If you liked Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Green, you will LOVE Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story. From the author of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, comes the complete musical outlined in Will Grayson, Will Grayson.
I actually read Hold Me Closer first, but didn’t feel like I was losing out on the story at all, so they can be read in either order. It’s a quick read, since it’s a play. It’s also as heart-warming as it is hilarious. The incomparable Tiny Cooper, who is very big, and very gay, will be a character to remember. I can’t wait for the audio version—or dare we hope?—the actual musical production. Two enthusiastic jazz hands!
Grade Recommendation: 9+
The final book in the Ashfall Trilogy will be published April 15th. We are anticipating this final chapter in the exciting series from native Indiana author Mike Mullin. His post-apocalyptic trilogy is terrifying because it could really happen! If you enjoy science, fast-paced story lines and action, this series is for you.

Did you watch the Oscars on Sunday? I did. I couldn’t help it. There is something about the anticipation of waiting to find out whom the winners are while the presenter slowly opens the envelope.
