This week's top of the heap: Best story broods
Gregor the Overlander series by Suzanne Collins. Boots just cracks me up, and I see so much of my little sister, Margo, in her. Gregor cherishes his little sister, and always tries to protect her. But, Boots has a natural ease with her surroundings, and in the end, usually ends up pointing him in the right direction. After all, she is the princess of the crawlers!
Lizzy: There are so many fabulous sibling relationships in the books I read. When I look at the brothers and sisters that I would like to be a part of, I can’t help but think of the Weasleys. Ginny, Ron, Fred, George, Percy, Charlie, and Bill are each so interesting and their interactions show their love and respect for each other. It would be a blast to be a part of their family and share their inside jokes and traditions. I especially enjoy the way Ginny holds her own with all of her older brothers. She has such a strong spirit and a unique relationship with each brother. Of course, the banter and complex relationships between the boys is also amazing. Still, Ginny learns to be her own person, but each of her brothers play a role in shaping who she is and what she believes. The Weasleys are a family that I would join in a heartbeat!
"The thing about growing up with Fred and George is that you sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."
