2014 book 36

Jaclyn Moriarty's The Year of Secret Assignments
I was raving about Corner of White at lady nerd book group the other day, and a fellow lady nerd suggested I check out this other series by Moriarty, that's all told in letters and diaries and notes (to great effect). Only two are available for Kindle in the US, though! Luckily, each of the four focuses on a different group of kids (who seem to be background players in the others), so they can be read in any order. This one is about three best friends from a private school who are forced to participate in a pen-pal program with the local school for problem kids (or so they seem to perceive it). Three girls writing to three boys, what could go wrong! Anyway, it's all really funny and sad and sweet and I loved it. A/A-.
