A few weeks ago I received my copy of See You at Harry’s – Jo Knowles’ newest novel!
I was so excited because I have been waiting so long to read this book and I was not disappointed. This is an amazing middle grade novel – Jo’s first in this age-level. Her past 3 books have been for teens/YA. Though each of her novel’s is unique, they all have a small piece of her heart within their pages. I was lucky enough to hear her read a few passages at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA. Jo always speaks so eloquently and candidly about her writing, and this was no exception. I am so excited to have my copy autographed and it’s has moved up to the “Autographed Copy” shelf in my bookcase 🙂
And maybe I’m biased after having Jo as my writing professor, but I think this is one of the best middle grade novels so far …..perhaps a Newbery contender? We’ll see!
