    When you read than one of an author s books, there is the natural tendency to compare them and ask yourself which one is your favorite In the case of Barbara O Connor s works, that s an almost impossible question to answer First, let me say if you don t go out and get Wish as soon as it hits the stores this week, you are going to miss out on all the fun and excitement that s exploding in the book world from this, her newest Then, after falling in love with Wish, if you haven t read her others, like How to Steal a Dog, The Small Adventure of Popeye and Elvis, or one of the fourteen others, get going Most of all, do not miss Greetings from Nowhere where a heartfelt experience unfolds at a down on its heels motel in the Great Smokey Mountains In addition to being everything you want from a middle grade book, the craftsmanship here is extraordinary This book is a study in how to write multiple fraught points of view and bring them together in a memorable and gratifying ending.

    I just finished reading Greetings from Nowhere What a beautifully crafted story If I could write, this is the story I would want to tell The characters are so well defined that the reader develops a close relationship with each one I was sad when I reached the end The story was over much too soon I can t wait to share this book with my fifth graders I know that they will feel my enthusiasm and will want to read it as well Thank you, Ms O Connor I am looking forward to reading your other books I hope you will consider a sequel, so that I can learn what happens to Aggie, Willow, Loretta, and most of all, Kirby I have known many Kirbys during my teaching career.
