I'm not talking about myself, but about a book titled Sorta Like a Rock Star. It's a great read. The heroine of the book is really likable: a high school girl named Amber who is an eternal optimist despite the adversity that she and her mom face- living in a school bus to be exact. But she's got her friends- the Five- her dog, a caring teacher, and a few other eccentric adults in her life to look out for her. They come through for Amber when she needs them most- after the death of her mother. As a reader, you experience the depression with her and wonder if she'll ever pull out of it. But with the help of her friends and the community, she manages to come out sorta like a rock star.
I am the librarian at LMS in Irving, Texas. This is my ninth year there and my sixteenthas a librarian. In my former life, I was an English teacher. This was also in Irving, in case you were wondering. I got my degree for teaching at UNT and then went back for my Master's there as well. I'm married- 15 years now- and have two kids. And we have three cats and 2 dogs. They are also a part of the family:)
