I am a book lover. I love a good story, and I probably got this passion from my mom, who is a voracious reader. To this day some of my favorite books are those that I read as a middle school and high school student. Also having the fortune of teaching middle school for several years, I grew to love several other books in the young adult genre. I’ve listed just a few of my favorites below. I hope that the Mikey series becomes one of your family’s favorite titles.
