Readergirlz: July

Current Mood: sick
Current Song: Ordinary Day by Vanessa Carlton

I am a readergirl! Are you?

The July issue of readergirlz is here! This month's spotlighted title is Goy Crazy by Melissa Schorr.

A romantic comedy with heart, Goy Crazy talks about the subjects of religion, dating, and family in a light but realistic tone. This Cybils nominee is a great pick to kick off the summer. The Teen Commandments alone make it worth the read. I recommend it for ages 12 and up.

Listen to the summer podcast at The Book of Life which opens with an interview with Lorie Ann Grover and an interview with Melissa Schorr.

The readergirlz divas and the postergirlz advisory council discussed many great books which share some of Goy Crazy's themes. We then made a list of recommended reads:

Fiction:
Confessions of a Closet Catholic by Sarah Darer Littman
Never Mind the Goldbergs by Matthue Roth
How to Ruin a Summer Vacation by Simone Elkeles
I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

Non-Fiction:
Got Issues Much? Celebrities Share Their Traumas and Triumphs by Randi Reisfeld and Marie Morreale

We hope you have or will read these titles too, and that you'll discuss them in further detail at the readergirlz forum!

Talk about these books and more at the readergirlz forum.

Read Chapter 1 of Goy Crazy.

Yay, readergirlz! Your recommended list was my own personal reading list last semester while I was researching for I'M WITH THE TRIBE, my own personal upcoming manifesto about yeshiva boys gone wild.

Summer '09, it's looking like, but I'll get you a firm pub date once it's available.
