Debutantes and Dromedaries by Deb Kristy

Going off-topic this week for a worthy cause. I recently had the pleasure of reading an advance reading copy of The Camel Bookmobile by Masha Hamilton. The ARC came along with some information on the real-life Kenya’s Mobile Library program, and I grew fascinated and did a little more research.

Slip Sliding Away by Deb Kristy

So, I’ve got this best friend, right? Her name is Janna, and she’s dating this rather geeky but nice enough guy, Sam. Now, Sam has this fabulous eggplant Karman Ghia and lots of geeky friends. So Janna, in the grand tradition of best-friends-with boyfriends-who-have-cars-and-friends everywhere, decides that we must double-date. I, being new to town, and fourteen, have never dated. I had that smooch-fest with Mark in the eighth grade…
