaking story of human connection between two neurodivergent teens creates characters that will stay with you long after you finish reading.

Hey, Erin! Where Have You Been?

Hi, everyone!

I know I haven't blogged or checked in with you for  a while, but for good reason. In August, I started a long-term teaching assignment. I was extremely busy reading and planning lessons for seventh graders, and boy... what an experience it was!

While I'm out of the classroom now, I'm hoping to find something long-term again. I've gone on three interviews in the past three weeks, and I'm finding a lot more opportunity now that I have that big experience on my resume. Who knows... next year might be the year I finally have my own classroom.

For now, I'm hoping to apply for more jobs, get substitute days in, start subbing at more schools, and just improve my resume. I'm also hoping to start reviewing again soon.

See you all soon!
