Reading Matilda’s Book

This week, I finished a book that I was reading and going through old files on my ancient laptop. Trying to save special moments and delete so much junk that I have saved over the years became overwhelming, till I found found this shot.

I put my organizing things away …. and discovered that I did not have anything to read. So, I picked up the book that we bought for Matilda. It is called Counting By 7s. It is a youth book and it was wonderful. 378 pages of heartfelt events and emotion. I found this book in the youth section of Barns and Noble Booksellers, but I think that everyone should read it. Mostly adults.

It is easy to forget how children think and feel. This book reminds me of so many feelings and I cried. (a few times) Holly Goldberg Sloan is the author and I am so glad that I read Counting by 7s.

If you are 12 or 82, please put this on your reading list. It will help you remember how it felt to be 12 years old again.

Love you beyond the moon.
