#road2reading Challenge - ALA edition 7.11.17

All journeys have a starting place.
This is a weekly place to find books and tools 
that you may use with readers at the start of their reading journey.
Join in the conversation at #road2reading.

I can't wait to see the finished book - it's supposed to have sparkles on it, which absolutely would have appealed to me as a young reader!  This series features a young half fairy - half vampire!
