Bet you can guess: Who's the writer and who's the (young-at-heart) sixth grade teacher?
Here on my author site, I've happily handed over my blog space to Louise Hopping (@HoppingReads), my sister, my two-time coauthor
, and an enthusiastic reading teacher at St. Michael School in Livonia, Michigan.
For two decades, Louise has been evaluating books for tweens (ages 10-12.5) for quality, classroom suitability, and kid appeal. She adds the best titles to her locally famous FREADom classroom library.
This Readalicious! blog is for tweens, parents of tweens, middle school teachers, and anyone else interested in putting good books in the hands and minds of tweens.

Authors, editors, publishers: YES, you are cordially invited to submit ARCs and review copies of books for tweens (ages 10 to 12.5), fiction and nonfiction, English language only.
Louise only reviews or lists books that she recommends and can add to her classroom lending library. Email if you have questions.
Send materials to her school address:
Louise Hopping, Sixth Grade
c/o St. Michael School
Livonia, MI 48150
Ebook review copies are welcome, too, but the book must be available in a print edition. (The Readalicious! blog has a classroom lending library at its core.)
