Zut Alors!

Holy moly, friends.  If it weren't for the eagle eyes of Reading Rants, I would have left my Top Ten list at a scrawny 9!  This is what happens when I try to do things like blog during a break at work.

What did I leave out?  None other than -

The Secret Tree, by Natalie Standiford
This small town mystery slash friendship story has tween written all over it.  Moody and compelling, The Secret Tree has something for everyone.
