Other Great Reads...

Dust Lands: Raging Star,

One of the reasons I launched Childressink.com was to share books that couldn’t fit in Girls’Life. Space is so limited, and there are simply too many great books -- which is why I don’t write any negative reviews. Anything you see listed on this site is some of what I consider to have excellence in children's publishing, new releases and old.
