“What’s The Nine-Year-Old reading this week?”

Short-and-sweet-we-want-to-get-back-to-reading-because-it’s-summer version.

A Mango-Shaped Space by Wendy Mass


An excellent book for parents to read along with their children, Wendy Mass’ novel tells the story of thirteen-year-0ld Mia Winchell, for whom sounds, numbers, and words have always appeared in color. Until she turned thirteen, Mia kept her synesthesia a secret. But as she advances in school, Mia’s unique way of perceiving the world becomes increasingly hard to hide. Mass does a wonderful job of explaining what synesthesia is, how it feels to live with it, and Mia’s own developing appreciation for the opportunities and challenges synesthesia presents in Mia’s education, relationships, and art. 

The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan


 Because of course she is. Mommyo, too. Hey, what’s summer for if not for Mom-Daughter book clubs?
