Our selection for older readers is also dear to my heart.  Featuring my hometown, and a girl not unlike me, Ann Ursu’s Breadcrumbs is a story that weaves themes of friendship, loss and identity with good old fashioned fairy tale fantasy. This modern “Once upon a time,” follows best friends Hazel and Jack, both wonderfully imaginative and playful.  Unfortunately their friendship is in jeopardy.  To find out more, and for more on this creative story, visit our blog.
